DUDE if you get that kind of a tax return "you over estimate your tax" you REALLY need to adjust it.

letting the goverment hold and collect the interest off it, is NUTS when you can keep it yourself as soon as you get your payroll check.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

VROD's and Street ROD's are pretty cool cruisers.

I have rented both several times.

Each time I return one the rear tire has considerably less tread left.

I have too many bikes in my garage already!

If I could sell every bike in my garage, and even if I got top dollar I wouldn't be able to by ONE VROD!!!

I have a line on a old sporty that needs some TLC for 1500 bucks though. A cruiser is never out of the question. Just haven't owned one yet.

I'm still happy with the 929 and have no time for long rides.

Invest.

Something a little more practical eh?

I've always liked those BMW R1100S bikes. Same bike they road race in the Boxer cup. Great Highway machine too, that you can ride all day without your arms and legs getting cramped and your ass turning Purple

cruiser/sport tourer/touring bike

all the same family, in that its not a full blown sportbike.


whats practical? its only what your planing to do with it and what it has to spare.

those are my thoughts.

Not that he could do that, that money would be buring a huge ass hole in his pocket

I think before I buy a cruiser I would buy a sport tourer or a nice dualsport. I like to go up to Wisconsin and ride and there are alot of places I won't take my bike because of road conditions plus there are alot of trails that you could ride a dual sport on. I'll save the cruiser for the midlife crisis.

That is SO WEIRD that you'd post this thread because just today, for the first time in months, I began thinking about my Sportster (yeah, I know, not MUCH of a cruiser) and began searching for the contact info of the guy I sold it to -- he said I could call him in a year or so when he was done using it to get back into riding.

It was my first bike.
