Gotta admit that their line of bikes could be very interesting... Give me the street legal version of the Expedition!

Because I'm not getting younger. (I'll be a helluva lot older before I can afford one anyway).

That does look fun, but with all the MTB parts, it can't be cheap!?

Stopped by the dealership, and I really like the looks of the cb 1000, also like the street triple r. Then I stepped out in the garage and was happy to see the bike I picked up on the fall. This is the one I like today:

And I own it.

Probably the same thing it meant when I bought my first BMW at 22.

Same here, I like several new bikes but the one that's paid for and is just as much of fun sits in the garage. Also, if it begins to feel dated, I break out the R90s.





I also stopped by a dealership yesterday and sat on the new bagger GW, $20K . The new FJR wasn't there but it's up there too. The next inline was a MotoGuzzi Stone around $8K. Then there was a 72 MG Ambassador on display , that's when I got back on my R90 and rode the rest of the afternoon.

Considering I bought a brand new mini bike with basically the same motor for $500 shipped, it seems a little steep. You can get an AWD 450 Christini for $6995!?

I don't know if it's an all out typo, or if the accidentally let slip something about their next-gen "top secret" bike, but right now their front page says:

"Freeway – 250cc 150lb…need I say more?"

That could be a ton of fun.
