They can't get lost. They only have to follow the trail of parts back home.

Nah, I think they all have their licenses suspended by now ...



I'll be in San Diego for a few weeks come next month, so I guess I'll have something to do then.

Ah yes, the good old Highwayman days.....



I've never heard of Valkyries, VMax, or Magnas be described as overweight, poor-handling, underpowered, cruiser-styled sportbikes or standards. It would seem with the first portion he was describing Harleys to a tee.

I follow the oil drippings. Sometimes all the parts already fell off before the ride.

I'll be sure to immediately file this under "News I can't use".

1st- the highwayman was poetic garbage with no factual basis. This guy is flat out blunt with opinion that's at least based on some fact. I most definitely like Mikenomad's approach better, even if I don't completely agree.





2nd- If you haven't heard the above bikes described as overweight or poor-handling, you haven't been listening. I won't say that any of them are bad motorcycles - I've even shopped for the Vmax and Magna myself - but none qualify as lightweight or good handling machines.
