I ride a '97 Fat Boy, but I like all kinds of bikes. If I could I would also have a CBR1000, and a Ducati or two (love the dry clutch)

I ride a sportster. Been loving Harleys since I was a kid, but am drawn to just about any Vtwin.

Wink What's the bike of choice here?

I mostly ride my 1979 Honda CM400A. I love these CM400's.My first bike was an 81 CM400T. Will be picking up my 80 CM400E soon.
Many that I have talked to say that they are too small. Not enough Umpff. But they work for me and since I am a newbie, I don't need or want to fly.
And since some parts are no longer available, I have parts bikes too.
I would probably have been better off just getting a newer Rebel, but I like these bikes. I love the style. And I have picked up some pretty good deals so..
If I need to, I can sell off one (or two ) And with the price on gas pushing up at an alarming rate, the demand for bikes grows!

Currently riding an SV1000S for the road, sport touring with some track days thrown in and a DRZ400 for the dirt. Love em both at the moment but there's lots of stuff out there I would like to throw a leg over some day.

Post what to buy next

I have an '02 Road King Classic with over 50K and am looking at a rebuild around 60K. I was looking at the '08 and '09 Rocket III touring but I have questions. Anyone here have a Rocket touring? I looks like it is set up like the Road King in many ways. I want to know about reliability, breakdowns, maintance costs, etc. I pull a camper trailer with the Road King and could use something with more power and reliability.

I like riding bike very much. I think that the Harley is better and more beautiful than the Honda. I wish that I could afford the Harley to ride on streets. But I don't have enough money to buy one because it is too expensive.

I have been a faithful GSXR owner for 20 years. Every bike I have owned was a GSXR, but I would like to have a Road King.

These bikes are made for a variety of off-road motorcycle sports, such as motocross, rallies and track racing. They are light weight with smaller engines and have high ground clearance to protect them from the uneven terrain. They have very little bodywork and no fairing and they have large wheels with very high suspension.

I just sold the Honda, just not loving it like I used to, you know?

I'm thinking about getting a Glide and adding in a mustang motorcycle seat - going to have more time off soon and I've heard that its one comfy seat. Thoughts? Anyone ridden on one?
