If you want a good motorcycle book, buy, beg, borrow or steal Superbikes of the Seventies by Roland Brown

It covers all the great European and Japanese bikes of that era, including the HD XLCR. All the great bikes we lusted after as kids for us boomers and some history about where we came from for young sportbike fans.

I'm serious, you NEED this book !

That reminds me of a coffee table book I saw once that was nothing but pictures of coffee tables...

I can somewhat understand why someone with a poor understanding of English would want to use "Tempter". "Madura", or even worse, "Virago" (which means a b!tchy woman, basically) I will never understand.

Oh, and the "Vulcan" and "Intruder" are right up there with "Virago".

Any mention of the failed VR 1000 superbike? I just see with all the money HD has made on those who purchase those crates, why they can't field a competitive road racing team.

Far better to settle it with Wright's book than the traditional flying barstool! No rational person could disagree with this statement, that's obvious. Having said that, as long as I am not the target of the barstool, I'll still have to give the "flying barstool" the top points as far as entertainment value and good ole Harley tradition.



I have a Sportster Sport. I've talked to a lot of Harley salesmen who have never seen one. Until the V-Rod it was the quickest Harley 0-60, designed and produced by Harley. Since the guts of the V-Rod are compliments of German engineering, I still consider the Sportster Sport to be the quickest real Harley.



I'm jumping behind the bar, looking for that first flying stool.
