We met at a poker run back in the day and it just took awhile to bring her around.

I just bought a new 2019 Road King last week, now has 1000 miles on it. The Milwaukee 8 107 is great. Now I have two great bikes to ride. (still have my 2015 T100, but my 2018 Goldwing Tour is gone)

A well-balanced, rounded-out man has both a Harley and a Triumph. A Renaissance man has several of both.........and maybe a Ducati as well....or even a new Indian.......

I have 2 Triumphs and a 2015 Road King. I just got back from a Road Trip renting a 2019 Road King and it really is an awesome machine the new 8 is so much smother than the 103, if it was water cooled I think it would be a match for the T-Bird!

I have an air cooled Ducati Monster, a Yamaha FZ6, and a Sprint ST. So, I have a two, three, and four cylinder motorcycle. Talk about balance in the universe. No need for anything from the Motor Company.

I had a 2014 Indian Vintage and a 2015 Indian Chieftain. My wife gets mad if I have more than two bikes. Never had a Ducati, or a BMW, but did have a 2013 Moto Guzzi V7.

Guzzis are nice, especially the ones from the 80s to early 90s, especially the Daytona 1000!

My old Guzzi Daytona is one bike that I don't miss
I instantly put on the race kit and it just felt like "this is the bike that is going to kill me" so off it went.
Lots of driveline snatch with the 2 U-joints, really light throttle action and the brakes could be adjusted to flip it over with one finger.
