Fantasia is a classic, and should be on any must-see list.

Well first of all send the softail my way Are you sure you want to sell it? I am a softail fan myself so I think you should keep it :) There are lots of nice go fast bikes out there but none of them are comfortable for the long haul which is my issue with them. If you want something interesting though the Ducati Monsters and Triumph Speed Triple would be neat bikes. What style of bike are you thinking? Give me the details! This is fun, I love bike shopping, even if it isn't for me. Do you want something unique? Any brand loyalty?
Oops! I meant to start a new thread! I must have backed up a page and stuck this OT post here. Good replies, anyway!

I don't know, scorpa. I was thinking of maybe getting a dual purpose bike that is road-legal, but with off-road capabilities because we have lots of gravel logging roads here that go to some pretty nice trout ponds. I like the Softail, but the yearly excise tax is a pain (they don't depreciate like Japanese bikes do) and my riding buddies have thinned out. One bought a real fixer-upper house last year, one built a new house (unfinished, with no landscaping yet) last year, and one is undergoing chemo for an inoperable cancer that's going to kill him. Those are the guys that I rode with most of the time - all over 50 (I'm the oldest) and all life-time bike riders like myself. Now I rarely see them, and it seems kind of wasteful to have all that money tied up in a bike that I use for little joy-rides, when I could sell it and get something light, nimble, and easier on gas.

A dualsport would be fun! The KLR 650 is a great bike, I have ridden one of those quite a bit and always had a great time (my dad had one for a year or two and I adopted it as my own). One time I got nearly 80 mpg on it but I was riding it really easy, I think around 60-70 is more what I usually got. Plus that bike is bulletproof, not high tech by any means but still great. The BMW F650 is a nice bike but more money than I would pay for a 650. The KTM Adventures are nice but only if you are 7 feet tall. I think Suzuki Has a DRZ400 dual sport to that is more of a dirtbike with lights on it.

If you want a less offroad able dualsport that has a bit more get up and go that can still handle gravel you could go for a Triumph Tiger or Suzuki V Strom. Just don't get into a hairy off road situation with those.

Thanks for the suggestions. BTW, I started a thread about this (sorry for hijacking this one accidentally - keeping lots of tabs open in Firefox can lead to mix-ups).

When I was little apparently my favorite movie was Bambi, I actually wore out the tape haha.
A couple of my biker buddies have fallen by the wayside, and I'm putting my Softail up for sale. What should I buy?

Yep! I apologize. Having lots of Firefox tabs open at one time is a recipe for unintentional thread-highjack.

I figured that's what happened...but it was funny. Gave me a Scooby-Doo moment: "Hhuuuuhh?"

this post is for people looking for movies to watch... I dont think these movies will disappoint anyone

The Best- lawrence of arabia, Dr. Zhivago, Back to the future, American History X, Fight Club, Shawshank Redemption, Batman Begins, Lord of the Rings

runners up- sunshine of the spotless mind, star wars, 25th hour, enemy at the gates

uhhh, there are tons of really watchable ones like Armageddon, Matrix 1 and American Beauty, but I think they are too "hollywood"

on second thought, guys will probably like these movies, chicks have really weird taste

There's not really specifically one that I like the most. I can almost sit down and enjoy any movie, as long as it's not on Lifetime. I really enjoy WWI and WWII movies... gotta have plenty of bad-guy Nazis!

My favorite ones in no particular order are...

The Hunt For Red October
Aliens (The second one)
The Great Escape
Jurassic Park
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Forbidden Planet
Enemy at the Gates

Though it's not a movie, I love to watch it, too. It shows both sides, the nerds, and the beauties, lol, and they can actually get along quite well.
