Hello everyone, I've been riding motorcycles since 1972 and had seven bikes since then. Honda, Yamaha, and some Harleys and am currently riding a 2004 RoadStar. Up until last weekend the only Rune I had ever seen was up on a display lift at the dealers and it looked incredibly large. I finally saw one on the pavement and got to talk to the rider and all I can say is WOW! Now, I've always been impressed with the Valkerie,(who hasn't?) but the Rune is flat out the most incredible cruiser on the road. Don't get me wrong, cause I love my RoadStar but what could stand up to the rune? Boss Hoss? Triumph Rocket Three? If Darth Vader rode a motorcycle it would have to be a black Rune.
