I bet you never drove a Packard or a Harley.

Default Someone's in the kitchen with Dyna

I was just in a H-D boutique the other day (can't really call it a showroom) and they had a 2005 superglide on the floor for $11,995. It seemed like a such a good deal I almost bought it. Then I see the new Superglide for only $200 more with FI, 6-speed, and nicer wheels. More bike for the $$$ What's going on in Milwaukee? It seems like their prices are finally coming back down to earth.

I think it's only a matter of time before the entire H-D gets FI (and 6-speed trannys). You'll just have to wait. The Motor Company makes changes with the rash, impulsive speed of a glacier.

There is also a link on the website for "The Mounted Officer."



Those Night Rod jokes just never get old!

Bobber, cool. Ape-hangers,totally silly. Yes, drag bars would be better.

Night Rod - same almost good bike in a different color. Street Bob - a Super Glide with apehangers and spoked wheels, and $1000 more. Nothing new, nothing special. The Street Bob will be gone from the lineup in 2 years max. Maybe HD is changing their marketing from buy one and add new parts to make it look like you want it, to we'll make enough different versions that you don't have to do that. Gee, just think, instead of 32 models they could have 52, or 72 models. Be great for filling up those big showrooms of theirs.

Nope, Sir Buz. No such luck. It's basically a VRSCA with mid-controls and lower bars. Rake, trail and ground clearance are the same as the V-Rod. Still an improvement, but not a Street Rod.

I guess it wouldn't make sense to introduce a new version of a bike that just came out.



Plus the longer rake of the VRod looks cool even if it's not as functional.
