Seven bikes in seven days!

Somebody, one of my blogging buddies (Sonja maybe?), started the "seven day challenge" - outfit your stable of bikes by choosing a bike for each day of the week; a fantasy motorcycle collection. Money is no object....sounds like fun, lets play! You might notice that I prefer Adventure Touring machines.








For a nice relaxed Sunday ride what could be better than a Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Electra Deluxe? The Bullet inspires images of jacket, tie, and beret clad riders off on a Sunday ride out to the country side, stopping at a green meadow for a picnic and tea.
Monday's ride; start the work day week off right on a sassy Triumph Scrambler.

Tuesday take a ride on a sexy looking, very sexy sounding Benelli Tre - K. The Benelli has a triple, if you search you tube, "Benelli TreK test" you will hear and see what I mean......



Wednesday, another beautiful Italian with a LoveLy set of twins, the Multistrada 1200 S


Wednesday yet another sweet Italian is in store for the spoiled rider. Can you see the pattern here? The Moto Guzzi Norge, a good looking bike, with a sweet sounding V but the Goose has the engine mounted cross-ways with its jugs sticking out on each side.
Friday has to be the V-Strom, a bike that is actually in my garage. Since I've owned two Suzuki V-Stroms, and I absolutely love the Strom I would be remiss to not include it in my stable. The V-TWIN engine, and the comfortable ride make this bike a winner! I've put a combined 98,000 miles on the stroms and have no real complaints. It will be a sad day when this bike leaves me...........


Saturday is for the Triumph Speedmaster. I have no idea if I would enjoy riding this bike, I've never even touched one, but I've always loved the drop dead sexy look of the Trumpet Speedmaster.

There you have it, one thumper, one triple and 5 twins. Sounds like party time in Tombstone's garage!


Thanks for reading! :)

Great bikes. Pretty good list you have there.

I debating putting a Royal Enfield in my seven as well. I think my list would change weekly though depending on mood.

Excellen choice I think, well done.

Trobairitz - For certain some of the others might change on any given day, but for me I would keep the Bullet on my list. I love that look!

Raftnn - Thanks! Now to win the lottery so I can buy them...

Nice collection. I had briefly considered the Enfield too but, there were only seven days in a week...

Sonja - "A month of motorcyles"? :)

Nice choices. It is a difficult choice for me.

Ken said...

motoroz - Thanks, and thanks for reading!

Dear Ken:

For the exception of two, I thiink you'll need to have a cot in the garage for the mechanic too.

Great choice of bikes though.

Fondest regards,

Jack - I agree. It's fun to think about but then the reality of the cost of valve adjustments just for the desmo alone makes me a little ill. Ahhh well........
