My next bike is the one I have now, if that makes any sense.
For me, my age, our riding style its a perfect match and I want to see how much mileage I can get out of it. Bike runs like a dream.

BUT ... as the years roll by, I would be thrilled for other companies to turn out a product like the VStar 1300 tourer in the same weight and engine class and if so I will certainly take a hard look at them.

The only wild card out there is possibly a Road King 09 or later. But we are talking years and I honestly think its more weight then I want but ... again ... if even Harley turns out a product in the weight class and engine size as my current bike I will take a good long look at it.

2014 Road King (current)
08 V-Star 1300 Tourer
07 Boulevard C50

No next bike for me. The one I have now is my last.

I'm finally happy with what I have. Maybe in 5 years I'll replace it with another one.

I suggest a a Kawasaki GTR1400ABS Concours

I've got 43,000 miles on mine since May 1, 2010 with drop pegs for my wife's 2UP comfort.

There is only one word to describe it

Have Fun
'09 Kawasaki Concours

I'm happy with my Vol for now but a few years down the road I'd like to pick up a Nomad 1700. I checked it out at the motorcycle show a few weeks ago and liked it alot, even more than the C90t.

Ah yes, I know what you mean.
Krusty & I were drooling over a Triumph Explorer, but it's a bit too tall for me. I'll probably have to settle for a 700 or 800 GS (maybe by coming spring).
