Yes, there is always the NEXT bike...
You're exactly right Peter. People ask me the same thing knowing that I have ridable bikes from the 1930s to present and my answer's the same... my favorite is the one I just rode!
Just doesn't get any better than being able to compare and contrast the best bikes from different eras by riding them... you experience something new with each ride!
