I wanted a Harley....

...and I was into building almost more than riding, so I bought a basket case Ironhead sportster. That was stupid on a number of levels, and after building it (a couple of times), I bought an R1200Gs, which quickly became my real bike. Dependable, smoothe nimble, awesome bike compared to anything I'd had up til then. Next I also ended up with a 2002 Road King. It was a great sounding, great looking bike, not bad for travelling either, although it generated a lot of heat for the passenger, my wife, especially when caught in traffic. It wasn't very nimble, nor did it stop quickly, and I was actually glad to finally decide to get rid of it. Harleys are cool, but they don't feel as safe to me as my bimmer does.
