Thinking of buying a Bike

http://www.harley-davidson.com/en_AU...tml#/c/gallery

I'm getting the urge to buy a bike again. Never thought of a Harley before but I'm getting a little pudgy for the Jap bikes these days.

Need to bring a support car while riding you never know when those things might break down!

Not to mention they are not water proof!

I had a duc monster before, absolutely loved it... not a real bike person at heart hence not riding again but if I ever were to get back I'd look at another monster or a triumph street triple, something like that...

Thanks but same problem as with the Ducati, I am a bit old (read soft) for the racer bikes. I'm more in line for the loud lounge style bike

I thought you wore the pants in your house! Sounds like you might have misunderstood pants for panties hehehehehe.

Grow some balls and get one, you only live once.
