Similar to the Top Gear/Grand Tour specials.

Here is what you know:
  • This will be a week-long sport-touring road trip.
  • It will take place in a very diverse landscape from soaring peaks to expansive beaches.
  • This is a civilized nation with good infrastructure (good roads) and access to fuel.
  • You don't need to worry too much about fuel range or baggage - put your crap in the camera car.
  • You need to buy a good bike that will be safe and fun to ride
  • You will leave the bike behind to be sold when you are done - ideally for more than you purchased it for (let's say in the US market). Buy low, sell high.
  • You will be with others on bikes, so think about how you want to ride on twisty roads and your relative pace to the group.

I found this for sale in my area:

2001 Aprilia Futura. Unfortunately it has a salvage title, which will hurt resale, but is sure looks fantastic.
