Emphasis on fictional.

Default Re: And another thing!

I don't want a sport tourer VRod. I want a full tourer version. Kind of like an E-Glide with a V-Rod motor. I'd dig it. If they punched out the motor to 1800 and kept the weight at about 700lbs. it would smoke any tourer out there. I think they can do it, and I think they will at some point.

I dug the Sporty. Owned a new one in 80 and I still like em. They are the basic 'wheels and motor' bikes that still stand out after 50 years. I think I might own another one soon.

The purchase of a motorcycle is never a rational purchase. I know I've had 17 of em !

Drop a 1200 kit into that 883 with some cams, headwork and a new carb and that bike will kick some ass. I'm thinking about getting an 883 and doing just that.

Yawn! I skimmed the story, but just can't seem to get excited!



Most HD riders are posers....period!



PLEASE get back to serious machines.
