A motorcycle thread? Woohoo!
I rode a Harley for about a decade and went for a Rocket III when it came out. I've never looked back since. It's big enough for some serious touring and still quick enough to tear around town.
I broke it in with a non-highway ride from NJ to Oregon and back and have done some short runs since then. Most recently I rode from NJ down to Key West in October. The trip down was lazy, but I found myself in KW longer than expected because of FantasyFest (
Get There!!!), so the ride home was a bit hurried.
Made it from Key West back to Perth Amboy, NJ in 2 days.
I used to be brand-loyal. Now I look back and wonder what the heck was going through my head. It doesn't matter what people ride as long as they're out there for the experience.
