At first I was attracted to the FB6, having had 2 Goldwings. I still like it, but I found something for about the same price that I like better. The Triumph Rocket III Tourer. It reminds me of the old Honda Valkyrie (feels strange calling it old, I clearly remember when it first came out, and all the oohs and aahs it got from the magazines) The Rocket III has 800cc more than the Valkyrie, and only half the cylinders. I think it is probably one of the best bargains of all the touring capable cruisers. It would get tons of attention if it were made by Honda (and probably cost a lot more)
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
