Re: Dad, ask the little woman for a weekend with your equipment
DC Dave perhaps you missed a main part of my false premise. A mid-sized bike with shaft drive. Not one of the bikes listed above meet the criteria. As far as the scooters go, I like to row my own gears and want larger tires, so they are eliminated. There is only one mid-size shaft drive bike available and it is a Moto-Guzzi. As I mentioned in another note, the nearest dealer is almost a 100 miles away.
So, before slinging darts, perhaps you should read the whole thing.
By the way, I do own an underappreciated 10 year old Honda PC800 that was gathering dust in someone's garage.
