I saw that, too. Quite right. Only short guys hate the R. Normal men love them. Best kept secret in motorcycling! I will trade an 09AW for any R, right now. Joe
Not all of 'em, I'm a short guy and I like mine just fine. It's traditional cruiser guys that are accustomed to riding around on these slammed, no suspension, 12" seat height recumbent motorcycles that don't like it

I love my R...I'm keeping it for sure. I have never invested so much money in something to have such poor resale value. It's one of those mistakes I hate and love. The only way to get a return is to ride it out. Plus, still gets tons of looks every where I go and nobody knows what it is, especially where I live....

Took a look down a westbound road,
Right away I made my choice.
Headed out to my big two-wheeler,
I was tired of my own voice.
