Horsepower equals (torque times RPM) divided by 5252. I'm nowhere near curious enough to go back to the article and look at the number, I'll let you do the math.

I lied, I was curious enough... the 79 is at an even 4000 RPM according to the H-D website, so, right at 60 HP.

I like the look, though.

I'm just a tad over 6' and when I sat on it I didn't find it cramped at all. Then again, my 77 Low Rider is set up with mid controls and a really low "gunfighter" style seat. Just a matter of what you're used to, I guess.

Default Wrong soundtrack to the video

I dig the bike but the soundtrack was way off. It should have been by "Tool".

Default Absorbent and yellow and porous is he

I'm not proud that I know this.. but when you hear it 5x/day for probably the past 5 years it sticks whether you like it or not.

You know what, I retract my silly argument about radar guns.



I might be correct, but since you're such a pleasant, friendly, generous, articulate, humble, intelligent and likeable guy, I'll bow out and concede the argument to you.
