    That looks like a great bike to get out and see the world. Are you heading north into Oregon at all? There's been a few days of rain, riding temps are good and the air is clear, sightseeing is pretty good.

    That red bar and shield would look mighty fine on my basic black:thumb

    Definitely enough power for what it weighs.
    A 131 would be insane in this bike.

    we’re going as north as Bridgeport. And tomorrow we’re heading across the pass all the way to Monterey, then south.

    So, I have decided to attend my first BMW national rally in Great Falls, Montana next week but am having trouble deciding on which motorcycle to take from St Louis, Mo. I just put 1000 miles on my 2020 Road King with a trip up to the Harley Museum. It just turned over 10000 miles and cruise control is wonderful. And it really is comfortable on the interstate. My 2008 GSA 1200 has an appointment Friday for a service. It has 91000 miles and has been problem free. It simply fits me better than anything else I have ever ridden which is probably why I still own it. It does not have cruise but the Kaoko throttle lock does a pretty good job.

    Honestly I see advantages to both, enjoy both but it seems like a BMW should go to a BMW Rally. Maybe I will just flip a coin.

    Original bike spirits: spray cleaner and polish is the shiz. Bike was extremely dirty and it handled everything pretty well.

    Sometimes wish I had pushed harder for an EGS or a streetglide, for the comfort.
    The street bob is fantastic, and I have a sissybar/back rest coming from Edward Richie that has a spot for a bag.
    But damn do I miss locking saddlebags and a fairing sometimes.

    That's along the lines of the eventual goal.
    gonna grab some thrashin supply bags for now, and throw a tall fairing ohad considered the sport glide and the fxlrs.
    But the street bob was just a "fuck it!" Kinda thing.
    I certainly don't regret it but comfort is always nice.

    I'm still too young for a blacked out electra glide!

    Enjoy what you have. It's a good looking bike and one I'd like to have.

    Your bike is such a great combo of good looks combined with functionality. I sorely miss the SG factory side cases on my new bike. For me they were the perfect size and shape, quick detach was the cherry on top1

    A Street Bob with quick detach windshield and some Kriega bags can take you a long way. :thumb

    I've become addicted to locking hard saddlebags. Carry all my gear with me all the time. I really loved clamshells but top loading is now my jam.
