Who wants to buy a Miata?

There are too many interesting bikes for sale, new and used. Here are the ones that have caught my eye today.

First off is the above Ducati. Low-mileage 1200s, basically my dream bike. I even like the powder-coated exhaust! This has been on CL for awhile now. I don’t really want to spend this much on a bike...but I could totally justify it if it was my only form of transportation! What could go wrong with a daily driven 1200cc Italian bike and no dealers in my area?

I’ll admit to some curiosity about the new Ninja 400. Once good weather comes back (43 of the last 45 days have been rainy, kill me) I plan on trying one out. Buuuuuut but but... While the 400 is allegedly a great entry-level bike and the cost is reasonable brand new... I’d take a 650 if the price was right!

The only bike on the list that I’ve ridden, the engine was so magnificent that I couldn’t tell you the first thing about the rest of the bike. I know there were some major updates at some point that fixed some issues, unsure if this 2016 is pre or post fix. I think it might be the “bad” one :(

The dark horse. I’m going to say this right now, I would absolutely rock the pink wrap. Not only that, I’d enjoy every second of it. Up until my death, which I imagine would be pretty quick piloting an S1000r with my limited experience.

I’m drawn to all the quirky designs Honda has made over the past few decades. Case-in-point, this wacky helix. There’s no way I could bring myself to spend the $3k or so that 99% of scooters seem to go for in this market, but $1k... That’s more like it.

AAnd one more scoot for good measure. I doubt a scooter will be the next purchase, but I suppose if a cheap enough one shows up I could buy it as a commuter and just keep saving cash. Something like this, but... Maybe $800ish?
