So one of the reasons I’ve never bought a motorcycle is because I never thought there was one that fit my personality. Sport bikes are too sporty, and V-twin cruisers are too loud and brash. Dual-sports are not really me, either, because I’m not really into the off-road adventure thing. Because I’m not a retiree, a Gold Wing isn’t my thing either. I want to learn, though.

Since I’m 300 lbs I’d love to find a cruiser that’s not overpowered and not really noisy, without the H-D connotations...

Yesterday I saw a guy riding his Harley Sportster with a sidecar... with his dog in it...without super-loud pipes. They were actually kind of quiet.

My wife commented that if we were going to get a bike, it should be like that. With the dogs in the sidecar. That’s giving me ideas...
