    I take X-Rays at the ER. No way I'd ever ride a motorcycle. 98% of my peers feel the same way. A close friend that i met in X-Ray school and ended up being good friends with did decide to buy one. He said he was young and single, didn't have a family of his own yet and nobody depending on him, so it was the perfect time for him to get a bike and get that out of his system.

    They did a really nice job on his face for the funeral. He really looked at peace.

    Motorcycles are goddamn death traps. You can trust me, because I am a dude with a muppet on a motorcycle as my avatar!

    Seriously though. If you do get a motorcycle, just stay safe. There is nothing protecting you if someone fucks up on the road. Ride like everyone is out to get you.

    I like the Indians..I just don't like that version.. I also absolutely despise the road glide of a Harley.. but everyone has their thing.. my Yamaha has been a great bike.. but I really like the road king, fat boy, and street glide..Indians are a lil more money than the harleys though

    Have you test rode the HD Softail Deluxe yet? It has that new M8 engine and it's a nice ride imo.

    I like the older goldwings. Just started a restore on an '84 gl1200 last week. Bought it from my brother, who got it from his father in law, the original owner. It has 22k original miles. I'm waiting for a new fuel filter and pump and hope sgr fires up once I get them installed.
    This is my 3rd goldwing. I think I'm gonna take all the plastic off and go without it all. Them goldwing motors are pretty too look at.
