Not all 2018+ bikes are DCT (automatic), some are still the good ol' "stick-shift".
I was at a dealer a while back looking at the new ones. Hell, my first house didn't cost that much! I love my '07 1800, and can do A LOT of upgrades/maintenance and enjoy it for a LONG time for the prices I was seeing. For me I just can't justify that kind of money. I am happy for those who can and do get them; that's what drives progress!

Livin' that '15 F6B life......

A buddy of mine has an F6B and loves it. He has had a few Wings and says he likes the F6B better. Nice to see that wonderful North Carolina destination you were at! I love to ride in that area.

Great looking ride! Nearly bought one just like it myself; wish I had. Just don't have a place to store two bikes. Always wanted a Yamaha Venture Royale 1200 too.

2008 GL1800 HPNA in Challenger Brown Metallic

I just ran across this post again, and realized that I voted in the poll but did not brag about my bike. I have a 2008 GL1800 HPNA in "Challenger Brown Metallic" nicknamed "The Beast" I purchased from the 2nd owner (he had it a little over a year and 1200 miles) in 2018 with 33,826 on the clock. The bike was so well taken care of with low mileage I gave him his full asking price. Kelly Blue Book said that bike should be expected to have 45,000 miles on it and it was priced right at $10,500. It took me a 3 months to actually test ride it and then buy it after I first saw it because I was waiting for money from Dad's estate. Lucky for me all the schmuck tire kickers weren't serious buyers. One guy drove all the way down from the Albany area to check it out and then said he didn't have the money. It now has 46,243 and I ride the hell out of it (well for me anyway). Last bike I had I bought new and sold after 7 riding seasons with only 9,300 miles on it. That was certainly a different time. Whether a solo 1/2 hour after work ride, a full day group cruise, large benefit bike event, mission with the Patriot Guard (CT, MA, & RI) , or a casual ride with the wife for food or ice cream the miles rack up.
