I hear you on the ugly thing.. I was talking myself into buying a BMW GSA until I saw one close up - that is one ugly bike.. Why don't any of the big companies make a motorcycle shaped like a motorcycle anymore? I have the Bullet, and an Ural that look like they should..
Sorry, that is an ugly bike. I checked. My wife says I'm right.
Thanks to Will for this topic.I've been considering a Bullet Classic or Electra and, after finally taking a trip last weekend to the dealer in Oakdale, NY (very helpful!), am absolutely positive that the Classic is for me.The only item of concern to me after reading the responses to Will's post is keeping the bike outdoors. I live in a Brooklyn apartment with no garage, so the bike will have to live outside.I do have access to a garage (out of state) for Winter storage. But are there any covers particularly good at protecting from the elements and rust? Are there any recommended treatments that protect the bike without harming its appearance? Any experiences to share from NYC metro area riders?If worse comes to worse I'd settle for a used F650 (same dimensions as the R12GS, actually, and fairly comfy for a 6' guy like me), but nothing moves me like the Bullet. Photos don't do it justice.
Are tingling hands common after only 60 miles? Jerry
