I've been satisfied with my 2005 Triumph America.

Nice cruiser, good gas mileage, decent pickup.

(And I get more people gathering around mine that the HD riders theirs when we stop for gas)

That is pure style, canebrake. Yes, they ride like a jackhammer, but there's nothing quite like an old Harley to just make you feel good about yourself.

Best Bike for what?
I'm a bit of a Triumph nut. Great bikes, good value. They have something for everyone, with the exception of hard core dirt bikes.
Enduro? check.
Sport? Check.
Sport Touring? Check.
Naked Hooligan bike? Check.
Cruiser? Check.
Retro? Check.
I traded my 08 Bonneville T-100 for a 10 Thunderbird SE. Never any problems with either.
Worth a look regardless:

Back in the mid 70's when they first came out I had a Kawasaki Z1 and thought it was great.


I always wanted a BMW R100 but never got around to getting one.


Nowdays I would kind of like to try a Can-Am Spyder, they look like they could be a lot of fun.

I've had several makes during my life. Learned on a '74 Honda CB750. Started out on a Honda CB360. Went to Yamaha and had an 850 dresser for a long time. Went back to Honda and had a Shadow cruiser until I injured my back at work and sold it. I never thought about HD much until I took the motor officer course at work and got on board of our old FXRPs. I was hooked. I absolutely loved our Road Kings and the fuel injection really makes a difference in throttle response and performance. Good move when HD went to this. I'm currently bikeless at the moment, but if all goes well, I may be able to afford another by next year and it will be a Harley. I'll settle for a Sportster, but would love either a Heritage Softail or a Road King.

The '84 FXRT pictured in my avatar has 185,000 miles on it. It has a 96 CI engine built by Vern Otts at VMO and is a great ride. Nowadays, factory stock probably blows it away but I wouldn't trade it.
