Searching the rules, adventure biking. Surely a Harley qualifies.  :peepwall:

Lovely bike.

Beautiful bike. It's your money to do what you want with. Those that say otherwise are jealous.

I'm not a fan of Harley but a bike that beautiful is enough to make me reconsider. Congrats on the purchase - many happy miles  :thumleft:

Some folks just plain love Harley, and some folks just plain don't.

Some Harley's don't cut it with looks (In my opinion), while others exude beauty. Yours does.

Deep down I reckon more folks would love to own one like this, but can't really afford it.

Congrats on your purchase. An eyecatcher for sure.
Never hesitate to take that ride. Ride safe, ride often and ride far. The soul demands it.

Baie geluk Kobus.  Ek het ook darem self na die een al gekyk en 'n hele paar van die HD's al gevat vir 'n spin, en ek moet se van hulle almal, hanteer die een vir my die beste.  Nog 'n lekker ding is die feit dat die panniers standaard is saam die bike en kan ook afgehaal word as jy dit nie gebruik nie.

Op pad huis toe, toe stop ek by KTM, en raak verlief op die 1290SAR :ricky:  :pot:

Don't feel guilty, Harley has cache and mystique that other brands will never acquire and Harley was adventure biking 20-50 years before other brands mfg'd their first bike.

There's no doubt they're expensive, but the superior craftsmanship, paint quality, and metal instead of plastic costs more to produce.

Plus, as any HD rider can tell ya, Harley riders get more pussy.

That bike is in any case so fat and low to the ground I doubt it makes a difference to the CoG if you stand or not

"Cache".....a hiding place [for things you are ashamed of?]

Mystique......will I reach home?  Will it wobble and throw me off?  Will I ever get it sold again?
