    NEVER CONFUSE GETTING LUCKY WITH GOOD TACTICS (unless you are at the bar)

    I'm not in the business of Losing

    If/when I think of bikes that fit the "gentleman killer" persona the list gets really short...
    It would have to be quick, nimble, reliable and mean. Not a 2 wheeled couch, a meth cookers wet dream or a bike for the gender confused hipsters.
    Be alert, stand firm in the faith, act like a man, be strong. Your every action must be done with love.

    100% agreed Brent. There IS a learning curve when first starting, just like any other skill.

I also had a bike that was a bit worn--not entirely a beater--that was a lot more fun, because I was willing to risk it.
    I get what youíre saying bro and you're absolutely right.

    I love Harleys by the way. I just don’t want to pay the premium for them.

    But number one, and this goes for bikes, guns, whisky, everything...buy what you want, no matter what anyone else says.

    If I didn’t have other priorities, I would own a small squadron of bikes. They are like guns, you always want one more.

    I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

    YES! There’s the master key to this whole thing right there. Doesn’t matter what anyone wants you to have. What matters is the one that’s right for you.

    Default Current Ride

    BTW,

    This is my current ride. Definitely not for beginners, but a great hwy touring bike. Heavy weight is an advantage when dealing with high side winds or big rigs on the open road. Just ride through west Texas with 50 mph gusts will make a believer out of you. That used to pucker my butt when riding my BMW R1200RT, but my Harley Roadglide Ultra handles that with ease. Not really a bang around town bike, but a great open road cycle. I have full wireless intercom to listen to tunes or turn directions from my gps. If you are a single rider, maybe not for you, but my wife really enjoys the passenger accommodations on this bike. We've done several tours together and honestly get along much better than we ever have riding cooped up in a car or truck.

    I could see you on an Indian Scout Bobber, flat black.

    I could also see you enjoying a Ducati Monster, a little more sophisticated, or perhaps a BMW NineT, modern take on a retro look.

    All have attitude, but are a little off-beat and more rare than a Harley.
