Ah but not everybody turns agaist somebody who is against he grain. I understand there are those who take an offence of a contrary opinion, unnecessarily, and there are those who want to be one of the old boys and want to join the bullying to get accepted, the really sad ones.



I'm neither and I am a goddam cruiser. So maybe an attitude check wouldn't do too much harm. Or, possibly, as Gwyneth (who the hell named the *****) said, the pansy limey bastards are both more intelligent and more civilized than you guys.



I mean, don't let me start to rave (too late) they are Europe's swill. Whenever there is an English side having a.visiting game the police are not doubled but put tenfold. Local cops are not running the show, its a prospective national disaster and handled as such. And for a goddam reason (end of on-a-high-horse rant, have a nice day and did I mention Malbec is one hell of a grape)

Bollocks. Neanderthalians used to say the same about balancing shafts. And injection. And water cooling. And that real cruiser needs to have V-2. Why would anyone humiliate themselves publicly promoting these infantil "principles" is beyond me.

250,000 units



That's nothing. Honda has made something like 50 million Cubs.



My first motorcycle rides were holding on to my Mom while sitting on the metal rack of a 1961 Honda 50. If she allowed that today, she would probably be arrested for child endangerment.

Well the engine size is right. Just smush in the ends and presto a standard 750, just what I'm looking for.....

While reading this write-up, I had one of those disorienting moments where I felt like I was in a time warp and it was last week again and I was reading about the Vulcan 900. But nope, a look at the date/time at the bottom right of the monitor brings me back to the present. Must have been the 21 inch wheel that did it.



Oh, by the way, looks like yet another cookie-cutter Japanese cruiser. At least it is cheap. Pretty small gas tank, tho.
