Obviously you have never ridden a Honda Valkyrie...the only smooth, fast, comfortable cruiser ever made, in my opinion (40 years riding experience).

New Harley buyers are really retarded,

To pay over list is the act of a fool,

Or a smart guy with money who's brain simply farted,

And fell for the con so that they could look cool.



Why not a Guzzi, a Triumph, a Kaw?

Bikes that love curves and won't put you to sleep.

Are they so insecure that they don't know quite how,

To think for themselves so they act just like sheep?



There's much more to riding than standing around,

With your herd at the pub on the outskirts of town.

Leave them behind with the new bike you've found,

That goes like the wind and will not let you down.



You'll amaze at the fun that you'll have on a bike,

That don't go real slow and don't handle like $hit.

Performance, excitement; what's there not to like?

If I had to explain then you'll never get it.

After considering both of these bikes I think the 2003 Shadow A.C.E. 750 Deluxe would be a better bike for a melow putt. I want to buy the Harley but the fact that the motor is not mounted in such a way as to counter the vibration will have me looking in the direction of the ace 750. I will test ride both bikes but I think the vibration at 70 mph will be the determining factor.

I think that was a Bonnie that waxed our hero, or maybe the elusive Dunstall Norton, '67 was a little early for built Honda's ,,,,,,,I know it's a little nit-picky but what the hell By the way the new 1200 sporty S is my favorite sportster. I owned a '75XLCH and later a '78 XLH,, both tractors but fun as hell.

My Question on these two cruisers is what happened to the dyno.. was it broke? 750-883cc's and all you can get out of them is 40 horse. My lawnmower puts out half of that.

Paul, don't be naive. H-D can indeed do more than just frown. They can make sure dealers that charge over MSRP for its bikes go to the bottom of the list when it comes to waiting for new bikes from the factories. Dealers that "play ball" with the Motor Company should get most-favored status when it comes to keeping the inventory full and making special orders. H-D can go a lot about gouging dealers - if it chooses to.

I am tired of people *****in about what is on this site. If you don't like it here then go away. Take the $12 as a loss on your taxes and leave. No, this site is not the only motorcycle site out there, and yes I do read others. At the same time I feel the product they put out is worth my $12. Please shut the f@#k up.
