    So, what happened to the Indian? Was it a price issue?

    now I'm seriously browsing ads for a V-max
    and may very well end up spending money I don't have

    Sorry, The bug is contagious. I was really missing my bike. This Yami is so cheap and dependable I couldn't pass it up. Even though I've only had it two days, I'm looking for every excuse I can to ride it. It not large and cumbersome like my BMW, So taking it out of the garage is not big deal.

    The Vmax is a nice bike!

    @Mikey P you were asking me about the range of the SCR. It’s got a 3.2 gallon tank and gets 51 mpg. Looks like about 160 miles to a tank.

    I just got home from a little evening ride. I’m covered in dead mosquitos.

    My son had a V Max for a short time. He sold it so he didn't kill himself.

    I’ve never ridden on a Vmax but I’ve seen plenty of reviews over the years. Always thought it was a hot looking cruiser. I have also always had a thing for the mid 80’s Honda Magna V65. I had a V45 years ago, but always wanted the 65

    Today in the mail my ebay intercom helmet system arrived. I took a chance and bought an $87 unit. Turns out the thing is frickin amazing! Sounds clear, plays my pandora and IHeartRadio , connects to my cellphone calls, has built in FM radio, and connects with up to three helmets with Full-duplex conversations. My boy and I just tested them out and are blown away. This will make riding with my son so much funner.

    Link below to the headset I just got. Killer deal for all it does.

    Ya bluetooth headsets are very nice these days. Add a really good quality helmet, and the roads between the curves become more enjoyable.

    Never understood the need for head sets and music while riding a bike. The whole thing is to escape and feel the wind and the sun.............to forget about life. Same goes for those people who run and bike along the trails here. It's quite a calming experience to hear nature or to let your thoughts go without the distraction of blaring music or the constant attention to monitoring your heartbeat or time.

    After 500, 600, 700+ miles, the sound just becomes ear damage. On a serious ride or a track day I never use music. On a commute or the freeway in between fun roads having some music can help a lot.
