Oops, I deleted my post virtually as soon as i posted it as I didn't want to get into Falco bashing. It's whatever you want it to be.

Benelli Tornado LE, without a doubt.



Ducati 888 and 916



Ducati Supermono, i just love it. Call it a singles thing...



Bimota SB8



Aprilia RS250 flat tail




I think the TESI 3D is stunning too.



I have more, jsut need to remember them.

Oh, the NR75 - Something I could only dream about (hmm not much has changed) back in the 80's. For its time, it looked superb.

I've always loved ZXR's in a rough and ready kind of way

Here's a picture of my old ZXR750L1 not mint as high mileage and well used but loved it to bits :-

Well if we're going all out race bikes, then i'll have Bret Randalls old bright pink, Harris framed (polished), 700cc single.

Nothing used to touch it, would love to see that bike again
