Speaking of WV Harleys, I spotted this at a steakhouse in Parkersburg today... kinda neat! Looks like a Velorex sidecar, so it may be fellow inmate prichmon as I saw in the sidecar forum here that he was working on something like this:



Not a harley guy, but I kinda dig it.

If I had to have a Harley, that looks like the one to have.

Who was on the blue KLR down around Racine today at the park. It looked to have some ADV stickers on it. We also passed what looked like an older DR in Beckley.
Speaking of Hogs, We got behind a group of four on rt3 before whitesville so. I pulled off and got gas, caught back up to them before Arnett.
Sad thing is I was in two-up cruise mode with the wifey, although I did drag a peg or two on the uly. Of course I got behind them on the nice curvy section, so I had to pass them first chance I got.
They give you looks when you go blowing past them.

I giggle all the way home. I really dont know why they do that stuff.

I wonder if they even brought it up at the dinner table? "Gee that dirt bike was quick eh" "Whats up with that guys helmet visor?" " That kinda sounded like a V twin " lmao


EDIT= diclaimer before the HD police start on me. I have owned a softail custom, a buell T-bolt, and a rigid wide glide with a evo.

It's always fun to do that, though I'll occasionally run across the random Harley rider who "gets it" and owns a dual sport or adventure bike in addition to his chrome Hog.

I'll probably own some kind of a Harley some day, the Mrs. and I have seen a few we wouldn't mind doing some road touring on.

Oh I know some of them get the dual sport thing, Like Dad he has one and a GS. What I dont get is why they want to jump and race anything that looks fast.

It's orange too, those are the fast ones.

My rear tire is shot, I'll probably be riding something else for the next few days. Btw, don't try conti-motion tires, my rear is done with about 3k on it. Then again it could just be me.

Its not indecisive, its trying all the flavors before you settle on your favorite. Mine happens to be a mix of a bunch of flavors. Some dirt, some asphalt, some power, some comfort, topped with some sweet exhaust noise.
