OK Folks, If anyone is privy to my general ongoing life, some of you have already had to withstand my bothersome chatter about Motorcycles lately. (sorry!)

For the rest of you, just something I've had playing around in my mind for a solid 10 years now. As luck would have it, I finally struck out, got in my MSF safety training and have obtained my Motorcycling License, and with that comes the choices of a first bike! Now, I'm a rather big guy, and most of my seat time will wind up being commuter duty and some around-town nonsense. As a result, I've tried to be pretty reasonable about choices for getting a bike. Now I'm at the stage where I'd like some opinions, facts, suggestions, etc. If you have links, stories, or anything else you'd like to share, I'm all ears!

   In any case, I've narrowed it down to these 5 contenders! I've chosen them sometimes for reputation, uniqueness, insurance, history, and especially style. I don't have $3-4k on hand to just go buy a used bike, although that was my original intent for a realistic choice, so I will be financing. I'm looking for something fun, docile, economical and has enough grunt to get on the highway. Thanks to Insurance and that i prefer a more upright or laid-back riding position, i have excluded all sportbikes, so keep that in mind please.

All that being said, help me make a Choice! Pick your fave, or what you think would suit me best given the conditions i set forth. Please Comment! as to why you made your choice or list another Option in the comments, PLEASE!

I'm liking the CB1100. Looks like my dad's old Nighthawk.

hey look right after i posted the pizza meme! WTF republicans are you dead from the neck up?!?
 
Republican: Hand Washing at Restaurants Should be Optional

No, really. With a majority in Congress the Republicans are focused on their, and the country's, priorities. Like the right of restaurants to opt out of having employees wash their hands.

Yup. It was on my list, too.

The Republican senator suggested restaurants could opt out of certain health rules as long as they posted a sign explaining their policy.

I saw a minor variant of this, and decided to add a little color to the text, and share it out with folks... cause I know more than a few people who don't understand this simple principle, and they stay on Facebook.

RIP to one of the classiest acts in Entertainment.
