    Hey all.

    I've never been a big motorcycle guy but since moving to south Texas and seeing them all the time I started thinking more about maybe getting one next year sometime.

    Naturally the first brand I checked out was HARLEY. Boy they make some beautiful bikes. Who wouldn't love a Heritage Softail or a Fat Boy? Heck I'd take any of them.

    I checked out the websites of all the BIG names and all of them make good looking bikes, but the only other models I really liked were from Victory. Their Cruisers are beautiful, especially the Boulevard.

    So that's what my picks are. What's yours? If you were going to get a new motorcycle what would it be? If you have one now how about posting pics?

    One other cycle that I have always liked was the BMW R1200C. What a sweet looking cycle. One of my friends back home used to have a maroon one.

    Lets see your picks.....

    I have always liked the Harley Fat Bob in Matte black. That will be my next bike if I ever sell my current one. I am not a fan of the Sportser series, a little too small looking.

    I recently sold my play car and can swing a new Ducati Panigale S straight across but simply can't justify that kind of cash for a motorcycle. The new Triumph Trophy 12 is looking mighty attractive, though. HH

    Confederate Hellcat is my dream bike. Not likely to ever get it so I'm settling for a CVO Road Glide.

    This is the bike I learned on. It's a 2001 Suzuki Marauder 800. I bought it January of 2008 and still have it until I sell it sometime this spring hopefully. It was a reliable ride and all I ever did was put gas in it and change the oil. Chain and sprockets and tires when needed. It was good to learn on but not my dream bike.

    This is my new 2012 klr650 I just bought in September. IT is a great ride and does well on road and off road. Being a 650 it can get up to about 95 but that's a little rough, but it can ride 70-80 all day.

    I love this bike! It's a lot of fun and the bike of my dreams for right now.

    Or I would go a few years old and pick up a rare cruiser... The 2004 Honda Valkyrie Rune.

    I keep selling ZX14's, with the intention of trying something else. I seem to keep buying ZX14's though. Maybe I'm trying to tell myself something.:supergrin: Eric
