When the affects of the drugs/alcohol wear off you will hopefully realise what a mistake it was to start this thread.

Stay with the Harley,and don't just become one of the 'clones', if you hanker after a day out on a BMW/Trailie then by all means rent one for a day.

This will now probably start a pro/anti Harley debate

I would agree.

Pretty much any bike can go anywhere in the world, with the exception of the obvious offcourse (lowrider with roadtires in the Sahara might not be so fun).

Rent a small trailbike if you want to go offroad, but otherwise have fun riding mex.

If you still want to swap your bike, then go to the "sell/swap bike forum" in the bottom of the page.

harleydan,

I have a tricked out '08 KLR(hard bags/top box/heated grips/scottoiler/rick mayer seat,etc,etc), very low miles, that I would swap, even up, for your '08 roadglide :-) Hell, I would even ride it to Mazatlan to met you as you get off the ferry.
