Haha. I see more young punks overweight than ever these days. Your average 13 year old is well on his McWay to having Type II diabetes by the time he/she is 15.

Excellent point. Take the stop sign running SOB with you. You could cut a Caddy in half with this bike.



Of course a lighter and better handling bike would stand a chance of avoiding the meathead driver in the first place. I will stick with my sport bike and motarded dual sports.

With 120 foot pounds of torque, yes. In fact Jimmy Lewis (dirt bike guy with Motorcyclist, if memory serves) did one on their test bike.



No photos though. Damn journalistic responsibility at work. I guess burnout pics are OK though.

Why all the criticism of this bike? It sounds like the thing is well made and fun to ride. Who cares if they "copied" the headlight nacelle from Hardley and the wheel from a 9000BC Sumerian chariot? For that matter, who cares what the range is? So the V2K rider will be at the gas station while the K1200LT pilot is stranded by the side of the road with a rear drive failure. So what? To each his own. Cruisers are not built for "speed". Get over it, lol!

I think that was the kz440, right?



Remember making fun of them . . . :)

"that cruiser sales would collapse simultaneously" Oh yeah like that is going to happen. Hmm Victory Vegas, Triumph Rocket, Vulcan 2000, oh yeah I see the trend. Yes, these new cruisers are a desperate attempt to revive the collapsed cruiser market. LOL. KPaul is an idiot.

You are so right. I see so many fat kids compared to when I grew up (I'm 46)

Alfred Noyes was British and lived in England when writing The Highwayman. Taught at Princeton later in life but was regarded as a Brit.
