This puppy for fantasy. Except, no spares available, and no brakes. Bad combo.




More realistically:

Sharpen up your machine shop skills...you'll be needing them to make the parts, but very cool!

Can I wish for the skill necessary to ride it to its full potential as well?

Well the other side of this coin, at least for me, is once you get to a place in life where price isn't really a significant consideration when looking at new bikes, comfort becomes an annoyingly important factor.

I've been looking for an addition to the stable, and keep ruling out bikes once I ride/sit on them. So far it has been a case of "yea, not gonna work for more than 20 minutes". But the triumph scrambler 1200 is still in the running, and I still miss the Rune I sold. But all the nice new ones are non-starters so far.

I have been keeping an eye out for a nice rz350. Unfortunately the last time I saw one I liked I was out of state and it was sold by the time I was back. A Daytona 400 would also do.

Or that 250 twin two stroke supermoto from decades ago. The twd 250? tdw? anyway, last time I saw one it was $7k: eek:. Up from the $3.5k they were five years beforehand So even if price is less important, value is still important and a different calculation.

I really like the design of the rune, art you could ride. I keep measuring the garage and trying to see if one will fit again.
Though I've moved away from cruisers and don't want to go back to bikes that heavy.
The damn Versys is just under 600 lbs
and the older I get, the lighter I seem to like my bikes.
Now maybe the new crf450rl with a supermoto set up?
