Same here, put some fair miles on the RG back in March and April, but with the rain lately I'm sticking to the cage. I'm not a sunny day only rider, but if the forecast is saying rain then I prefer not to. People in this state don't know how to drive in the rain period and riding a bike is already risky enough, I'm not about to willingly combine the 2 and sign my own death warrant

So I don’t have a bike yet. I didn’t consider a cruiser till I spent some time at the dealer for this class. I need something I can fit in my shortbed and I really like the feel of a 48 Special or the 883 sportster. Kinda digging the Triumph bobber tho.

We’ll see as time passes.

Nothing says you're only allowed to have one bike. I have 5 and each has its purpose because there was no 1 bike that would be able to blanket all of the riding styles I enjoy. Do I agree with Harley's pricing? Not one bit, but up to a point they are good bikes

Valid argument I guess. Lol. Check the used market thoroughly, lot of great deals out there, hell Harley's biggest competitor isn't even Indian or Victory...it's used Harleys. If you're looking for a fun around town bike, I'm an avid supporter of supermotos, light, nimble, easy to work on and fairly inexpensive. A BRAND new Husqvarna 701SM will set you back $12k, and that sumbeech is a LOT of bike (74hp and only like 320lb). Supermotos litter the classifieds for less than $8k, many are less than $6k

Hayabusa FTW! I had an 05 that was built pretty good. Put down almost 200hp on the dyno and ran the quarter in 9.5secs. Not with me riding though, I can't launch worth a damn. Sadly that bike found a new home when we built our house. Wife wanted landscaping and a sprinkler system when we moved in so I took one for the team. Been planning on getting another bike but with new kids and the business going like it is, I just don't have time to ride. I really miss riding.

At least you had it prior so you stand a chance of another. I always tell guys "if you didn't have a bike before y'all got together, you're chances are slim of getting a bike WHILE you're together"

I feel your pain. I sold mine a year ago next week. It hurt my back to ride it for more than 20 minutes anymore, and I couldn't handle the thought of watching it deteriorate in the garage. The Road Glide is far more comfortable.

Well I’m 6’4 so I can’t handle a “ small bike “. Is the supermoto tall?

Yea, it's a dirt bike with sport bike tires. I'm 6'3 and can barely flat foot both feet on my buddy's Husky 501. The way my 650 is set up, it COULD stand a little taller but doesn't NEED it, it was more comfortable once I raised the bars and lowered the pegs to open up the "caulkpit" a bit more.

Next to my brother's stock KTM 500



This was before I did the bars and pegs.



Suspension, lean angle, weight, and repairs of a dirt bike (I can completely change the color with brand new plastics for about $250), with the traction of a sport bike. Can run through the curves and twisties faster than a sport bike, just don't try to hang with them on the straights.



But who needs to drag knee when you can drag shifter? Lol
