Yep, or any another bike that you've actually been able ride.



After thinking about it though, I do recall seeing test rides offered at BIG events. But the inconvenience of waiting for something like this, to me makes it easier to go to an HD, Buell or BMW dealer. Ride it first, then make a purchase decision with complete information.

Just when you think you've seen it all. About 2 hours ago I was sitting at a stoplight and saw a chopped trike at the cross street. As it motored off I was thinking "Hey, that doesn't sound like a 45 degree V-Twin". So I looked more closely and saw that it was a custom V-Star engined Trike.



Now I've seen it all.



(BTW. 10-22 hi-cap mags are cheap as hell again. Pick up a bunch before the democrats take over.)

Hey, no fair, that's what I was going to say. Well actually the M109, Warrior, and maybe a couple more actually handle better than most cruisers especially for their size. I don't buy the fact that if a bike is a cruiser it's an excuse to install cheap handling components. BTW, to me the M109 has a better, more modern motor. Both look cool though. I rode the M109 and I can tell you it is substantially quicker. Also I love the rear tire, large enough but not too large.

Default Dang

You don't even get my insults anymore!



I meant a low level manager at Boeing doesn't make enough money and that's why he is worried about gas prices.



I was all set for the compare paychecks post, the SAT scores post, the kid in college post, the new house and the Lexus post.



You really let me down.

My buddy from down the street just rode over on his '81 IT465. Sweet. Came by to borrow my dial indicator.

Why fiddle around with the pretenders when you can go straight out and buy the real deal... 2300cc of real deal at your local Triumph dealer. Davo

M109R was a German WWII fighter plane--just delete the R.

I think he is confessing an unnatural cumpulsion to diddle wonks. I think we should try to not be too judgemental.
