Although a BMW wagon would be nice, there is something so organic about cruising the roads on a classic motorcycle. Whether its a chopper, bobber, cafe racer or just a classic stock bike it provides a entirely new dimension to the notion of a road trip. I prefer the classic Japanese bikes from the 1970's and early 80's for their classic aesthetics and notorious reliability. Lots of the British bikes like the Triumph are beautiful but also feature some renowned problems (most notably for myself, the cost). This 1979 Suzuki GS425 is an example of a classic beauty that would be great for a day trip down the coast or maybe through the mountains: both of which are beautiful during the summer.
