Default Re: Tires and Wheels of a Harley

Since when has colossal road-holding heft, intimidating momentum, and a front end more gigantic than the landing gear of an airliner been a big plus on a motorcycle?

I love the JB as highwayman theory, I must say.

Bar none, the best post I've read since joining MO. Keep it up! Someone has to put THM in his place, and it certainly isn't Kpaul (no offence).

"emerges from the fog before the rest of the machine"? Kind of like the Exxon Valdez, wallowing through a turn an' headin' fer the rocks?, "wheelbearings the size of fists"? I think as a general rule, wheel bearings tend to be on the small side,,,not unlike ,,,,,,,,,,,,,THE HIGHWAYMAN'S,,,,,,,,,,,,,,winkie, "brawney men who suffer no fools" other than themselves, of course, as they pay $4~500 bucks for chinese leather coats and chaps at the moto-thunderwear boutique, that they could have gotten for $99.99 off the internet, as for swords,,,,,,,,,,,I think most swords are light and quick handling, I'd say more like a cuddgel, or rock or something,, "scattering like minnows in a pool"? I think they just don't want to be seen with you and your rightous partyin' bros, or else they're afraid you'll fall over and hit them,,,,,,,,,,sorry.

Default Re: Pirelli Diablo Tire Test

The Pirelli Diablo's look pretty good, are they making a sport tour or higher milage version for us slow pokes? If you look at the chickin strips on the wallpaper tire pictures, they have little raised pitchforks in the rubber, How cool is THAT, I used to run Pirelli Phantoms on my K100RS, back in the ancient '80's, I remember them as being better than Metzler Marathon's or Lazer's, Plus Pirelli has cool calender's on their web-site, if you can find them.

Excellent!



No disrespect to the many Harley riders I know, including some on this site, who are REAL motorcyclists, but you really did nail a certain segment of the Harley demographic!

Ya ever notice how these things seem to appear shortly after JB returns from an overseas flight? I think he composes 'em on the flight back, as an antidote to all that time riding sportbikes on roads with no speed limits, while taking full advantage of the free in-flight booze!

Default The Highwayman - Stanza II by Alfred Noyes

He'd a French ****ed-hat on his forehead, a bunch of lace at his chin,

A coat of the claret velvet, and breeches of brown doe-skin;

They fitted with never a wrinkle: his boots were up to the thigh!

And he rode with a jewelled twinkle,

His pistol butts a-twinkle,

His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jewelled sky.



--French ***** hat, lace, purple velvet coat, thigh high boots and a jewelled twinkle



You make the call, not that there's anything wrong with it.



C'mon Porthos (or Portlythos, seein' as how you are a Harley guy), this little exercise in literary masturbation has all the novelty of a Ron Jeremy film.
