Holy ****...I know you've seen a million of 'em, BUT

You haven't seen this one! This one is MINE!

This is my 9th motorcycle, and if the 85 mile ride home from the dealership was any indication - it is sure to be my favorite. It was late when I got back to Seattle, and I have to work early in the morning, but I still didn't want to stop riding. I wish I was riding it now. This has never happened to me before. I haven't had a bike I wanted to be on this badly in 20 years.

I have only lived in Seattle since 2012. I haven't owned a motorcycle since before I left Oklahoma. I have a lot of exploring to do, and with my wife deciding she wants a divorce, plenty of time to do it.

What a great time to be me with a Glee. Happy early birthday to me. Sorry for that...one celebratory rum n' diet coke too man-yyyyy?

Congrats on the joy you'll get from that really great choice in bike. Aren't they just the best all rounder bike going. This is the first bike I've fitted a top-box to -- and that makes such a lot of sense you'll find. I've done a great tour of some thousands of klms - and despite the sometime trying weather - the best long trip I've had on a bike. Great choice

You know that's a great thing about motorbikes. When life gets a little rough or unpleasant they are always there for you.

Dang Sparky....I did it all wrong. When I got my big "D" I had to sell my bike along with my house and all of my pride. Glad to see someone put a better spin on it with new wheels...congrats!

You might should have waited until after the divorce to get the bike. Your X might end up with it with you making the payments.
