My local Honda dealer sealed the fate of the Deauville at least in this market. Showroom features a Goldwing marked "His" with the Deauville pathetically, "Hers".

That is a Dumb Move.......

I'm sure that even Dr. Phil would give one of his signature "Whaddayou Thinkin" statements.

Or, God forbid, a Gladius.
If Suzuki were to put the Vee powerplant in a Gladius, I'd buy one of them tonight!

So in Texas these days, smaller is better? I'll have to inform the transplants up here - if I can get a word in edge-wise.

I was jokinbg on advrider that as far as I'm concerned, it should be called Commrider.com - for commuter. Because that's a lot of the mileage of a lot of the bikes. For me, it's at least half if not two thirds.
