First things first lad, I'm still working on the pre-ground peg feelers and knee pucks for Ducati riders.

I'll get to the fringe repair kit after the thinsulate arm chaps for Seruzawa

Default Re: Horsecrap

Figured there would be jokes about this. Well let me ask you this, would you put a cheap set of tires on your ride? Maybe you would, but at some time you would probably regret it. I can't help but think that many who settle for the avg. poor handling and brakes just don't know any better. One ride on a descent bike should change that. - Why are we paying twice the price for cheaper inferior components. First thing I do with a new cruiser is remove some of the over priced crap suspension and braking components and put some descent stuff on. The cheaper sportbikes come with the good stuff, why not cruisers. Ok, I'm done again.

maxriderdon,



Sean has actually been a proponent of a motorcycle's handling ability ever since I've been a MOHO. The reality is that a motorcycle does need to handle and handle properly. These enormous rear tire bikes have to be "scooched" around corners and they are really dangerous. I will take a good handling motorcycle over looks any day. BTW I do love a good cruiser; just make it one that handles correctly.

Actually, the jokes are probably about your use of the word "descent" (meaning to decrease altitude) instead of "decent" (meaning of acceptable quality or performance)

Sarnali,



Not "another" line! Is it permissible for me to lane-split to the front?

Default Re:2 cylinders

Actually, I like twin-cylinder bikes. For that matter, I've had a total ball riding singles as well. I'm not racing on a track and high-end power output isn't my primary concern when I ride.



That said, I have a Triumph T-Bird with a three-cylinder inline engine.



There isn't anything "retro" about a twin layout for a motorcycle engine per se, just ask Ducati about that.



I agree that for the prices they ask Harleys have totally inadequate brakes and crap suspension components, though.



That 8-Ball looks great to me, but I'd like the footpegs a couple of inches closer.

It was more than $2000 by the time it was a done deal, and that was not including tax and license, that is way too much, right into H-D territory, plus some of them had a bad attitude to boot, he finally found a good deal in Prescott, I think he will buy it there.

I think from what you said, you realize the average cruiser has crap for brakes and suspension. If so, it's good to see someone else recognizes that. I wasn't referring to bikes with oversized rear ends but ALL bikes.

Sean sorry for selecting the wrong word for decent, just one of my many bad habits. Didn't mean to descend to that level. I'll remember to use decent words next time. Hope you were able to get the message though.
