Question One only

So, if you had to have one bike and one bike only, and could have any one bike of your wishes, what would it be?
Would you keep your sweetheart, or exchange her for something a little (or a lot) different?

Inquiring and bored minds want to know.

Right now the only thing I am interested in other than what I currently have is a Gold Wing.

tuff call

what if I could have a frankenbike?

maybe the gadgetry of the gold wing, the raw pull of the V2k, the comfort of a nice beemer tourer

i dunno

right now, it would have to be a 'Wing (which i am not ready for), or a Street Glide with a TON of motor work, or just a metric motor swap
but, since i can't afford that, it's probably going to be a stock Street Glide.

Speaking of Street Glides a guy on one with an S&S motor pulled along side me and shadowed me all the way back from Brent's on Saturday.
I'll tell you, that thing can haul some serious butt. I dropped a gear and passed a car or few and he kept right on my butt, and it handled well too.

I had previously seen his bike at the local custom bike shop where I get my tires done. This guy has at least an extra $15K into his bike, but it sure looked and sounded good.

A C14 or FJR, but only if I could find some way to lower it significantly.

if you can't change the horse, change how you ride

get a pair of gene simmons thick sole elevator boots and you'd be good to go

it's all about the motor at that point. the new 96ci motor is supposed to be pretty decent, even rated at 92.6 lb. ft. but no way will that come close to a V2K. i am hoping it is comparable to a 1600 Nomad, that would keep me somewhat happy. at least until i can afford a turbo for it......
