I would assume a Cross Roads Classic since that's what he has in his sig.

I always thought the Classic was a good looking bike. I never knew a MC had an age class. I spent my 30 on a RSV, Part of my 40's were on it as well, then a GW. Now ride the XCT for the introduction to the fifth decade.
I just like touring bikes. Always have. Ride what floats your boat.

2012 XCT, AFR+ Gen 4, Lloydz air filter. I don't equate noise with power.

A respected member on another forum told us that he rode to the store one day, dismounted, a bunch of high school girls started whistling at him, he takes off his helmet and out pops his scraggly 70+year-old noggin'..

That was a while back.. He died recently (rest his soul), lived a full life and was scooting around on high powered two-wheel machines until the day he popped his clogs..

So Fifty, ain't nothin' ..just broke-in ..

I'm 54 and ride my highball as often as possible. My 25 year old daughters friend told me I look really cool riding it........ that will do for me.

the Highball is not a cheap home built bike with a little bobber engine.
It is a production muscle cruiser with attitude and a bobber vibe.

People say old man's bike like it's a bad thing. It takes a while to accumulate the wealth to acquire a bike like this.
I have a Highball and a Crosscountry that I ride weekly, if not daily.

I'm 57 and a grown-ass man.

Sounds good guys, I am gambling that when the 2016 models come out, the 2015 high ball on the floor will still be there with a better discount. Last year August was another $500 off or so. If it's there!
