    What's a good complimentary 2nd bike to the Z900?

    One thing I've noticed is that I'm continuously thinking about a new bike or 2nd bike.  Even after riding off of the showroom floor with a brand new motorcycle, within days (sometime hours!) I've fallen into the "youtube rabbit hole" again, and I'm fantasizing about an ADV, a cruiser, a Hyabusa, an old 250 2-stroke mx bike, and old Duc,... it's non-stop.  Can you ever be satisfied with just one bike?

    My Z900 is great, and I don't necessarily want to get rid of it, but I'm getting the "itch".  I'm really interested to see what Yamaha's R9 is going to look like, and I have that on my wish list as a possible 2nd bike.  And inline 4 along with a cross-plane 3 sounds like a good set of options to have...

    I'm curious to hear what is on everyone's wish list for either a next replacement, upgrade, or an addition to your current stable.

    That Verys 1k is a sleeper.  I spent a week or two contemplating a Ninja 1K before, but it was a little too practical.  I'm drawn to the crazy stuff for some reason...

    A scooter. Scooters are seriously underrated. Something 300cc or larger, with a big storage pod under the seat. Don't dismiss the idea until you've tried it.
