Well, we finally broke down and bought a new Harley-Davidson.
It's a black 2015 1200 Sportster Forty-Eight.
Rocket Harley-Davidson was pretty easy to deal with and overall it was a pleasurable buying experience.
The Forty-Eight makes a good garage mate to our Star 1300 Deluxe.
One thing about the Harley, after an hour in the saddle you know you've been riding a motorcycle...my back...my back!!!
However, with its HUGE 2.1 gallon fuel tank, chances to take a stretch come pretty often.

Thanks for the kind words about the 48.
It rides better than it looks like it would. The rear shocks only have about 1 1/2" of travel, but those big tires take up some of the bumps in the road.
It's no GoldWing, but it's not too bad for "local" work.
