Really have the itch for a new 2013 FJR... Really.

Pretty sure I could replace my Ultra Limited with one and never look back, not to mention I'd have a lot less money tied up in my bikes. Love my cruise control which it has and like the idea of only needing 87 octane.

Now I'll go back and drool over more roadtests and the 2013 FJR thread then kick the idea around for another week. I've got a line on one for a couple grand under list so all I'd need is an OTD total and then show up with a check

nah, I moved out to the country, on a golf course. The KE would be perfect for a little drunk & disorderly conduct.

I've had my eye on a Honda Shadow Spirit 750 for a while.

I still want one of these:



1962 Mitsubishi Silver Pigeon. Tiny little thing, but would be hysterically funny to go romping around the city.

do you have to be 50 to find the Hog appealing?
Seem to remember my brother bought one at 40 and he's riding a scooter at 50 .

Maybe so, I like'em and more so now since I'm also 50...+ especially the Victory's, which would be my pick IF I was looking for an overweight pig.

Personally I don't know what I'd buy, too many choices and for that kind of money a more economical car may serve me better.

I've wanted one of those for a few years now Power, carrying capacity, low maintenance, and good looks all make it seem like a good touring bike

Oh yeah, if you can't have a fun and exciting time on a Road King, the problem is with the rider and not the machine as shown by RoadHD in a pretty epic RR

I love this TM Racing Black Dream (it is for sale in the Flea Market right now, and no, I am not the seller, and don't know the seller, just love this bike);



I may be pulling the trigger today on a new 690 Duke;
