New Bikes 2023

Hey All - thought I'd kick off a discussion about new bikes/ updated bikes for 2023, with this article from road racing.com on the Suzuki 8S pricing. Looks like actually affordable fun.

So, 9k is a middle of the road 900cc sport bike.
Seems reasonable.
‘Bout the same as a new 450cc motocross bike.

Now here’s what one would consider Harley’s
signature bike.   I’m sure there they have a variety of prices for the different models they offer.  

But really, to one guy, The Road King is about as orange and black as you can get.

That Road King special looks great, but I don't want 807lbs to push around the garage. Is ironic that in the years when I could have managed that weight I didn't want a Harley cruiser, and now that I would be open to a bike like that I can't really see myself managing the weight. Timing is everything I guess 🥺
