    Okay, I am not a Harley guy, but I have to say that is a pretty sweet looking ride. Well done sir, helping the economy and yourself at the same time!

    So bike guys, if you're poor, and have no experience with a bike, but want to get started, and don't have aspisations of warp speed, you're 6'1" and 240, what is the starter bike?

    Now see, Orangello is being helpful, and you're being mean spirited, as though I've somehow given you problems on this forum at one time or another.

    I almost typed that with a straight face.

    I looked at the Glides a few years ago, but they feel like Sportsters with big tanks to me. I am larger than the average bear so a Heritage or Road King fit decently and don't make me look like I'm riding a clown bike.

    Hell I rode a Gold Wing for work a few years back and people thought it ws some sort of new Silver Wing until they saw it with me dismounted.

    A 750 is bare minimum...but a Nighthawk? Eeek! if you must go Honda (cheaply) go Shadow. If you want a nice bike, go Valkyrie. All my bikes have been Yamahas Vulcans and Maxima. Never had a problem...but 750 will get old fast. Start at 1100. You'll eventually be as cool as your bike.

    I'm just trying not to get too much bike. I know lots of yunguns that have no experience, but get the largest, fastest thing out, can't handle it, and end up dumping a multi thousand dollar bike.

    Yes, count on dumping it. It's a given. It will happen when you think you got it all down.

    Nice lookin bike. I wouldn't mind having a V-rod myself.

    I can't count how many fenders and turn signals I have broken on all of my bikes. LOL The best bike I ever owned was a Suzuki TA50 moped yes i said it I had a moped I was like 7 or 8 at the time. That thing took 4 long hard years of mud boggin and jumps. Untill the day I jumped it a little to high and broke the rear axle and sent my goofy lookin azz over the handel bars. Then to top it off I got hit in the face by the rear tire as it came at me at something like 20 mph. Boy that hurt like heck.

    I want a supermoto bike. I like the looks and the fact that I can go like heck on or off road.
