    Was fortunate to find what I did have to fit me back then...:lol3

    Today I'm in a more laid back mood, and would prefer the bike that I traded the IT465 in on....

    Earlier this year I bought a 2012 Electra Glide that's white with metallic dark blue inlays. To me, it is one of the nicest looking motorcycles I have ever seen. But, this new Guzzi is freakin' gorgeous ! Good thing there isn't a dealer near me or I might get myself in trouble !

    I'll be househunting soon. My priority: a 3-car garage (only one slot will have a 4-wheeled vehicle in it). For all I care the house could be a studio that sits over the garage. The garage is the key...the rest of the place? I'll make do with whatever comes with the garage.:lol3

    3 car garage. Extra wide, extra deep. Fits a lot of bikes, 2 cars, tools and a bunch of other crap.
    Riding mower and snowblower sit outside :-)

    Duh, forgot to add that I want a 749 today.[​IMG]

    Check his wording. He's saying he's wanted the Road King but the MG may be calling to him even more.
