Default Chesty Puller

After reading this article I did 25 pushups for Chesty Puller. Marines will know what I'm talking about.

"So is this a bike I would buy? I think I would strongly consider it, ...."



C'mon, you really would consider buying one of these things? Why on earth would you do that considering all the other bikes out there? Reading the article, it looks like its minuses outweigh the pluses by a good margin. Not to mention it is funny looking.

I wonder if when the Korean Free trade agreement goes down so will the price?

They could turn this into a full-blown middleweight cruiser by putting a huge wheel on the back, adding about 300 lbs of lead to it and stretching the front forks another foot. The power-to-weight ratio and handling would match up perfectly.

Rejoice!! entry level riders. You can have big twin hp in a lite, low-slung motorcycle and not look too bad while learning the ropes.

Wow that thing looks hideous and chintzy. It looks like it's made from the same chromed plastic that's used to make those faux rim/hub-caps you see on ghetto fabulous cages.

If I were in the market for something on the level of a 750Shadow/800Marauder... you bet. This looks like it beats the crap out of any of the other middleweight cruisers. Honda shoulda put a ~65hp plant in the Shadow years ago.



Maybe the Koreans will break the Big4 out of their lethargy.
