    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.

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

    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.

    Yeah, but it's always a risk:reward kind of thing. Sometimes a slap is worth it. :deal

    Sometimes living off whey shakes and ramen noodles for a year is worth it so you can buy a Paningale. :deal

    If they were US bound I don't think I could resist.
