    to many people lost a lot of money buying bikes and lost a lot of money when they sold them no bike is a good investment now days. i love bikes but it is over young guys now just play video games.

    There is much value in bikes or cars unless u buy a classic car you don’t buy a motorcycle thinking your gonna get a return on it that will never happen even in the best days you buy it to have fun and enjoy yourself

    To me it’s not about what I get back for it. It’s all about that internal feeling I get when I look at it and ride it. Kinda like my own little visa commercial.

    Although these bikes have crashed to 1/4 to 1/3 their original cost, those of us buying now slightly used Dogs likely won't see the financial loss that some of the guys that bought new saw. But as previously mentioned, my love for these Dogs doesn't revolve around a financial investment. It's all about my mental health, and when I throw a leg over the Dog and take off I forget all about everything going wrong in life and just enjoy. Hell just looking at my Dog in the garage puts a grin on my face!

    I’m grinning right now Brandon and I can’t even see the dog. These dogs are painful at times but you’re right, not about the investment for most, just the love of the bike, (and it’s any bike, ride what ya got).

    Paul Sr. looks like he's really mellowed out. I guess 10 yrs older will do that to anyone. Maybe it was just me, but it looked like he was a little lost looking at the motorcycle parts.

    Discovery channel has it online. I haven't had cable in almost 10 years so usually if it's not on Netflix or Amazon prime or CBS/FOX/ABC I don't watch it. I've watched too much TV recently it's driving me nuts
