    Bucket List purchase...

    Not sure if I did a wise thing but I impulse bought a bucket list bike and just got it home. But it's practical purchase since it has heated grips right?!
    I think there's another forum member with the same bike no?

    On your bucket list or not, one should have what they want unless payment is first born or something like that. Even if you don't keep it long it will have value when your done with it. Cost to play with it is much lower then. Enjoying it is key. Besides winter is coming so your heated grips do cost.

      It's not practical. And it doesn't have to be. Buy whatever you like. No need to rationalize it.

      Enjoy the new bike.

        Is that an HP2 Sport? Any modern BMW is on my bucket list. K1200s anyone?

          Good thoughts on bucket list stuff. You only live once right? The guy I bought it from was actually afraid to ride it due to lack of replacement parts (in case he went down). But I guess I'm not really worried about it in the same way and will just deal with it if/whenever I cross that path.

          And yes, eyhonda, it's a HP2 Sport. Been wanting one for years and when my teenager it in the garage, he started laughing because I still have a die cast model of it that he used to play with when he was tiny...

            Very nice ride! Enjoy it! It may not be wise, but most bike purchases are emotional. It's only practical if you bought it for needed transportation, which I doubt. "Honey, I need to get to work and this is the only thing I could find!"

                Absolutely bad ass!!

                Dude. Love it.

                If it makes you happier than having that money in the bank would, then it is practical imo.

                Always wanted a modern BMW since I road a 1000rr back in the day at Summit. Some very nice and trusting man who didn't know me from a hole in the wall let me run a practice session on it.

                Oh boy, what a bike that was. I assume they only for better from there.

                Congratulations duder!!

                    Lovely, and well done! That is the only BMW that really appeals to me - I mean, they're mostly all pretty nice but I don't *want* the others like I want one of those.

                    I did something similar with a Ducati 851 a few years back, now that it's out of my system I should polish it up and pass it off to the next caretaker and go looking for something like this.

                      Might need another WW Resto sticker for the HP2…

                        The 851/888 is also a bucket list bike, post some pics please!

                          That's an awesome find. Don't see many of those around.
