Oh, yeah, and Ken - I'm not gonna bust your balls because it's not electric.

I'm gonna bust your balls because it's just as much a retro, old farts' bike as anything in the Harley line-up.

Welcome to the Dark Side!

Welcome to the Dark Side!
I'm thrilled to be here! Not only am I buying a retro old-fart bike, but this article fits me to a "T" (aside from the fact that I'm not 60-something yet...still a youthful and dynamic 50ish).

I was decidedly "meh" on the CB at first, but a few days ago I was flipping through a motorcycle mag at work, and the damn thing started growing on me.

Who was the MOron who came up with the terrific phrase "event bike" to describe bikes you can't just up 'n' go on? I bet you'll ride that CeeBer a lot more than the Strom. Very good choice, Ken. I predict you'll be a very happy camper. Too bad you're 1500 miles away. We could go on a Harley/Honda ride and scandalize the bluenoses who frown on such unnatural co-mingling.

Meet in the middle and it's only 750 miles each, that's doable, oh and congrates on the new bike Ken, good choice! You'll need a flannel shirt, Levi jacket and some Dingo Harness boots to complete the look now along with your gold mettalflake 3/4 lid..

Actually I plan to be in the NC mountains in May for the annual VStrom gathering. They say they won't disown me if I show up on a Honda.

Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge near Deals Gap and Cherohala Skyway

That's about in the middle, isn't it? The event is 5/15 to 5/19. C'mon down, we'll put up a cot in the cabin for ya.

I will take credit for the "event bike" thought

Good point too - the new CB looks to be a jump on it and go kind of bike. Funny how that is. Bikes that are large or super sporty are "event bikes". Bikes like the CB, dual sports of any kind, Triumph Bonnies, are jump on and go kinda bikes.

Thing I like about CB type bikes, they are jump on it and go, but there is nothing really to stop the rider from just going and going!
