One bike for rest of your life?

Jesse James asked four Hells Angles that in this interview about riding,
they all had the same answer.

Go to the 4.00 min. in the vid...

So the real question is............Does riding an FXR make you a real biker?

I'm 67 and have had my fxr for 21 years now. So it may be the one bike I have for the rest of my life. I have no plans to sell it, and no plans to buy another bike now.

It makes you a smart one. And the envy of the rabble.

And, Rosie probably IS my last bike.

I hope they improve something enough to make me want to buy one. I hope like everything reliability and longevity increases.

Sure you can keep rebuilding, that is the beauty of a Harley, but if you rack up alot of miles, you are still racking up alot of miles. 5k a year, sure you can ride it the rest of your life.

I plan to have my FLHR, but new dressers. But my dresser has been dead for two years, and been riding the FLHR.

I have a dream, that they will come out with 100k volt reg, and I will buy one.

I don't know about having one scooter for the rest of my life.....I need a little change once and a while.

But If the MoCo announced that the FXR was coming back, built on the same frame and all. I'd go over to the Dealer and put my money down on one right then and there.

I've been thinking about one myself. It would be nice for just sliding around toen, and the close country roads.. I'd keep my Ultra for the rides over 300 and such..

Ok but what do they know about riding? They don't really ride.
On one bike for the rest of my life It is a peace of machinery not a wife.
My 96 FB will be here till I am dead but I will still have other bikes

I don't know why y'all think you need fat fenders for road trips.
