Well that's to be expected from a nation that calls nipples "breast warts" ! (According to James May anyway).I would stick my neck out and say the 961 is the most beautiful motorcycle ever made. The BMW is to my eyes, without wishing to offend anyone, just plain ugly!
"Most beautiful bike ever manufactured." Now that's a tough one. I don't think I could ever narrow the choices down to one. Awfully hard to beat some of the Ducatis, but if you included rideability as a criteria, that would eliminate a lot of those. But the Italians have certainly had some other beauties too. I'm currently drooling over a Brutale that a friend is thinking about selling.My eyes tell me that most beautiful bike ever manufactured is my “Griso 1100” , please note beauty is a personal perception , the BMW , while I have no doubt a great bike it just don’t do it for these eyes ... actually never have been a fan ...
The accessories for the Thaiumphs are pricey as well and the quality lacking , so that's just par for the course.Ya know. I just bought a 2020 R9T Pure. Only ridden for a couple 100 miles. I really like it! I traded in my EBR1190SX on it.
Was very shocked when I started looking up accessories for the Bimmer! WOW!! Expensive!
Bought my 961 Commando SE in 2918 with 550 miles on it. I LOVE it! But it's not an everyday bike for me. Love the look of the engine. But in my mind it's a great bike in need of an engine(Nice tranny too)! But I'll never sell it.
My other bike is an 03 Aprilia Tuono. Now that is a fun bike that is really comfortable & plenty of power. Went on a 2000 mile trip on it.
For bike shows, bikes nights or taking it the museum bike days, I take the 961. It gathers a crowd!
Where does the BMW fit? Not sure yet. But I'm sure I'll find a use for it!! Lol
I've never heard that. I would assume he's talking about male nipples which is fair enough (what are they for?).Well that's to be expected from a nation that calls nipples "breast warts" ! (According to James May anyway).
Are you including the 250, 350 and 400?Bevel head ducks are beauties.
But the shape and stoutness of the Vincent is mesmerizing.
I can stare at a Vincent motor from different angles of hours.
It's an organic design that kisses the eye.
I didn't even know that Ducati imported the singles to the US.View attachment 14809 View attachment 14810 View attachment 14811 View attachment 14812 View attachment 14813 View attachment 14814 L

I’ve been trying to get my hands on this original 1970 Ducati Mach 3 Desmo 350 with the rare dual cap tank, clip ons and tach.
