Odd how such a raw boned (?) American like .....THE HIGHWAYMAN.........would use a "French" pronunciation to discribe his foe?

Cruisers aren't just about HP- look at the torque a Road Star has. It's quite a bit higher than any Harley I've seen (stock).



103" Dyna spank a Speedstar Road Star Warrior? Unlikely with 10 less ft-lbs torque and 20 lbs. more weight.

Heh heh. When you bought the Glide you didn't realize that you are automatically enlisted into the Trailerman's Brotherhood, didn't you?



When do your fringed armchaps arrive in the mail?



Actually the Italians change their govt about every 9 months so it's hard to tell whether they are commie or not. All those Euros are commiepinkochicknehearteddouchebags anyhow.

Default Warrior + Standard pegs

I think the seat on the Warrior is so low that standard pegs would have your legs folded up like origami. Of course after riding the thing 80 mph, 100 miles each way on the freeway to Fontana and back, I'd be more than happy to have cramped legs, instead of feeling like Rocky the Strung-Out Flying Squirrel.

What do you mean arrive in the mail? I've had those since the Low Rider. I just had little Italian flags sewn in them while I rode the Ducati.

The real key when you're in a riding position like that is to relax. I used to tense up my lower back muscles on the Low Rider and it just seemed like a constant fight with the wind.



Don't death grip the bars, relax your lower back and hip flexors and above all, make the wind your friend.



It's kind of like surfing when you get pile-driven into the bottom. You can't fight all that whitewater. Just relax and you'll get through it much easier.

Default Highwayman Uncle Sam wants you

What better way to showcase the Harley men than to stomp into Iraq and clean house. Make Bagdad the next Las Vegas. Get your troops in order General Highwaymanoff.

Nope, the rolling burnout is actually famed Croatian motomadman Darb Retsinab. He's totally Rad!
