New bike

My first bike was a 96 yzf600r then I got a 03 r6 and now i have a sabre 1100 and I hate it I miss the power but I like the comfort I need something powerful but nice for my lady so she isn't nagging about how uncomfortable she is on the sena (yes she can nag when ever she wants for as long as she wants) any ideas old or new bikes we go for relatively long rides when we can 8 hour rides or camping most of the time just a couple of hours maybe 4 and I would be riding everyday about 40 miles

you can't make the perfect girlfriend but you can make the perfect bike

Not new, but maybe new to you.
I think if you are staying with Honda then the V65 is probably the most really powerful cruiser period.
They are old, somewhat rare, likely difficult to find parts for, but OMFlyingGosh fast.
The were a bike that people bought, scared the excrement out of themselves and parked in their garage to talk about forever.
Every now and again you come across crazy low mileage examples for sale relatively reasonably as garages are cleared out.

Confused here (as usual). Are you asking for advice on which bike to get next?

Look for an older Valkyrie tourer, power, comfort and a classic look.

Valkyrie standard or tourer. Comfort wise the only thing I've done is put on a 2000-2003 standard driver seat as it is more comfortable than the previous years @$115 otherwise as it sits in the pic, 800 lbs. with full tank and all my road essentials. VTX 1800 are equal in weight and power (undressed) but a little bit too top heavy for my scrawny arse. My Valk is the easiest bike I ever owned/serviced. You'll LOVE the power band on these Dragons.




06' 1100 Spirit (sold 6/23/13)
71' CL 100 "Lil' Sista"
99' Valkyrie "Adele"
05' 1600 Vulcan "Ludabelle"

Ride Bell by "Yoman"

To everything there are exceptions.
