    Cool if you won the lottery...

    ...or came into a big wad of seriously crazy dough, where would you go to get all the bikeS you bought with the winnings set up, tricked out, farkled, painted, etc.?

    and what would you get?

    I'd just buy a new water-cooled R1200GS.

    The rest I'd spend on touring.

    I'd keep the 07 GS and the 2010 GSA sidecar rig, but would add an R12RT to the stable.

    I'd buy a dealership and put a "dealer" plate on whatever I felt like riding that day......

    I like the "buy a dealership" idea. If that was not possible, I would buy 2 bikes. Triumph Daytona R, and a 1600 GT.
    I think those would look good next to a Super 7

    I'd keep what I got, fix some things on the K. Definitely quit my job and ride more.

    First of all I wouldn't tell anyone. I would only add one bike a GSA.

    I have been playing the Canadian 649 Lottery for 30+ years and have always wondered what if?

    I am some what of an optimist and maybe a dreamer and I made a list just for this contingency.

    I would put a top flight mechanic on my personal payroll, and buy, ride, keep some, and then sell dozens of bikes. I would have a small fleet for when friends stop by and need to test them out.

    My motorcycle habit would escalate past Charlie Sheen's stripper habit.

    Now I gotta go buy tickets darnit.
