Nice assortment!
Now you just need a big single.

With the exception of the Honda Monkey I once started out on, I don't think I have ever ridden a big single. And that Monkey certainly wasn't big. Had all of 50cc's.

Only singles I've owned were the 83 Yamaha XT550 I learned to ride on, and the YZ426 supermoto I had. Both shook less than the Buell, but got buzzy in the top end. The YZ typically stopped being enjoyable anywhere over 60 for normal traffic, it would get over 100mph if you really wanted it to, an accomplishment on a 300lb bike that was that tall.

One of the bikes that was the most fun to ride was my old BSA B50SS (500cc scrambler which was mostly a street bike with very modest dirt capabilities), I think it was a 1971 model. It didn't vibrate badly at all but was practically impossible to restart when hot.
I don't think I'd buy another one but it was a lot of fun when I had it.
