I'm parting a 1500, and not keeping much beyond a set of wheels, a windshield, and some other odds and ends. These engines are so robust, I wouldn't bother to keep one around to trip over for the next 5 years, unless the one in the bike has 200,000 miles on it.
I guess it depends upon what kind of room you have to leave things sit. I use most of my garage space to work in - so storage is tight. 1500 parts are also easier to find than 4 cylinder stuff, so that is a consideration . . . .
6'-2", 210, old Geezer Glide and a big dumb grin.
Goldwings. . . if you're gonna have something between your legs, it might as well be enormous and smooth.
