    Doesn’t mean I am getting ride of my baby. She is just not going to be my everything ride anymore. Well once she gets a new motor and finishes her last journey home. Still 750 miles to go. In the mean time I have this beauty to break in and enjoy. B64036F6-6281-4E5F-B7D0-72B06672EE0D.jpeg

    I have two friends who ride the exact bike, one is a 2020 and he has approximately 30,000 km on it. He loves it, another riding partner of mine has a 2021 that he just bought one a month ago and so far says he loves it. I have been considering one too. I like the part you can use regular gas so you don’t have to hunt around for premium.

    Cool. I rode the DCT and loved it. Is that a DCT ?
    I see a lever so “clutch “? I think I would still want a clutch. To me it’s part of the MC experience.

    Yeah it’s got a clutch. That’s what made it a pain in the ass to find. I still roll manual trucks soooo no auto for me lol.

    Congratulations on your new Honda @mobear66. I've been contemplating a bit of a change as well. Though not nearly as dramatic as yours.

    Yeah that’s a keeper. My Buddy Dave and I are going to look at a Tequila gold XC with trunk and forged bars today. He thinks he’s buying it and he’s a Harley guy.

    I definitely agree! It's like driving a Ferrari with a paddle shift or automatic. WTF!

    My ole ladies mustang had paddle shifters. I hated it. Not saying I couldn’t get use to it but it was soo unnatural feeling. No feed back from motor or trans as you engage either to your choosing by the pressure on the clutch. I would truly have to learn a whole new way to ride.

    Muscle cars gotta have a man shift. Yeah the autos are faster …… I’m not trying to win stop light drags …. Just trying to re live my childhood.
    Buddy bought a new GT 500. He had no idea it had a dial on the center console. One of those guys with so much money he just called and ordered his color and said auto so his wife could drive it ….. lol. She hates it. He ordered another this time with a stick ? Is that even an option anymore on a new GT 500 ?

    It is but just rare. One “sporty” car that only comes stick is the Subaru WRX STI. They get that immersive feel.
