Trust me that is something I'd love to do;a Marine friend at work rode to Sturgis and did a complete loop of Texas then to Florida..he took 2 weeks to do it though

I have been giving some thought to changing out my ride.  I have been looking real hard at a FatBoy with detachable windshield, engine guards, and throw over bags with a trailer hitch.   Just can't swing it at this time. 

I to need a new truck and can't swing that either.

I like the look, but the Harley's are to small for me. I always feel cramped on them.

Specking of skate;while my Dad and I were doing the PA. Route6 ride we ran across this guy on one of those Can-Ams.Never got to see one close up and he was excited to give us the sales pitch.He was 82 and said he still loved to ride but his goldwing was just getting to cumbersome for him and his wife.His model it had the 5000.00 towing package ran him 42k! It was a 6-speed with Rotax motor the only thing he didn't care for was power steering.Thing was pretty cool even if its a rich mans toy

Heh well the local dealer here can kiss by ass! Yesterday I bagan my 7 days off that leads into vacation where next week I'll be archery hunting in the mountains + grouse hunting,but anyways I decided I need a new helmet since its been pretty chilly like 38 in the morning.So while at the stealer shipI see this really nice Yamaha royal-star not set up as a full dresser but everything I wanted.Salesman says let me have our maintence guy appraise yours then we can work out something we will both be happy with.Bastards came back with a 2000.00 offer saying they have to change my exhaust (hard chrome) so they have better access to oil filter then said I need new tires bwaaaaaaaaaaaaa in which I said fucker they still have the titties on them as I just bought the bike in May and watched them put those Dunlops on it..give me my keys because your defined as a stealership
