spelling

Love your pictures. Makes me want to moto thru Mexico.

There is no letter "K" in the spanish alphabet. All the words that have this letter are foreign words. "Kilo" etc.

Looks like a great ride!

What is that attachment on the top of the wind shield and what kind of magnetic tank bag do you use? Are you pleased with it?

Question Like a Super Glide Custom

Looks like my beloved Super Glide Custom that Dakez helped me find. Interestingly, the current new bike line up on the HD site drops the SGC from the Dyna line up.

250cc

Get a 250cc bike or scooter, not too high a seat so you can flat foot it at stop lights.

Think of a Super Glide

After lots of research and soul searching (finally wanted to scratch the Harley itch), I decided on a Harley for the heritage, sound, dealer network and its from here in Wisconsin. Then I looked at...

Possible bikes

OK, I will be the first and mention a scooter, like a Burgman 650.

As alternatives, how about a Honda Shadow Aero 750 or a Sportster 1200C?

Front tire width?

Anyone have an opinion on the wider front tire on the current year model, versus, the narrower tire on previous years? I am wondering about low speed manuevering and hiway stability.

I agree. I demoed one and the floor boards vibrated horribly. Then I got on a Road King and it was wonderful. I am wondering when I should pull the plug and get a RK.

How about something smaller?

Don't think big and fast. I met a guy at bike night tonight that crossed Canada on a Vespa 250. I rode a Vespa 150 today. Do you need to go fast, or can it be reliable and slow? Stick to the...

Cry They lost the Triumph line

Just got a letter from Triumph USA today stating that Sharer's is no longer a Triumph dealer. Sad. They are great guys and have a great repair service, which, I hope remains open.
