Any bike, what's your choice

I've the chance to ride any bike I want from San Antonio to Newport News, VA. in January. If you had that opportunity, what bike would you pick. Freeway and or secondary roads all the way. I may go coastal all the way there, including down the Fl coast to Key West and up. So, long, highway ride.

What bike would you ride.

Gold Wing 1800...that's what I wanted when I came across my current V star. Maybe in a few years, I'll break down a get one.

57 Chevy with the heater on high? I would ride whatever I(or you) got. I would ride my Silverado (1100) and be one happy dude. There again, you could get a ton of answers, everyone has their ideas that suit their beliefs and wants best. Have a good ride

Ride Safe, Live Long

Good answer but I'd probably go a bit lighter/sportier with a Connie, FJR, Sprint GT, etc.

I'd look more at handling, I like my 02-650 Classic, it looks GOOD, rides good enough for anything that I intend to do, but I have had a lot of bikes that handled better, I've always liked the handling of a Triumph.

2 bikes come to mind. First would be a VMAX, I always wanted to try one out to see if it is as fast as every one says. Next would be one of the custom built bikes that Orange County Chopper builds. I watch there show on tv and think some of there bikes are awsome but would they be comfortable on a long ride?

02 Vstar 1100 classic
Samson Warloard Ripsaws
chubby pod kit/maxair pms screws
barons ork
kuryakyn isso grips
breakaway cruise cont.
driver backrest
barons DT risers
barons tackometer
oem passing lights
crome visors on all lights & signals
drag highway pegs
viking studded bags
sissy bar with rack
studded front and rear seats
studded gas tank bib with pouch
clocks for bikes- stem mount
Ram mount& hard wire for GARMIN GPS
Memphis Shades Batwing Fairing
