Your bike looks VERY COMFY...I bet it's a pleasure to ride. By the way, is that one of those famous "Illinois Mountains" in the background of your pic?

Nice bike. It is currently #2 on my "Wanted" list (Victory CC Tour first). Not having ABS and less storage (no trunk to store a helmet on the bike) are the main reasons…plus some shortcomings in the audio/tech system.

Tell us about the Flat 6…how is it compared to the twins? I am sure that taller windshield makes a big difference.

Current Ride: 2013 Honda F6B

Former Rides:
2004 VStar 1100 Classic
2008 VStar 1100 Silverado
1982 Suzuki GS650S

with the flat 6, i can be cruising at 80 when a tight spot comes up on the interstate, i just flick the throttle..... and i'm GONE !

i had a v-star 1100, the a h-d with 80ci evo, then an h-d ultraclassic with a 96ci..................hands down the f6B is the most fun you can have on two wheels (wearing clothes)

Thanks for the reply. Did you consider the full Gold Wing? If so / not, how come?

i considered the gL1800A, but it's top heavy, it's $5k to $6k more in cost....

the F6 (as we call the GL1800B) is lower, lighter, and way WAY cooler looking, lol
