I'm normally not a cruiser kind of guy either. I find I have to make time to keep the ADV Loaner Shadow exercised and to go out and play with the Moto Guzzi EV that I'm storing for a gentleman from the Netherlands, but for a two-up slab burner, that new California 1400 certainly looks enticing. The demo units are supposed to hit the dealers in March and April. I'm looking forward to a little seat time on one.

Thanks for a truly laugh out loud moment on the intertubes this AM.

I keep going back and sitting on the one at the local dealer. The one that has a sign that reads "do not sit".

They're cool bikes in the flesh. I can see how an HD guy would find one hard to resist.
This could be the best model year Honda has had in a long long time.

Because I am afflicted with "Hey-Look-At-That!" Syndrome, I find myself looking at a new Kawasaki Concours more and more... and more.

Better looking in the flesh. Local dealer has 4 on the floor. I'm smitten even with it's drawbacks, no ABS or cruise.

Hokay! On that candid admission, I can back you up on it...at least until/unless somebody does a good job of making fun of it.

Yeah, I suspect it'll leave a Harley well behind.

What Goose is that? Breva 1000?

We're rugged individualists. If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand.

What's the local Honda store these days? I bought a few bikes at Hawkeye Honda about 100 years ago.

And enough with the cruise. Get the bike and a set of Throttlemeisters. Call it good. Geez.

I do get the ABS bitch though. I'm still a little bent that I couldn't get it on my ZX-14R last year and it's available this year.
