Every thing youv'e pointed out is correct captain, but the sad part is that the vast majority of the voters couldn't see through the choice of tweedledum and tweedledummer. Electing ANY of the so called minor party candidates would have done more good for the future of this country than either of those two bought and paid for political drones. VWW

The V-Rod as it is works nicely to do what was intended to do: kick regular cruiser ass, feel svelte and light (by cruiser standards) and look good doing it. It does all that.



I love my V-Rod and have tons of fun riding it, but I can tell the big difference that it makes to have a passenger. My wife weighs about 120 lbs but I can FEEL (and hear) the bike being unhappy if I try to accelerate hard under 4000 rpms for instance (something that doesn't happen when riding solo). I'm about 190 lbs so we're not talking even 400 lbs combined to make the engine feel anemic at low (not even too low) rpms.



IMO the Revolution engine needs to grow in low end grunt and higher torque figures to fulfill duties such as touring or carrying around more weight.



For serious touring duties the motor must be improved (most likely enlarged). Since the fuel storage would require expansion (it is now under the seat using up as much space as they could allocate) it seems to me that it would take a new design to make it work ($$$ involved to make it happen).



The V-Rod is not selling terribly well, so I'm not holding my breath for H-D to come up with variants of the VRSCA.

Yeah both Kerry and Bush really had to look far and wide to find running mates more skilled than themselves. VWW

Oh, no doubt about that- I would rather have voted for ANY other republican candidate than Bush, since he was by far the worst choice there, and as a motorcyclist would never have voted for Gore. Unfortunately, we are stuck in a system that requires an enormous amount of money and clout to run a presidential campaign, and the only two parties with enough of both to win refuse to pick decent candidates.



I think it was Jefferson who said that a two-party system would wreck this country. I think he's going to be proven correct in the future, if he hasn't been proven correct already.

It would have to be more contemporary looking for sure.



I don't know if the Buell would sell any better liquid-cooled. Suzuki isn't selling a whole lot of SV1000s and Ducati sells plenty of air-cooled Monsters.

Yeah but he still makes more horse power than the mill in his glide. VWW

BTW captain Bush and Cheney are not Consevatives at all. The last conservative Republican to run for the presidency was Barry Goldwater in '64. Since then the Democrats have drifted futher and futher to the left and the Republicans have followed . By all practial measure Bush is much further to the left than JFK. What exactly is the difference between Bush and Kerry on the most important of true conservative issues? They are both supporters of big government, huge tax rates, and the futherance of government intrusion into almost every aspect of out lives. There may be some minor diferences between them, but nothing big enough to make either of them a viable choice to stop the rot enveloping out nation. VWW

Yes, I know. That's there simply to aggravate kpaul and a few others whose purpose in life is to bash Bush. It's not meant to be taken seriously.



Are there any good 3rd party candidates this year?
