Now Iím all asking like comfort and practicality , maintenance upkeep and also how much is the insurance on this
The wing is fast been 130+ on it. It wheelies with the throttle no clutch needed. Can't get a more comfortable functional bike. Insurance cheap. Maintenance (just oil changes) no other problems since 2008 other than blowing some speakers(my fault). And bumblebee is wrong I have had girls try to jump on my bike because they did the tunes so much.

I never said it's impossible to run into a stray that likes Hondas, but Harleys ARE chick magnets.

There's no doubt that the 'wings are among the best touring bikes. If I was gonna ride from here to Montana, a Goldwing would be high on the list.


But chicks dig Harleys.

You could always get your wife a "Harley Special Edition 100th Anniversary" baseball bat to fight them off of you.

I'm sure Harley will sell you a bat like that...

Shockingly, I discovered that Harley T-shirts are CHEAP compared to Ducati T-shirts!
No ! A Harley shirt is like $50, right?
A ducati shirt is $70-$80 for just a regular t-shirt!!

If you want the fancy t-shirt with printing on the back or a logo on the sleeve they are $100+ !!
