If you could only keep one....

If you only have one bike, this thread is not for you...
but for those of us who own several...
if you had to git rid of all your bikes but one...
which one would you keep...
I hate to admit it, but for me, it would likely be the TMGP bike...
my crf100...it is the one i have the most fun riding.. it would not be practical for anything but TMGP type racing, but it is the ride i enjoy the most..
how about you, which would you keep and why?

Ooh... great question, but tough to call. It's like asking me which of my 5 limbs I'd hack off to save my life.

Even though I've only owned it for a week and ridden it around the block, I'd have to go with the SV1000S. It is the quinessential Jack of all trades and master of none. It's a sport tourer, commuter, naked hooligan, track bike all rolled into one. Not the greatest at any single one task, but it can sure do them all. I bought it specifically to let me to thin the herd.

Personally, I'm not giving up the C14 without a domestic fight. For most of my street riding, I do like a heavy bike, for the power, stability and comfort.

Right meow, my new-to-me KTM 200xc that I haven't gotten to really ride yet....but this could just be the honeymoon phase.

Before I recently acquired it, I always told my buddies that if I had to choose one of my bikes for post apocalyptic times, it would be my yz426. It's the tractor that keeps moving forward. It is very reliable and can go on and off road.

When I get the plastics back this week, it will have been Fully restored and I spent about twice what it's worth doing it all!

I know, but I don't have one currently (for now). The Duc would still win out though.

Been looking at an XR650R tarded out. I can't go over my four bike self imposed limit though, and don't know which of the current bikes I'd sell.

My XR1200X.
Just did over 500 miles in the Hill Country on it.
It handled it all very well from the slow stuff to the fast and comfortable as well.
Only downside is no passenger seat.

My 06 VFR800. I ride it to work, it's fun on the back roads, and it'll eat the highway miles with over 200 miles between fill ups. To the store for milk or a 2000 mile Iron , I've done both and a lot in between on it.

I'd sell all of mine and pick up a KTM 690smc or enduro R with 17's. It would fill the role of my current scoots. Three I have now are specialized to fill roles the others can't. The 690 though seems like the best of all worlds.\

If I HAVE to keep one of the three I currently own, then it is going to be the KLR

Of the four bikes I have owned, I really really really miss my 954. I would choose the 954.
