Would be more "dashing" without a helmet!

It would have but like I mentioned earlier, the crack on the back of the head would have been much more painful. grin Seriously though, I wonder if the Mrs. was on board with that or did the road just completely surprise the rider? The perfectly positioned camera tells me it was set up. dontknow

I have my local dealer looking for a white DCT Tour. I will be trading my 2013 HD Electra Glide Classic. I was very impressed after looking at it closely, sitting on it and starting it. Raining today, so no test rides, but I will be going back later this week to ride the demo bike when It is dry. This will be my 2-up bike, the RT will still be staying in the stable for solo and commuting duty.

I can't wait to take delivery!

Went to Manchester Honda today in Manchester, CT so I could see this bike in person. Very nice looking motorcycle, I like it far more than previous iterations. Slimmed down and svelt, unllike any Gold Wing I've ever seen. Can't wait to ride one.

Next trip is to Wagner BMW/Ducati in Worcester, MA to see the V4 Panagale. Now that bike gets my heart beating!

I looked them over pretty good at the Chicago Motorcycle show. I've *never* been even slightly attracted to Goldwings, but this ain't your Daddy's Goldwing.

Fairly impressive bike. I'd certainly consider it.. alot of features and I've always felt that Japanese bikes have better reliability. I've owned at least 5 Honda's and 2 beemers. The Honda's have *never* stranded me (My R1200RT did... just sayin....)

But I'm not in the market yet.. Maybe next year.
