Triumph! Not a Harley!
Like that classic Schot of New York jacket.

They still sell them...

A cruise only lasts a few days... but a Harley lasts a lifetime.

Get the bike. Besides, certain cruises can be had pretty cheap (ex. inside cabin, last minute deals). I'm sure both you and the missus can get what they want out of this.

Cheers,
Lucky

"I sense a disturbance in the force." Got a good laugh as usual.

As Abraham Lincoln said, "It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues. "

Motorcycles in Doug's garage don't last a lifetime - he changes bikes more often than I change my underwear!

Dressing up is half the fun. Of course we could all ride naked, but that wouldn't be too safe.

That would make Doug a true expert on the subject I suppose now wouldn't it Erik. Either that or an underwear connoisseur.

Tinker, believe me, the Triumph Scrambler has crossed my mind more than once since the Gold Wing departed for it's new home in Canada.

Lucky, Erik is correct in that I do change bikes frequently but he may have told us all more than we need to know about his grooming habits.

Mrs. RC, I'm going to go visit bike shops tomorrow, something I don't get to do much living in this small town with only two small bike shops and one rip-off shop. Not sure if Debbie, A.K.A the Comely Passenger, will be going with me or not or if it will be safe for me to come home again if she doesn't go with me.

Road Captain, I've never ridden a bike naked but I won't say I've never been naked on a bike. There's a painful mental image for you!

Dave, I might be a connoisseur of bikes but certainly not underwear beyond my own preference for...well, let's just not go there.

Doug
