    Man - never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait to just go home and ride the bikes I have. Soon enough, I guess...

    Then 10 minutes later I'll want something else, I'm sure.

    Air cooled, high maintenance (maybe more by reputation than actual practice), non-adjustable suspension amd narrower rims. Still. Can't get it off my mind.

    I always thought MS's were awkward looking bike, but this one looks good to me. The Pike's Peak versions look good too.

    Yeah, the PPSE gives me the hives. Almost bad enough to overcome my apprehension of owning a Duc. Somehow the Griso doesn't worry me. What gives on that, huh? :huh :evil

    Sometimes hard to admit, but...

    I need to come out of the closet and admit lately I've been lusting over the Harley Road King. Bone stock.

    I love adventure bikes, but don't go off road with mine (a klr), and when I look at what I like to do on a bike these days, which is pretty much just go places, the Road King makes sense.

    Harley over the last 20 years has stepped up it's reliability, parts and dealerships can be found anywhere (important when you need something in east bum*&$^ somewhere), they're as comfy as a couch without being overly loaded (like the Wings or Ultraglides) and, most importantly, they are made here in the good ol' U.S. of A. ...

    I guess the first step is admitting you have a problem? :lol3

    Not a problem, Brian - I've been wanting one for a few years and I'm only 31. :huh

    would rather keep my current bike and use that $ on long trips.
    life is best with experiences not more stuff.

    What is it with headlights these days, (Guzzi California :puke1) a big round one worked great and looks vintage on Guzzi's.
    My pick would sadly be the Harley for the headlight alone :rofl

    That California 1400 headlight looks a lot better in person than in any photo I've seen of it.
