It's not out there. I know. I've looked. Here is a list of the bikes I've owned over the past few years: Suzuki V Strom Honda ST 1300 BMW LT BMW RT 1200 Kawasaki C-14 Harley Electra Glide Standard Harley Ultra Limited Harley Road Glide Ultra BMW RT 1200 Goldwing (non tour) Harley Street Glide Special Harley Ultra Limited That list is chronological, all bought new. I have spent countless thousands of dollars trying to find the perfect bike and I'm still searching. Some have been closer than others, but there was always something that was a deal killer. My primary areas of concern have been: 1) Vibration. I hate vibey grips. The best have been the BMW LT, Honda ST 1300, Honda Goldwing and the Harleys for lack of vibration. The worst was the Kawasaki C-14 and the BMW RTs. 2) Buffeting. I know it can be sorted out with aftermarket shields to some degree. The best were the Goldwing and the BMWs. The worst were the Suzuki, Honda ST 1300, and the Harley Ultra Limiteds. 3) Heat. The best by far have been the BMWs. The worst by far was the Honda ST 1300. The Goldwing was good too. 4) High speed stability. Best was the Honda Goldwing followed closely by the Harleys. The worst by far was the Honda ST 1300. 5) Weight. I'm 60, so weight is starting to become an issue. My current ride, the Harley Ultra Limited, is extremely heavy. Too heavy. The non tour Goldwing, even though heavy, didn't feel heavy as the center of gravity is so low. 5) Dealerships. Harley hands down has the best dealership network. The worst, for me, has been Honda. I live in Northern Virginia and it is almost impossible to find a good dealer. BMWs are problematical as well, but I've always lived fairly close to a dealership. But, if, like me, you like to go on long trips, hard to beat Harley's network. It gives one an amount of confidence that if something happens, there will be a dealer close by to help out. So, there you have it. I'm looking for a smooth, stable, mid weight bike that won't bake my legs and has a reasonable dealer network. My current thinking is I might try either a Road King or a Sport Glide. Anyone out there find the perfect bike ?
