All the shit bikes! :)
My dream bike changes faster than the weather and it always depends on what kind of riding I'm doing at that moment. Right now I'd quite like to go for a spin on the 125cc I've been building as a project! There is something unshakeably fun and light hearted about smaller cc bikes. My dream bike is simply dirt cheap and different from the last thing I rode. That said I would quite like a Supermoto...

My dream bike doesnt exists. I'd have to build it, which I'm tempted to do!

It would basically be a full fairing, shaft driven triple RS. So a new modern Sprint ST. It would have an LCD screen, Cruise, heated everything, driver tech such as cornering ABS, Built in phone control and Nav. Removable luggage with a clean look when its off (no racks) and full touring luggage capabilities when luggage is on. Built in lighting and power into the luggage.

Its the bike that Triumph would make, if Adventure Touring bikes hadn't taken over the Sports Touring market.

Unsure if the 1200 Tiger engine, or 1050 Speed Triple RS engine would be best. Not like I will do it anytime soon - but it is a niggle at the back of my mind which I might need to scratch at some point! Would be a fun project.

It sounds like you'd be 90% of the way there if you started with a Triumph Trophy... Just saying! :p

I'd struggle to choose just one bike - the Blackbird remains a long term favourite, but it doesn't do everything I want hence also having a naked and a custom in the garage.

The only thing I really want that I haven't got at the moment is an ADV bike, but I think I'd get bored riding one on anything other than a mixed tarmac and dirt tour.

Goldwing... closest to a car you can get on 2 wheels, and nearly weighs as much :p ;) :D
But then thats not a Sports Tourer, is it? :D

I basically want a 2020 Sprint St. Would have to be a Sports Tourer. Something thats a Sports bike, but comfortable with all the tech and gadge. Most certainly not a car nor a Goldwing.

The new Goldwing is borderline between touring and sport touring. Yeah basically the new Wing sounds nearly exactly what you want!

Personally, disagree. It's a lot more touring bias and a lot less sport look.

It doesn't tick the emotional box and bike purchases tend to be emotional purchases and not logical ones.

Goldwing is a pass.

Although, I'd have a Rocket 3 GT if I had £20k!

I'd have a Z1400 if i wanted a new sport tourer. But the bird can't be beat for the price. Honda are missing a trick by not replacing the bird in the line up.
ooff that Z1400 is some bike. What a beast. I agree, Sera, Both Honda and Triumph miss a trick IMO Honda not replacing the Blackbird and Triumph not having a 2020 Sprint ST!

Maybe the BMW K1600B is more suited to you? I like them, but can't imagine what maintenance costs would be, plus the nearest dealer is about an hour away.

Oh, well yes the Goldwing does not LOOK like a sport tourer. It just rides like one! But yeah if that look is important to you then I guess not.

A motorcycle purchase tends to be an emotional one. Looks aren't everything, but they do play a part for me along with many other bits that make up the equation. Nothing wrong with that. Im starting to feel like I have to defend my desire to want to build myself a custom bike, bit strange :p:D

My brother and I used to dream about building our own custom bike. We had sketches and blueprints and everything. It was going to be expensive though and take a TON of work, and it was much more affordable and easier to simply buy a new bike.

Of course. Fully aware the work that would be required, especially from how much its taking to rebuild my '73 mini pickup.

Remember - this thread is "Dream bike" well My dream would be to actually build myself one. To my personal requirements that ticks my box.

Not sure why I feel the need to defend myself :p:D - my dream bike would be one that I build to my specific spec. Let's move on
