Default Just for fun

Hypothetical situation:
You don't own a motorcycle at all. You will be given a free motorcycle, any motorcycle you choose... with TWO stipulations.

1) YOU CAN ONLY OWN THIS ONE MOTORCYCLE. IF YOU BUY ANOTHER BIKE YOU HAVE TO GIVE THIS ONE BACK.

2) YOU MUST LEAVE THE MOTORCYCLE 100% STOCK. NO MODIFICATIONS WHATSOEVER.

What motorcycle would you choose?

2006 Victory Kingpin

RPW Thor Pipe, Lloydz ECU Flash, PC-III, PTS (-2), Rivera
Primo Clutch Spring, 31 Tooth Pulley w/Buell Belt.

2010-2012 Ducati Multistrada 1200S. I loved that bike until a young kid decided to run me over!

Probably an "Adventure" bike of large displacement. Not sure on the make. That would have to be researched.

It would be a toss up between the Vision and XCT. I wanted a Vision before I realized how small the saddlebags actually are.

I would shoot for the best do it all bike... I think the only bike I could ride in 100% stock condition, and one that would offer the most versatility, would be something like a Goldwing or K1600B.

'Wing....more dealers, more accessories (you probably lied about not doing that) and more dependability.
As for me, a Can Am Spyder RT. Yeah, I know it has one too many wheels, but hey, I'm 82, but still full of piss and vinegar (more of the former) and the real incentive here is Pretty Wife said she'd ride with me again if I got one. We have LD toured together for about 200,000 miles on first gen Yamaha Ventures, but when I got the XR, after attempting to get on it, she said that requires a passenger much more athletic than her. But she's good about my riding off into the sunsets.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

If I was 20 years younger, that would be my first choice.

Sport touring and good power only drawback is the $$$. $16,000 to start.
