Dream Garage
« on: March 05, 2010, 02:44:38 PM »
A wealthy philanthropist who chairs a foundation for underprivilaged motorcyclists has just received a massive government bailout and wants to pass the money onto you. So, he presents you with a blank check and instructs you to buy any 10 motorcycles for yourself. They can be new, used, classic or antique, any type from any manufacturer in the world. It could be something you own already, (you can lie to the philanthropist and pocket the money), or it could be something you had in the past and want again. Doesn't matter. But, it must be 10. Any more or less, and you will have to return the money and be disqualified. What are they?

Mine, (in no particular order):
1. Vincent Black Shadow
2. Brough Superior SS100
3. Ducati 900SS Hailwood Replica
4. Triumph T160 Trident
5. BSA Rocket Three
6. Norton Commando Interstate
7. Honda CB77 Superhawk
8. New Norton 961 Commando
9. Late 70's BMW R90S
10. And a Big-Head Bullet
