I agree. The Japanese makers tend to lag on the fashion thing, although my wife would say a nerdy engineer should not be allowed to make statements about fashion. .



I too like looking at the Triumph and Ducati stuff. But the Kawasaki ans Suzuki gear is always gawdy and has styling from the last century. Yamaha is getting the right idea.

OK I think you covered all my thoughts about HD. But see my post. Having a friend go over to the dark side (HD) makes me rethink some of my squidly notions. HD is investing in the future which is great!

They will make better clothes the same way they started making decently styled cruisers, by copying Harley almost exactly, and then slapping their name on it. It worked for their ugly cruiser bikes, so it should do wonders for their clothing.

I can tell where this is all leading Kpaul, you bought a Sportster didn't you?

Or you're planning on it and want to modify your position so old wheezers from Utah and San Diago don't suffer total renal failure at their keyboards. A word of advice, Get the Sportster Sport model, that looks like about the most fun.

One more nice comment about HD and your journey to the DarkSide(tm) will be complete.

Why not buy a mini-van and ride in luxury, more power and better handling then a road king.

Default I've notified the authorities

I have asked the Seattle PD to be on the lookout for the real KPaul. This one posting here is either a fake, or has been kidnapped and fed an overdose of sensibility. If KP ends up on a Sporty or Buell, I will sell my Harleys and swear never to buy, or be associated with them again. I hope the police find the real KPaul soon, so my life will not be turned upside-down.

Ah. I see. That guy wins the award for stupidest unoriginal not-funny attempt at a snide remark about Harley-Davidson of the day. Congratulations.
