"How much for the machine, please?" is the translation from my German-heritage brain.
 :D

Ya know, I really do find it interesting to see how often people sell all kinds of other bigger and more expensive motorbikes, and keep their Bullets.
I think that really says something about how nice Bullets are.

My 99 is going in the grave with me. It's my all-time favorite motorcycle.
I still want a highway gobbler though. Might downsize quite a bit though.
For what I sold the HD for I can get a Moto Guzzi V7 Classic or maybe a Triumph T100 and still have enough for maybe a AVL too.
Besides the way I've taken so much grief riding that HD to RE rally's that I thought I'd make a sacrifice to the RE gods and deprive myself of it.

IIMHO the FL.s are among the best of the road going machines.
Tons of torque ,comfortable,stable with great brakes. With a center of gravity somewhere around your ankles you would be amazed at how easily you can to grind the jiffy stands hick tab in a tight left turn  ;D ;D ;D
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

REA #136

"TIMEX", the '06 Iron Barrel Military that takes me everywhere I want to go... and some places I shouldn't.

I also feel that the FL's are at the top of the pack when it comes to big heavy freeway machines.
It's the company I have the problem with. They sell things with flaws and brush it off knowing they have a loyal following that would buy it no matter what it was.
Dealers with cappuccino machines.
The outfit.
All turn offs.
Yup, I've been riding E Glides for the last 35 years and if they did business like CMW I just might be still be riding them.

Ever wonder why my clothes/towel/flipflops/pillow case/hat and everything else I can afford to pitch is in the fire pit on Sun. morning.
Gotta make room for a bottle of wine or 2 also. This vineyard near there makes this chardonel that's aged in the used oak barrels from the whiskey boys across the river.
To die for.

Here's the 99 packed up to go out there a couple of years ago.
I'll have the same bags on the G5. Tent/sleeping bag/ Thermarest and rain suit go on a luggage rack behind the seat. Lot of room in those bags.
