What's your next bike?

Winter gives me less time to ride and more time to think, so I've been thinking about what bike I might buy next. I've owned a number of cruisers, so I'm thinking of trying something different. Not that I don't like the comfort of my C50, and I wouldn't mind more comfort for the occasional 2-up, but I can only rationalize 1 bike at a time with my wife. So I must compromise. Here's my short list for next bikes:

V-Strom 650, used Goldwing (probably 10 years old), VTX 1300R, BMW R 1200RT

All old, all used... what's on your short list?

2005 C50 - Silver and Black Beauty
- So many bikes, so little time.

I'm petty much set on either an M109, or a Victory of some sort. I haven't decided which Victory model I like best yet.

Music, Motorcycles, and Family... Nothing else really matters in life!

The local dealer had a 2013 on the showroom floor I demo'd the last month. In Sept, they wanted $15499. Just saw an Austin dealer had it reduced to $13299. I'll wait till next summer for a rebate summer deal....

I'll either trike what I have with independant suspention ( 0nly have 10,000 miles on her) or buy a used Goldwing trike.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

'05 Honda VTX 1300R Champion trike Kit. Mustang Seats and Backrests, Kuryakyn ISO grips, pegs, floorboards, shifter and brake peddles, Cup Holder. Universal passenger arm rests, Wolo horn, Vista Cruise, Shark 600 watt stereo, ShowChrome Risers, lots of chrome.
