Traded Daisy in

So my wife and I have been talking for weeks. She is more comfortable on 3 wheels. She has a Can Am Ryker. That is not a touring bike by any stretch of the imagination. So we traded in her Harley Fatboy and my Venture TC on a new Can Am RT Limited. It is a fun ride, but I prefer 2 wheels. I kept my HD Street Glide. With nothing but a new seat it is actually more comfortable of a ride than the Yamaha ever was. Not as many toys on it though.. lol. I will have another Yammy.. I am seriously considering a FJ.. I might trade the Honda NC750 for one.

Congrats on the new family member. I hope you stick around though. There are a few of us who've moved on from our Yammies but still hang out here. It's just that kind of a place.

I still ride 2 wheels. I am not giving them up until I HAVE to. As far as waving I am wondering how many on 2 wheels will wave.. LOL

That's good looking!!! Very aggressive styling. Definitely no lane splitting.
