I've done it before and will do it again. I bought a FXR after my wife and I had a couple of kids. Needed to slow down and enjoy the ride a bit more. Then I got a Fatboy because I couldn't get the image out of my head of the '90 model in silver with yellow spark-plug wires.

Then I realized I had a $17,000 bike that didn't allow me to enjoy the roads I loved to ride on the weekends. So I put a VFR and a DR650 in the garage and the Fatboy sat until sold.

Now I'm thinking, do I pick up a police RK or a Street Bob. I'd really like to tour on the road king for a while.

Get a King and we'll do a NoCal SoCal tour.

Well you are in the GPTB...so this doesn't surprise me.. Is it true if you have an Harley you become part of the inner circle? i..e you get to use Buz's hot tub.

Is the oil filter removal straight forward on those Roadkings?

Is there room for purple neon running lights?

conchos are really more suited to an oil filter.



the purple neon doesn't like the heat.

I've never seen any comment on the ABS on the police rk. Any info if it works?



My buddy is still trying to unload that spotless rk classic with no luck. $24,000 and 1600 miles and can't get $15.5

I'll probably get a couple more years out of my KLR. Its all I need really. A fine bike except for the emergency brakes. At my age, though, its best not to put off new acquisitions too long. I may keep the KLR and just add a supermoto to the stable. The KTM 950 SM seems like more than would be necessary. No wind protection so you can't make use of its top speed even if so inclined. Better to shave off a hundred pounds and go with a 600 class SM imo.
