I need some help.....

In my story of Zeke Myth's up-coming baseball season, I have him getting married and his teammates buy him a motorcycle as a wedding present, which he and his bride take off on for their honeymoon.

The prob is I know basically nothing about motorcycles except that they have two wheels instead of four. 8-[

So: anyone know a good motorcycle- make for cruising?

Harley Davidson would be the simple starting point for most authors, but there are other manufacturers if you want to be a little different.

Here is a list by year that might help you out. There may be a name that rings with the character too, like one of the Victory models.

Thanx for the info, Wayne. The victory looks 'tuff' but I'm thinking a wife wouldn't be real crazy about riding hundreds of miles on the back of such.

So far: my limited search has come up with a front-runner of the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra. It's a monster but it has a full set of do-dads and enough storage space to keep Zeke's new missus happy.

They also make trailers for storage and even small campers to tow behind the bikes.

Actually; I can see a prank his teammates could pull on Zeke: a pink trailer alongside this macho bike would be sorta funny.

I'm not familiar with your character, but if we're talking the married type that needs a bit of storage space (and more than a touch of class), try BMW.

There's also the Can-Am Spyder Roadster.

Now I'm thinking this would be a better choice; for someone without much cycle experience...
