G.o.a.t

No, I'm not talking about four legged animals or even Rossi or Hailwood or Ago or whomever you regard as the greatest motorcycle rider. I think it might be interesting to hear which one (and only 1) road based (as opposed to racing) motorcycle you would love to own.

So in other words your Greatest Of All Time road going motorcycle.

Mine would be the Vincent Black shadow.

My favourite too (..obviously!?) There's absolutely nothing I'd have in its place.

As it happens, the chap I bought mine from was selling it in order to finance the purchase of a second Egli Vincent . (The one he already had was stood next to the MV in his garage. Gorgeous bike, I'll admit, but parked up alongside the MV it looked a bit drab).


G.O.A.T..? ..is a very subjective question though, 'cause we'd all define the term greatest using different criteria, but if we're discussing the best sports bike bike ever built, the RC30 tops my list.

Vincent Black Shadow. My dad owned one in '57 or '58. I'd love to be able to track that specific bike down, but there aren't any records.

RGV 250 CHANGED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope they bring back the two stroke to motorsports with full development.
For now i am going to get up on an RS250 :-)

Also, being that mazda has been slowly moving foward with it and norton did such a good job, I would love to see a modern rotary engine bike.

and lastly, i want them to bring in a modern super sport version of the Yamahas GTS!! Imagine a race rep with a 600 engine!! With modern technology, you could trim the fat that it had to better assist the smaller engine!!

Oh yes, and for looks, benelli tornado tre. The 900 is another bike that can use a touch of evolution (and i dont mean the 1130, i mean modern technology coaxing out the performance, not displacment. Whats the deal with Italians? there answer to everything is "throw displacment at it") :-)
