I seem to be behind the times here. I've heard these mentioned a couple of times. What are they. (a motor I'm guessing....?)

I don't think its all that hard. I currently have a Japanese cruiser, but if I ever replace it it will be with a Harley. To me they really are better. Plus you get to be in their club!

LOL! I'll probably be riding some memory foam electric tour bike by that time.

There's a club for any unique or sexy bike, from HD's, to Guzzi's, to Hayabusas, etc., so a club isn't so hard to find. I'm happy enough to be in the 2-wheeler club regardless of bike, though I can't argue it's easier to hang with like-minded riders (sport, tour, adventure, cruiser, etc.).

there is no way those bikes can corner with the street rod. I'm not talking about the V-Rod, or the Night-Rod, but the Street-Rod, with less rake, more ground clearance, and a better seating position.

Then you didn't do your homework. I owned one too. 1500 big bore, nitrous, blown, turbo, chain drive, you name it, all the way in excess of 200BHP. Take that extra $ you will pay for the V-Rod, and the Max will out handle the V-Rod on any paved road period.

Made in Austria(?) Aprilia and a bunch of other manufacturers use their engines. HD was a racing product customer, once upon a time, IIRC.
