Default Farewell Fat Bastard, Hello Elvis

Well, I think my quest for a touring bike is over. I started off this spring with a cheap Kawasaki Nomad, after a lot of elbow grease I made it look presentable. I took one long road trip on it and it was fine, but then the Fatboy deal popped up so the Nomad was No- more.

Fat Bastard was just a place holder while I searched for what I really wanted, a Road King. I have been searching all summer for the right deal, but everything that came up in my price range had 50-80k on it and sold almost immediately. But then I saw Elvis, a 2001 Road King classic, 26k, lots of extras, and the price was right. It didn't hurt that I already had a buyer lined up for Fat Bastard.

Oh, and it had to be Elvis, because, well, he's the King, and with that Hooker 2 into 1 he really sings.

Hey. As long as you are happy. Good buy.

I like my dyna for what it does also. Good maneuvering having a buyer lined up already for the Kawi.

That bike is pretty cool. I'm no Elvis fan, but that just fits, somehow. Way to go, Joe!

Thanks John, glad to see you posting. You told me if if I rode a Harley touring chassis bike I would want one, you were right. I helped my neighbor get his ultra classic running and sold after it had sat for 3 years, the little bit I rode it showed me what I wanted, the Road King is more my style, I don't need full fairings, tour packs, radios, CB's, and intercoms. I am working on coming up with a quick detach tour pack for trips, just don't want one on there all the time.
