Well, my tell is a little different. My little honey of 43 years rides her own 2004 VTX1300S. She is actually a better rider than me. I just bought my 2015 Wing about 2 weeks ago. Keeping the 2005 Harley Electroglyde to take to Texas. We already have a 2005 1100 Yamaha over there we bought from a good friend last year. This is getting a little crazy but our logic is sound-----I think. Add in the Honda Foreman and the Kubota ATV for the farm and I think we have enough. At this point, none are for sale. However, with all the other engines I have to maintain it is getting a little tedious. I will do the 4000 on the Wing tomorrow and I am through for a while. Praise the Lord!!!!

I recently got back into riding two months ago, after being away from it for eight years. Two months ago, my wife asked if Iíd rather buy a boat or a motorcycle. I thought I could get a lot more good out of a motorcycle, and said so. She said for me to get a newer one so I wouldnít need to fix it up. The next day I bought a 2012 Goldwing. It was delivered 10 days later, and I was a happy guy.
Yesterday, she noticed that I was looking at motorcycles on eBay, specifically VTX1800s. She asked if I was shopping again, and I told her one of these would be different than my Goldwing, and she told me to just go ahead and buy one, so I did. Iíve still got to arrange shipment, but Iím ecstatic.

My 2001 GL1800 was run over by a woman and the tow truck driver dropped it off his truck. This was in Oct 2004. So, I bought a 2006 VTX1300 and loved it. Was contemplating putting an auto style cruise control on it and was really into that bike. Then my son-in-law came home with a 2008 Harley Sportster and that bike had more get up and go and that got me to thinking about a Sportster, so I bought a new 2012 and sold the VTX. But that sportster was a vibrator on wheels and on the long haul was tiring. So, a couple years later a friend went overseas and left me his GL1800 which I rode a few time but didn't want to take chances with his great bike, so I bought another Harley Dyna Low Rider, 103 eng. (1680cc), great bike but I totaled it last summer. But loving that GL just got me to shopping around for my own while I was still on crutches and in therapy learning to walk all over again. My 2005 is just great but, I still would like to have that VTX back. Having two bikes in the garage is an endeavor to dream about.

It's not the destination, but the getting there.
