They are stuck in their corner forever, at some point they realized they are selling a lifestyle and not bikes. But they make shitloads of money at that so in some twistd way Harley does everything right.
So it is me. I was very impressed when I rode the V Rod. For a cruiser
it was pretty nice. Great motor, smooth shifting and as I recall it actually
stopped. If I was in the cruiser market again it would be a consideration.

Right now I would be in a long line down the list with the new KTM at
the top.

You've always struck us as more than just a bit odd.

*AltRider Taste of Dakar vids snipped*
It's probably more helpful to link to actual info of the event, than to videos of past events.
http://www.altrider.com/event/index/...28/ridesOnly/0

It's Feb 28th for 2014 3 days, 2 nights, 5 meals included. $259 for ride only, or $509 for ride+one class by Jimmy Lewis on Fri or Sat. (which reminds me, Jimmy owes me a front tire...) LINK to Registration page

Fair enough. Your reference to this years event made it appear to me that you were referencing the event to come. I'm not much for watching ride vids, but that's me. I'm sure others will enjoy them.

Ha ha ah ...
Pluric you are funny.

I had a friend that had a sportster and I had the wide glide Use to call him gay.

I bought 2 girlfriends a sportster . But that is when they were 883's, The newer ones or over 1200's now and ok they are bad. But still my opinion for women only.

But still I would not be caught on a sportster. Just me. Less suspension and like riding a little 50 cc. etc..
pos= light for CC's but shit man..

At the risk of sounding like an LC GS owner, I might message the seller and ask him to consider making a muffler guard as well out of the same CF so they'd match.

As a Harley owner I would have thought chrome would have been
your first preference.
