Gee, from all these replys, you'd think he didn't give any examples of what he was considering... buddy, if you like the sportier side of things, I'd say Triumph, even though a orange Thunderbird Sport would give you all the sports you want all while looking way better than a cruiser. How's that for vauge?

How about the new K Vulcan 1600? Looks like a pretty nice ride for the money. If you want a great bike that holds it's value that's easy. www.cycletrader.com find yourself 2-3 yr old "rice burner" you like and ride ride ride. If I did not go through tires so quick, I could ride almost free by finding that good deal, ride a couple yrs., resale, then get another bike. Repeat, repeat, repeat. A new to me bike every couple yrs.

Come on, the GS is the couch of the BMW realm. Great on the knees and will handle anything you throw at it short of anything involving launching it airborne (love that GS comercial where the guy "washes" his by jumping it into a puddle. That thing falls like a stone, sanity optional is correct).

Re: Do I really need to say this?
 
Sadly the weather is cruel to me. I was planning on riding a rented Geezer-glide around New England this weekend but the forecast is for non-stop thunderstorms.



So the rental is off and I'm sitting in the Hilton in NYC. I think I'll hit Hogs and Heifers tonight and drink beer and pretend I'm a biker.

T-Bird Sport? Oh yeah! Have not ridden one yet but it looks like it could be the tits!

Gezuzz Buzz, you let a little thunderstorm spoil your riding? Musta been in southern Cali too long!



I was bicycling in a huge thunderstorm yesterday -- got soaked to the bone and damn near blown off the road (at one point I was in nearly my lowest gear going downhill, but into the wind). But then,nobody ever accused me of having good sense!



Hope you enjoy your trip, in spite of no riding.

How about a KTM Adventure (I think that is what it is called) -- the new V-Twin adventure touring bike. Should have plenty of room for those old knees and a nice upright position.

More versatile than you might think
 
You'd be surprised what you can do on a FLHTCU. I rode an Electra Glide Ultra to the Arctic Ocean, including 900 miles of gravel roads. Two-wheel drifts at 70 mph on a sweeping gravel turn can be pretty fun--as long as there's no tractor trailer coming the other way...

Yes I am a big sissy. Actually, I look at these optional riding trips as something I only do if the weather is great.



For example, when I'm riding to Milwaukee in August, I won't pull over rain or shine (maybe for a tornado!).



I'm kind of bummed about the weather. I've been to 47 states and New Hampshire and Maine were two that I needed to help complete the list (New Mexico being the other).



There is no way I will rent a car and visit so I'll have to come back again.
