I can only pick ten? I can say I would like at least one from every category, but I'm too inexperienced to say which ones. I seriously considered a DRZ400 SM before buying my Ninja 650 earlier this month, but 2k off the MSRP for a "leftover" helped me make what I know was the better choice for me now. I needed something that I could ride on the highway comfortably. I'm still looking at the DRZ400SM, but I'm not completely sold on it for my off roading yet. Choosing a bike is hard! I rode my Ninja to Daytona Biketoberfest (had my break in done and first service within days of pulling the trigger), and I would be hard pressed to choose ten bikes if they gave them to me. I fell in love with the blue Hayabusa, but I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet... By the time Bike week rolls around, I'll probably feel more comfortable test riding more bikes, so I may come closer to being able to make a wish list after that.

I've been up to eight bikes and it is hard to ride them all, especially with my work travel schedule. With that said, if I were to own 10 bikes, most of them would be classics.

An old Norton,
an old Moto Guzzi
an old Triumph
an old Harley knuckle
an old Indian
an old BMW
My vintage trails bike
A new Triumph Scrambler with Ohlins suspension front and back
My Harley Road Glide Ultra with full Ohlins suspension
My Harley Road King with full Ohlins suspension

Of course I would need a heated and cooled shop to keep these bikes in so they would stay preserved. I saw where some pro sports player had glass walls between his living room and the garage where he kept his toys so he could admire them without having to walk out into the garage.

I would add a bunch of the small displacement, japanese , two stroke bikes we never had access to in the USA.
Bikes like suzukis rg 500 and the Honda nsr 400.
