    Heck' I bought my Goldwing 3 weeks ago. My wife and I looked at it and went home for a couple of hours. Then she said " Your not getting any younger, I think you should buy it!"

    Man, do I ever miss my street bikes.

    Had a Suzuki GS1000, a Yamaha 650 Hertage Special and a Triumph 650 hardtail chopper with a springer front end that just streched out forever.

    Damn near got killed by some dumb-f**k a-h*le on the A/C Expressway who came off the on ramp at 70 in his Honda and never even looked in his mirror. If the trucker I was forced to cut off to get out of the way wasn't one hell of a driver, me and the Ex-Wife would've been grease spots for the Troopers to scrape into ziplock baggies.

    That was the last of many close calls that summer. Sold all three bikes within the next month and went dirt.

    Still have the Honda TRX-250, but all my buddies are far to married to come out and ride anymore, so it mostly just sits.

    Gotta admit though, the '08 Softtails are lookin real sharp, I might just have to jump in again.

    1994 Ducati M-900 "Monster"
    The Italians dubbed it IL Monstro.
    The Ducati 914 is the best handling bike I've ever driven.

    My last bike. It was a customized '59 Triumph Bonneville. That's my uncle on it. I had to check and re-tighten everything each time I rode it.

    I owned a kawasaki kz 400 one summer. I bought it for $250 with a busted oil pan, (the guy dropped it on the shifter). I fixed it with jb weld and sheet aluminum and rode it all summer. I want one of these now.

    my street bike was a kz 750, that sucker was fast in its day.

    a-holes in cars were the reasons for getting rid of it.

    that and the fact that the guys i was riding with were getting kind of crazy.
    145mph down I-295 was a reality check for me...

    keep the m/c license current in case the need comes up again, wife would probably leave my @ss if i did it though.

    Chillbilly I had a Ducati 250 dirt bike, back when I was 16. I used to even race. Flat track a semi sand. There are a lot of reasons to die. Going 145mph is not one of those. I will pray for you boys.

    Just don't be like that guy in a video someone posted last year.
    Guy had a new Goldwing with all the trimmings, but seemed ummm.....inexperienced.
    He crashed it HARD into parked cars in the parking lot in the first 2 seconds of his first ride on it, lol.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
