For those who ride, would you choose......

..the car you have been lusting over or the superbike that you have been lusting over?

Keep in mind if you take the bike, you keep your current car whereas if you choose the car, you don't get the bike.

Obviously there will be bias since this is a car forum.

I'm torn right now on what to choose for spring

If it's your only mode of transportation I would choose the car.

The bike would be an additional mode of transportation as you would keep your current car.

I would do the car first then the bike but even if I was flush with cash I would be scared to ride a motorcycle...

I been riding for awhile now...nothing beats riding a sportbike down the mountain roads...sometimes it's fun to blast down a straightaway going 150+...when ur so close to death you feel so alive....

So that being said, would you have done it the other way around if the 848 was released soon?

We all knew ducati was going to release a smaller 1098.


Makes me miss my 748.

I actually might opt for the bike in spring, but it's hard to pass up on a new M coupe.

I've been researching the 924 big bore kit for a 749 instead of a 999.
