My GS has just finally been paid for!!!! I'm FREEEEEEEEE :D ....... to be fair that was a quick three years! Last payment just went out today (actually two days early) and put me overdrawn hahahhaha. She'll be right! Anyway, I was gonna by a new steed but decided to wait. Gonna downsize the homestead next year and with it, half the mortgage. Mrs Rider-Guider suggested I spoil myself to a new Triumph when we get the new place. AWESOME. Street Triple probably. That'll be a right blast.

To be honest buying a house was the best thing I ever did. I had it for about 7 years, accrued some equity and it paid off in the long run. I am fortunate enough to live a debt free life until I decide to buy another home haha.

Congrats on getting the bike paid off, best feeling plus some extra $ to set aside.

Still looking like the Street Triple in 2020. I've been lucky with the GS so far in that it hasn't required much other than the servicing on schedule. However, I'm due rubber and the clutch has been less than smooth recently so I'm looking at $1000 of expenditure pretty soon! The bike is worth it though. Kidney for sale.

I have the big service on my Street coming up in April ish on my 765R, am hoping to trade it in before it is due, but none of the manufacturers sell a bike I want currently lol :D

There are 2 road bikes I want: A Triumph Speed Triple 1160RS (which doesn't exist other than rumours) or an Aprilia RS660 (which doesn't exist until late 2020).

I want a mental motard with a spare set of rims for playing off road ...... something bullet proof so probably a DR400 (carby model), I could then hone my skills for endo's and crazy stunt riding, plus the same as you - a decent street/speed triple, my urge is strong for an unfaired Trumpet. The 765 will be ideal but a bigger block definitely appeals too. I have had a lot of time in the mid 90's on an original 900 Speed Triple, it's the bike I enjoyed most out of all the stuff I rode. Great neck muscles back then hahhaha.

Dreambikes would be interesting ;)

Probably the XT with big bore etc as "normal" bike.
Than a Zero FX or FXS as supermoto/enduro/offroad bike.
And a big one for long distances, so KTM 990 or 790 or something like.
