...then mine'* ready to explode! Now that the weather is getting better I wish I never sold her. Its been over 2 long years withour her *sniff*. It'll take one hell of a sales pitch to the wife to ever get back into one but I'm up to the challenge.

Well, a couple of reasons. Couldn't make enough time to ride, storage issues, that maturity and responsibility thing, and...oh, yea...I nearly lost my left foot on the last one. Shortly after being able to walk without crutches I bought it new. Only put 4100 miles in the 2 years that I owned it.

Loads of fun, though.

Dude!!! I can't waitto get the Road King out. Sorry, don't mean to tantalize, but looks like this weekend will be a good weekend for a ride. Those crotch rockets are definitely catching my eye, and I am hoping to get a pocket rocket (not quite a crotch rocket, but still fun) with a light kit as soon as I sell The Addiction (SSEi).

Good luck. Also, see if you can comprimise with the wife, and pick up a touring bike so that she can ride along and with a somewhat more comfortable seat for her.

Randman, the one I regret was a Ninja 600R. I should have kept it.

Look at a Buell, I've heard good things, Harley motors!
