Crotch Rocket VS. Harley

Real Estate Appraiser with Appraisal Express

Okay, So my husband is totaly into SPEED!  His first bike was a Honda F4 600.  He owned it for about 2 years and decided he need something a little bigger.  Now, with all the complaining I did about how uncomfortable it was, I thought a Harley would be in our future.  Nope, He bought a Busa!  Now granted this sucker is really fast, but not any more comfortable for me.  In May we went on our second ride benefitting Northern California's Special Olympics.  Talk about out of place.  Every bike on this ride was a Harley.  I absolutely love going on rides like this.  It is such a thrill to be riding in a pack!  A large pack!  After this ride, I told my husband I wouldn't go on any more until he traded the crotch rocket in for a Harley!  He has since put his bike up for sale on Craig's List!  So if anybody is interested please help a woman out! Here is a picture of the current Bike!

Welcome to AR Bikers!

Good Luck Elizabeth! Nothing like doing a ride for a charity huh? We have our Bikes and Blues With Mickey Jones For St Judes every April. Last April we netted over 35K! We had a couple CRs on the ride, but it was mostly regular street bikes about 75% American Made Harleys.

Hope you sell your bike and get a Harley soon, you will be a lot more comfortable.

Or if you want real comfort bypass the Harley altogether and go right for a Goldwing.

Thanks Dave, but my husband says that any bike that comes with a navigation, reverse and air conditioning is not really a bike!

Elizabeth, how is the bike selling going?  Any takers?  Any closer to the Harley?  My husband had a Katana 750 before his Harley.  I hated it, so I can relate!  Now we both have Harley's!

Cool bike just love my honda cruiser. Buy if you want the best of the best then you get the Goldwind and cruise like you are in the most expensive car there is....My husband loves his Harely and I think would never own anything else and he has had over 200 bikes in his life time, so he has tried them all. Good luck..The girls that ride those look totally uncomfortable. If they say they like it they are lying!! Craigs list is also a great tool.
