Tahoe Abandons Harley

News Flash:
In one of the very few smart moves I've made investing this year, one of them was putting in a sell order on my Harley stock at $55.25, which happened to be within an 8th of the high. So, for at least one transaction, I'm the man (We won't discuss the blood-letting of the rest of my investments).

I've also decided, that while I've truly enjoyed the Road King, it's time has past for me and I need to move on. The ads started in the paper today. Bye bye Road King. Yes, I've turned from the Dark Side

Now for a request. I'm thinking of saving a few bucks and buying something a year or two old. I'm rather fond of VFR's and K1200RS are nice but a tad pricey, but they have comfy ergos yet retain a sporting nature. Suggestions, comments?

Ride safe,
Kev

You can't get rid of the Harley! Who else is going to talk sense into us when we get to bashing the guys from Milwaukee?

You should get a Hayabusa. I heard they're kinda fast.

It doesn't have to be fun to be "fun".

It's the Wing or the 'Busa. With those two tied for first, the VFR would be a distant second. Good luck. This is gonna' be FUN!
