At the end of 2022 I knew I wanted to move on from my 2019 Harley Davidson CVO Street Glide. The trip I did with some mates to Victoria drove home how ordinary the stock suspension and seat were.

Whilst I could have upgraded the suspension and seat there was little to be gained long term. So it was time to look for a replacement.

One thing I that I’d determined was I wanted to ride something different from any of the Harley Davidson’s I’d owned previously. The 2 motorcycles I was looking at were the Honda Goldwing DCT and the BMW K1600GT.

On a trip to Brisbane I had hoped to see a Goldwing DCT, the dealership were lax in updating their website and the bike was gone. So the next step was to look at the BMW K1600GT. I did love the look and feel of the bike when I sat on it. The seat was a bit higher than the B model. So being a bit of a “short arse” I opted for the B model and I wasn’t disappointed.

Part of choosing a new bike was looking at what you got for the money you were spending. As much as I love the look of the 2023 Harley Davidson CVO Road Glide Ultra I was never going to drop $62K on a bike. That’s the same money I paid for my VF2 Holden Commodore SSV Redline.
