Re: If I get the Gist...of, the Crux...of, the Point...of Things:
Yeah: Had the same exchange with a moto-jorno, and it seems that the Warrior's price, is the bench-mark and deal-breaker among, just about everyone...when, it comes to the S-Rod.

Even if it was my style, can't imagine springing for an S-Rod; the Warrior's a +$5K, less!

If it was only a matter of, performance, comfort status and style, I'd buy an S4 Monster.

Re: 2006 Harley-Davidson StreetRod
This bike doesn't strike me as being anything new, or ground breaking. Seeing one in person didn't do anything for me. Didn't ride one, but I doubt I would be drooling on it after the ride. I'd rather have my current V-Max, or a Speed Triple, rather than this bike. Hey, I just figured it out! Since I bought my Max used, I can have both the Max and the NEW Speed3 for the same price as a Street Rod! Sounds like a plan.

Re: 2006 Harley-Davidson StreetRod
I really want to like this bike but it still lacks something in the overall visuals. It's still a bit too long, the tank is too flat and the exhaust has too much mass (as does the price). The paint schemes are okish but kinda ordinary. But, by gawd, Haryley is moving in a good direction here. A big tip of the hat to Middlewaukee.

Regarding item #1 - better have a release valve installed 'cause I think yer butt hole is broke.

I willingly defer to the man of obvious experience.

Re: 2006 Harley-Davidson StreetRod
Let's see. A power cruiser type bike that defies catagories, powerful rush but loses out a bit in corners but hey, it is not a sportbike!, somewhat upright seating and a bad boy attitude...

Didn't Yamaha do this better, and is still faster 20years after it's inception?

Take a Vmax for a spin for a lot less cash!

Re: At last a sort-of-new Harley to use the V-ROD engine
Whatever motor H-D puts into a new generation tourer will not be like a GoldWing in any way, shape, or form. I think they will always be two different animals, due to the philosophy of the companies, and the experience each bike brings to the owner. The Wing is a nice bike, and I will certainly own another one day.

You GPTB guys just don't like Harleys unless they're air-cooled eh?

A Harley that wheelies in stock form. How messed up is that! Oh I want to buy one and then ride wheelies all day long past posers on GSXR's, R1's and the like.

How about a deuce-and-a-quarter or late 60s Toro?
