There is no doubt. He's had it for 16 years, but I found out he lusted after one for a long long time before he was able to own one.
I still remember the first time I was up there after he got the bike, I would have been 12 at the time. He would take me on rides starting when I was so little I had to sit on the tank. I can't remember what the bikes were, mostly his Virago's I think. But I do know once he finally got the beemer, I really can't remember him riding anything else. Not to say he didn't, but there is no doubt he loves that bike.
