Nah.  Have you ridden one?  It will surprise you!

Ride on,

Sat on the basic/bagger version, it is surprisingly light and carries its weight low (cannot say the same about the Moto Guzzi's).  But the $20k price of admission is steep, and I doubt I'd use it for its true purpose, logging many miles across multiple states.
Every day is ride to work day!

I'm in the same spot. I'd have to be able to retire to enjoy it properly. Still, what a good looking machine. If I ever hit the lotto it's on the list.
