When someone builds a chopper that's comfortable, quiet, reliable, and can traverse 400 miles of twisty road in daylight hours, I might take a look.

While I've never met the man, I've heard several first-hand accounts of Indian Larry just disappearing on highly competent and far better equipped riders with only a chopped Sportster to hustle his way through the canyons. I kinda think SA should do the interview himself. Seems like they have a lot in common!

Actually, if they'd posed her next to a CBRZXYZGSXracketyrack the same people'd be drooling over her.

Thanks Betamax for making me laugh my water out of my nose. I'm glad I wasn't drinking hot cofee!

Amen. Who *really* cares what other people ride/enjoy? As long as they're not hurting you

(or the sport, i.e., LOUD pipes by the hospital), no one should care.



I wave at everyone. I'd even wave at KPaul, even though I loathe his diatribe.

Don't worry, negative comments about the girl are being censored away.

Hmmm...I take offense;isnt youth an excuse.?I had a 59 Panhead chopper i n the day. A neighbor who had no idea whatb he was doing started it and I who had less of an idea finished it.Hoo boy what a POS....can you say front wheel flop. A weak front brake was the least of my problems.Luckily I couldnt keep it running enuff to kill myself.I prefer to think of the experience not as stupidity but as a learning experience.

I wouldnt mind having one again either...but if you build one pay attention to things like rake and trail,words most of us hadnt heard of in the day.Also,diverge from "old school"enough to have a decent front brake. Oh and if you must have a hand jammer,resist the temptation to have a suicide clutch and build a rocker clutch.....or build a hand clutch into the shifter like some of the old panheads. Old school is okay but learning from the past is not a bad thing.
