Winter fantasy

Probably a similar thread somewhere but wasn't able to catch up to it. You are gifted any motorcycle of your choice (free of charge). What would you choose and why?

No takers? Extreme brand loyalty, out riding, or still shakin off that Thanksgiving diner? No plans to jump ship here. Just passin the time on a dreary winter day.

We ARE our choices.

I'd like to add a small cruiser to my garage. Maybe a Kawasaki Vulcan S.

I can't justify the cost when I already have three bikes. But if it were free...

I have read you question last night. Got me thinking ( which is a problem anyway) . Also this question is asked frequently on my favorite motorcycle podcast, and for the last 3 years , every week it is a different bike. One bike keeps coming back for sure. It is the ARCH METHOD 143. It’s a bike produced by ARCH motorcycle company part owned by the movie actor Keanu Reeves. It is a limited production bike. Comes with a S&S V Twin 143 cubic inch engine ( 2343 cubic centimeters ), 170 HP and 200 pounds of torque. They will only make 23 units. You can read about the bike on the ARCH Motorcycle company web site. This is Unobtainable bike for my self. I got a whole list of bikes (changes frequently) of the dream bike garage. But that is a much longer post.

Garage
For FREE, probably the Honda 2020 Gold Wing DCT (non-tour). But then I'd ride it only a few years at most and then think to sell it. Not really interested in keeping anything bigger or heavier than what I now have.

Recall reading about Keanu/ ARCH. Definitely a serious machine. If we are going to dream, dream big.

Considered the Wing or the 2020 Triumph Rocket. Agree totally on the bigger/ heavier thing.
