This was recent so it couldn't be the same bike then.

Most people don't know that skittish is the proper spelling for "jittery". Don't believe me... Look it up.

I don't see the appeal of cruisers. Purely looks wise.

The thing is all my buddies ride Harley's. I mean I guess it doesn't really matter as long as ya ride. My last bike was a aprilia sxv450 supermoto it was a great bike but high maintenance. The 690 smc is similar but totally more practical than the ape. Use wise I'd probably just use it on weekends and occasionally ride it to work on Fridays to beat the traffic on the way home

This is what I learned about buying a Harley: It makes absolutely no sense. However, once you have decided you want one nothing else will fill that want.

That's exactly it. Luckily harleys are pretty stout bikes, and are fairly trouble free these days. I treat my 07 very poorly and it has given me absolutely no reason to regret buying it. Ride wise, you don't hear anyone calling a hyabusa a "road sofa." Cruisers are perfect for people that just want to ride easy and enjoy themselves.

In my garage I currently have an 2005 Yamaha XT225, 2005 Honda 919 Hornet, and a 2007 Superglide. Granted the Harley is the newest to me and that flavors my opinion to some extent but it is the most enjoyable to ride.

So that way I can really handle it much better than just holding on for the ride...
Well, hopefully this thread will still be around then, I will probably be coming to you all to convince me not to buy a 600. Hopefully I won't lack the common sense I have now...
I raced for three seasons in the middle class division. I learned hot to drift a sport bike riding enduro.
If you have access to dirt?, you should consider a small displacement dirt bike to learn with.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

This! Some nights I used to get on my bike and just ride. Just me and the road. Clear my head and get some "ME" time. Weather has been so awesome lately I wish I had a bike just so I could hit the road again. Just waste a tank of gas riding with no where to go and all night to get there.
