New here. Interested in seeing what the Gunner turns out to be exactly. I come from a history of HD's. currently im bikeless and looking to get back into it, weighing out my options with the Gunner being one of them.

I presently own a '13 Sportster Iron--I bought it for myself as a retirement gift in June of 2013. I began riding back in 1977 and have owned several bikes over the years, but the Sportster was always calling out to me. However, I recently saw the Gunner on the net and--surprise of surprises--it grabbed my eye and hasn't let go.
So far, I've checked out the Gunner at two different dealerships thinking that seeing it for real would put a damper on my desire for one...that didn't happen. In fact, I like it more now than ever. This freaks me out a bit, but I believe I like it because I see it as a Sportster on steroids and as a blank canvas for modifications, and I like to modify vehicles almost as much as I like to ride bikes.
So, I don't yet own one, but I see it coming...the dealer in Ft Wayne has made me an offer that I might not be able to refuse.

Hi fellow bike lovers!

Ever since my dad bought me a Honda trail bike (50cc) I've had a motorcycle. I did take a break from biking when I had children... wife didn't want me riding because she didn't want fatherless kids... but it's in my blood so after a few years I was back in the saddle again. Since my dad always bought Hondas as I got older, I've continued to buy them once I got my own license.

My early years riding was on dirt bikes. First the Honda Trail 50, then a 125cc, then a 250cc. After riding dirt bikes ran its course, I jumped on smaller road bikes, mostly for city driving. I remember one of my favorite bikes when I was in my 20s was a Honda Nighthawk 700. I'm no longer in my 20s (wish I were!), but I'm still riding a smaller road bike: Honda Phantom (750cc). But I'm tired of the heavy vibration at highway speeds and I'm hoping to take some longer rides this year, so it's time to get a bigger bike.

The Gunner is at the top of the list. But as I mentioned in a different thread, I'm use to Honda reliability. Switching to an American-made bike is making me nervous. I know American-made bikes are much higher quality than in the past, but Honda has been so good to me that swithcing is difficult. Honda doesn't make a bike with what the Gunner offers.

Two things have to happen for me to get a Gunner:

1. I have to get a fair trade-in price for my Honda Phantom. And...

2. My wife has to give the green light to spending the difference between the Phantom and the Gunner.

#1 shouldn't be a problem. #2 is going to be a difficult sell. Wish me luck!

I have found the 2009 Vegas 8-BALL quality on par with my Honda ST1300 and my NT700. As for #2 , remember it is E-Zer to ask for forgiveness than permission!

Good luck! you will very happy with the Gunner (once you change the ugly pipes)!

Good advice! I may have to use this philosophy when she comes in from the garage screaming "Is that a new bike in the garage?"
