I like the Triumph trail bike, but it really needs to get dirty.
I wonder if the builder would lend it to me to thrash around the Pyrenees for a couple of weeks ?
As for the 'Top Ten' I quite like 5,6 & 7, the rest don't do much for me.

I really like the shadow cafe racer. The rest leave me cold really. I don't get the custom thing where someone makes a bike that doesn't work like the first one. I suppose it's kind of the same as a concept car but to me it's not a bike it's a sculpture!

I like that one too.

2 and 4 dont do much for me but the rest are pretty tasty! Especially the Honda 4 and the Harleyton! The RD350 is kinda interesting, but the real thing would still be my preference!

Interesting and some good styling there - I do think mudguards serve a purpose tho
