Wow, nobody broke my chopps about the Harley yet. I love to see all the bikes. In my life ive owned many bikes of all riding styles and love to see that other people enjoy other riding styles as well. I would also love to add an adventure bike to the collection some day. I really like the new Triumph tiger 800's. I told the wife that I was going to get a full touring bike and make it my only bike but little does she know the V2K is staying. In a couple weeks she will forget all about it. I know the harley is not a beast like the V2K but ive been a fan of the newer Harleys because they really do ride nice and is comfortable and runs great. Over priced, Yes but Ive always got a great return on my two other harleys that ive had and this one was heavely discounted. I am by far not one of the Harley culture people but I am a big fan of the fit and finish of the Harleys. I look at it this way, a Honda accord is one of the best cars ever made and will run forever but a Mustang which isnt built half as well just looks and sounds really cool, so its only money and if the Harley doesnt run forever that so be it. Its all about what you like so ride on and have fun with all the diffrent types of bikes.
