    Randy, I just through a question your way in a thread started by ChopperCharles ... Are you following me? :eek1:lol3

    I like the exhausts used on both of those builds.

    Yep, I just answered your question in the other thread. The exhaust on both of those bikes is from Storz.

    Saw this on J&P's site. Kinda spendy but looking at parts for things you don't own always is.

    Looking at this is totally a "cart before the horse" exercise.

    Oh, I do that ALL the time. The real trouble begins when you start buying parts for things you don't own. :lol3 And yep, I've been know to do that too. :huh But, it's ok... The dreaming and planning serves as motivation for future projects and I'd much rather have my direction planned ahead of time than have a project bike and not know what I want to do with it. :thumb

    STILL
    waiting Honda....Triumph has the Explorer, BMW has the new 1200GS, Yamaha the Super Ténéré, what gives? This will do very well in the US adventure touring market. I'd buy one sight unseen if they made the announcement that it's coming to the US.

    Really have the itch for a new 2013 FJR... Really.

    Pretty sure I could replace my Ultra Limited with one and never look back, not to mention I'd have a lot less money tied up in my bikes. Love my cruise control which it has and like the idea of only needing 87 octane.

    Now I'll go back and drool over more roadtests and the 2013 FJR thread then kick the idea around for another week. I've got a line on one for a couple grand under list so all I'd need is an OTD total and then show up with a check:deal

    nah, I moved out to the country, on a golf course. The KE would be perfect for a little drunk & disorderly conduct. :rofl

    1962 Mitsubishi Silver Pigeon. Tiny little thing, but would be hysterically funny to go romping around the city.

    :rofl do you have to be 50 to find the Hog appealing?
    Seem to remember my brother bought one at 40 and he's riding a scooter at 50 :huh.

    Maybe so, :lol3 I like'em and more so now since I'm also 50...+ :D especially the Victory's, which would be my pick IF I was looking for an overweight pig.

    Personally I don't know what I'd buy, too many choices and for that kind of money a more economical car may serve me better. :dunno

    I've wanted one of those for a few years now :D Power, carrying capacity, low maintenance, and good looks all make it seem like a good touring bike :thumb

    Oh yeah, if you can't have a fun and exciting time on a Road King, the problem is with the rider and not the machine as shown by RoadHD in a pretty epic RR :deal

    Yeah. I'll take one of them. Maybe a little custom paint or pinstripes.
