Decent? Dude - snap that up. The sidecar alone is easily 5K....that setup for 10 is a gift.

Another excellent choice, and you might find the K a bit more to your liking when you take the sidecar off.

I don't think there is a minimum age - they've just got to be able to reach the pegs with BOTH feet and have to wear a helmet.

ROFL!

I didn't know it changed. My little monster was already riding in 09, and over 5 so I didn't care to look.

I've been thinking of the side hack too - just so the whole fambly could go on a motorcycle trip - problem there is, the girls would fight over who HAD to sit in the sidecar...

If you are serious, I would go this route. of a deal. I like these and the Triumph Rocket III's even without a sidecar. I think this really looks nice and price wise I would agree, the rig is worth 5K alone.

Duuuuuuuude. That is the freakin classy way to go if you're going to do a cruiser! Whitewalls, huge seat...like 12million lights and doohickeys. LEGIT way to get around...I'd do it in a heartbeat!

That Valkyrie is a steal. How many miles on the clock? Can't be that many. Looks like yet another hangar queen.
