What you really meant was supercharged. What kind of power and torque numbers does this beast have?

I'd take another Goldwing. This time with a six-speed transmission, electric up/down wind screen, throttle-by-wire with electronic cruise control. Yellow and chrome. Thank you.

It was the first rain and cold of the season riding home tonight and as much as I love my MTS, heated grips, shaft drive and soft comfort was at the top of the menu. I need a winter commuter

Rented an E-Glide Ltd the other day, and was pleasantly surprised by the low end torque and nimbleness of the big bike. I'm kind of getting the itch, but don't need the radio and fairing.

That blue R12R looks the biz. I might have to find a used one and a paint shop.

Quoted in full again as its a sweet looking ride, love the blue.
By the way, sounds like you're getting old and really want an RT but can't admit it

You're not alone.
I like their "Fat Bob" and the "Switch-back" but, my wish is for something with no chrome at all since I commute all year/weather long and salt eats up chrome.

Ha ha!! That's what I did a year ago. Now I have a Harley.

I ride like an idiot on my 'strada and tonight when I'm cruising for once, I get busted. I got the lecture but no ticket but he did call me Sir while I got the stink eye from him. Very depressing on all counts.

So yeah, maybe it's time to get the RT and cut back on the lane splitting anarchy the MTS seems to bring out in me. A track bike to let off steam is going to be essential though
