How about for free coffee just about anywhere in the U.S. I have the dealers in my GPS . Couple of weeks ago I was on a road trip feeling tired thought I'd look to see if I was close to a dealer and there was a dealer less than 20 miles away. Stopped in they made a fresh pot of coffee (even told me when it was ready), they had a clean bathroom too and I didn't have to buy that expensive coffee from you know who; didn't buy anything just looked around.

I'm tempted to try one after spending the last 20 years on sport bikes.

Been thinking of selling my 2012 BMW S1000RR and getting a new '14. BMW hasn't been ridden in 3 months.

They need the boat and the fishing line and they are set.

People who pay attention to crap like that don't care a single thing about the bike, Though I doubt there is a single woman out there that wouldn't rather ride on a Harley than a crotch rocket.

I see myself out on the open road, all alone, like Then Came Bronson, or that guy on Renegade. A Harley is probably the only bike left you can form a bond with, just like when people rode horses. Yes, Harleys have been romanticized a bit, but I think they deserve it a bit after 110 years. They have earned their desirability.

Well said. I definitely feel 'attached' to every Harley I've owned.

Harley's are cool

My missus was the driving force behind me getting a Harley. I have friends with Harley's ,but have never really thought about owning one.
So this bargain comes along and I say ok,only because purists insist it is not a real Harley,but it was cool looking so what the he'll. So this is what I bought.




then the missus is on about how uncomfortable it is on long trips,by this stage I had become quite fond of it,could scare a good couple of bikes for the first few gears. Anyways I succumb to the pressure,and because it is cool to ride with her,I end up buying this.

Have you ever ridden a Ducati? Just ask because IMHO they have some "character"

I have never ridden one, but have sat on a couple of used ones at dealers. They may have character, but they also cause intense pain. I can't imagine trying to ride one down the road with half my weight supported by my messed up shoulders, and having to bend my neck back as far as it will go to see where I am going. I had to sell an EX500 because of the pain it caused. A Ducati would be much worse. I have yet to ride or sit on a stock Harley that was uncomfortable. A Sportster 883 would need forward controls and a better seat.

To me character is, well, almost the opposite of perfection. I like my toys to have quirks, foibles and idiosyncrasies. For example, I loved the “clunk” of my Sportster’s transmission shifting into first, and I like the way my current Guzzi tries to shake me off sideways when I play with the throttle. That’s why many Japanese bikes don’t appeal to me – they may be better in every measurable way but they’re too perfect for me. As always, YMMV.

Jerry is physically and mentally unable to ride any motorcycle that doesn't resemble a cruiser or a scooter, he'll remind you in every thread, often multiple times per post. Any motorcycle not made for him is stupid

Sit on the Diavel. That's an interesting machine. Very different from the others.
