What vehicle/motorcycle do you plan to own next?

I thought I'd take a twist in what Johnny D posted about previous cars owned and see what cars/motorcycles you guys plan to buy/lease next. Try to be realistic here and stick with things that you actually do plan to get rather than find yourselves fantasizing about.

For me..I plan to get the new Lexus SUV that's coming out! For some strange reason I find myself drawn to it!

I'm going over to the dark side.

Since I have two, M5 and MDX, if I decided to replace MDX, I would have to go with an X5. No need to replace M5 yet. However, I won't mine getting an 996 TT.

996 TT!

Without a doubt! I am sure I am not the only one with this choice! Unless I get a really sick deal on a 550M.

Well I have a tough choice. If I buy a bike, I would get a used R6. I would looove one!!

But it would be more practical for me to buy a SUV or wagon. The reason is that i do a lot of road trips and have to drag my boat around.

But if I won the lottery(or got a bit more spending money), I would get an M3 and a X5 (maybe even a Suburban).

For the time being though, it looks like I am stuck with my Schwinn and Trek bikes

Get the R1. I have both (sold the R1) and the two don't compare. The R1 is outright evil and scared the sh!t out of me every time I got on it. The thought alone still does.

I had it for a year, polished frame, swing arm, chrome wheels, full Akrapovic exhaust and a few other things. I tell ya, I miss it dealry but I am glad I got rid of it. Thing was crazy!! So....sold it and bought myself a set of AC type IIIs when my Beast was in production.

There's NO way I'd endorse getting a R1 as a first bike. I think that Duncan should get an R6 instead. The R1 was scary fast! I couldn't believe how fast I could get places on that thing. Unfortunately for me, I totalled my R1 last year and so thus my sanity remains in one piece.

Oh I agree Jason, if it is in fact Duncans's first bike, I would also suggest to stay away from the R1....stay very far away!!

But, if you all ready know how to ride a street bike and are crazy enough to buy one, I would go with the R1 because you will loose some interest in th 6 rather quickly (if you have driven the R1).

My blood really got pumping with all this R1 talk. Now I really miss her! Every time I get on my R6 all I think about is what the ride was like with the R1.
