With the wife it changes things. Thinking of a BMW K-Bike currently. Electra Glide would be nice, but the K is half the cost.
Had an Electra Glide for 15 years...sold it several years ago...
Last couple of years we've been riding a '95 K1100RS...
I would never consider going back to a Harley after spending time on the BMW...It just handles, accelerates and stops better.
It will cruise all day at 85mph and handles the twisties like a sport bike. Plus, it's is comfortable and has HEATED GRIPS!

Depends on the part.
Most stuff is readily available though, expendables like gaskets and such are dealer items.
Hard parts that break are good for ebay.
Also, Erik Buell Racing has been great for support, at least for us racing them.

This isn't mine, but it's what it will look like when I get it finished. 1963 305 Dream. Passed down to me from my great uncle.

2003 XR650R dual sport with 680big bore and HRC cam,Precision concepts suspension and 4.6 gallon IMS tank,foot pegs, and shift lever, with Kenda Trackmaster II dual sport tires. I work in the off road motorcycle industry so I got all of this done for free I just had to provide the bike. Perfect off road and not bad on the street.

My first bike, a 2005 suzuki c50.

I dont get SQUAT done for free, LOL. I put apes and stainless cables on her.

Got a set of pipes, a fuel processor, and a new clutch to install this winter. Will prob end up posting another pic when i do. I think the pipes (roadburner) look much better than the stockers.

Also gonna try and mount a marauder front fender on it. Looks a bit less bulky than the original.

Wish I had more pics...6yrs ago. Bday present. '07 VRSCAW before the chrome. Later mods incl'd exhaust, 1250 cams, intake etc. 130HP at the wheels. Sadly got a divorce and had to get rid of it. Miss it bad.




What I rented in Daytona, Jan of '08. Rode to Key West and back on the A1A. Epic journey. Rained most of the time, but you could say it was a baptism of sorts.




Hotel I stayed in
