A buddy of mine has one of these, and he is a seriously hard core-long distance type. He's always on it and says he has never had an issue. He has a removeable trunk when he's travelling with the boss. It's not my thing, but there's clearly nothing wrong with it. I think it's one of the better looking Harleys available now.

if you just want to ride, and you're not concerned about lighting up the twisties or out-running anyone, this is plenty of bike. they aren't a sport bike but handle remarkably well for their size and are especially nimble at slow speeds. they get good mileage, have all-day comfort, and have an outstanding support network

Congrats - you're really going to enjoy that one.

Hope to see you on the road. Stop by the Rock Store some Friday for lunch and show her off.

MG Stelvio, w/none of that off-road silliness. Available in Europe today, perhaps the US in 2013...?



Or this - either one.

Damn you!
I read somewhere these were here in limited numbers. Was it difficult to find and purchase?
Nice looking machine, man.

Not too bad, but there are several dealers in the SoCal area. A couple of them claim to have Racers in stock. Make sure you call.

I was thinking about a Paginale and went shopping for one to see if I fit because at 6'5" at 320# I find that it's someone hard to find a bike looks "normal". So I'm at the Ducati dealer in New Orleans this past weekend and asked the salesman to snap a picture so I can sort of evaluate what I look like on this sexy bike and the results are below. I'm on the path to lose more weight and in one year I'll get another picture to compare. If I look like a giant on the Paginale next year I'm going to buy a BMW S1000rr instead.

I still want a Paginale!

Today, I want the (just announced) Triumph Explorer XC. I know it's just spoke wheels and a trip through the accessory catalog, but I like it. Chances are good the factory installed goodies will price out less than buying the parts and installing yourself. Time to get a test ride on a regular Explorer and make sure the wife is happy with the pillion accommodations.

If you really want it, spelling it right is a good first step.
