Wow with having had, like so many on here, such a large and varied selection of bikes, from Chineeeesy moped, to Electra Glides, and from Ariels to Hinckley Triumphs some new and many second hand I fine great difficulty in defining "the best ever" among them. Indeed I liked every one, even the crappy ones as they all had a purpose at the time.
Well that has defined the conundrum that I have, and an answer I guess is due. Well for me "the best ever bike" is frankly the one I am riding at any time or, like now at the keyboard, the last one I rode in which case it would be my 1959 Triumph 5TS Speed Twin. However if it stops raining this afternoon that choice may be the 1959 Model 50 or my Hinckley Fruxton. Choices? Who would have them?
