i did 7 years ago & will never go back to street bikes.
started with a 500 & 650, now a 350. just keeps getting more fun. less crap to worry about, suspension is competant & the fuel economy is pretty decent

My buddy rides a vulcan 900 or something, and he has been in envy of my XL600 since he got whooped up by my old honda coming home from work one night. he said he was going 98 and I "flew " past him. I wasn't looking at my speedo though

Get an 80's dual sport and upgrade the suspension! cant go wrong!

There are not cruisers that would be a better dual sport than a dual sport.
Bingo! After getting my KTM 990 my Roadking Classic didn't leave the barn for over a year and is now in someone elses garage and a KTM 690 will be in mine tomorrow.

The KTM 990 is hands down a better tourer/road bike then the Harley would ever be and the 690 will be my day tripper.
