    Got my wife a 2022 883 so we can “save on fuel” lol. If you’re ever in the market for a old suburban, don’t. Costing me $800/month in gas.

    That things rad. I always liked that cream color HD has. Especially with the black. But yea a buddy of mine got a brand new Dodge dually about a year ago. He parked that thing and got a $500 Toyota Tercel off some cat on Craigslist. It’s crazy man. Anyway, good lookin bike.

    We welcome you with open arms. I live in Overland Park KS which is the distracted driving, texting, me first, no look lane change, 100 mph in the rain, no blinker using Tesla entitlement capital of America as far as I’m concerned. I’ve lived here 3 years and have been involved in 4 incidents swapping paint. None of them my fault. One of them a chick who got her license on a Friday, blew a red light on Saturday and totaled my beloved Chevy Impala. It’s cash only cars for me now, I’m sick of having nice stuff and trying to take care of it only for no one else to watch what they’re doin. I can’t tell you how many people have parked next to me, swung open their Range Rover doors and smacked my car at HyVee just to glare at me like I’m in their way. Jokes on you #### bag that scuff on your door corner now is gonna cost more for you to touch up than this whole ride is worth.

    Luckily we don't have that many a-holes out this way. I'm that guy who takes literally the furthest away parking spot where nobody parks and it doesn't fail some wingnut will park next to me.

    Me on the other hand I’m hoping to find a cheaper priced Tahoe or something similar. I only do 250 to 300 miles a month lol

    Same here. A million spots around me at the end and someone parks next to or behind me. My mother still has to get the spot closest to the entrance and complains that her car is all dinged up. I have told her over and over.

    That would be me -well- not right next to you, but I figure anybody that is parking at the far end of the lot like I do is going to be considerate about opening doors.

    Least expensive, most fuel efficient automobile sold in the US today, a Chevrolet Spark.
    I routinely get 40 mpg with mine purchased new 4 years ago. Have been offered exactly the same price I paid for it with 30K miles on it.
    In their infinite wisdom, GM will discontinue the Spark in July 2022 and switch the platform to a larger SUV.
