Actually, I have nothing against Harley and will probably own one at some point. The "slamming" was more of me making fun of the typical reaction from some people.



If you are on here much I also poke fun at the "if-it's-not-a-super-duper-sportsbike-it's-crap" crowd.

As far as a cruiser goes, I don't mind having a bike that only has 60-70hp. Especially since some of those XL sized cruisers are bigger and heavier.



I'm also guessing that the same 60-70hp harley can be upgraded to more than that with all of the aftermarket stuff HD offers.

You know, I've never felt like Pee Wee Herman on any of my bikes. As long as I can out-accelerate and out-manuever the cars around me when I want to/need to, and feel solid going down the highway at 80, I'm happy. And that's what my Harley does for me.

I always laugh when I hear some fool call Harleys "junk". I never see Harleys in junkyards. Or Ducatis or Triumphs for that matter.



Nothing but "superior" Big4 products. Acres and acres of them.

If you're looking for a bike that can take off like a bat out of hell from stoplights you might find that even today that old 37hp RD350 will still humiliate most cruisers.

Default Hold on kn

I've owned two,(FXR, Fatboy) not one problem with either. Will own another, more than likely a RoadKing or Roadglide.

Here's a short list of topics that all end up the same way; Oil, politics, helmet laws, biodiesel, religion....etc. It's all emotion and very little logic. Cause everybody has an opinion blah, blah.



So, please edit out your logical post. Great choice of bikes btw, saw one today with an extra factory disc up front and drag bars, it looked great.

I don't know why Harley would want to defile itself with that vw crap, we need a lot bigger if we are going to fit in there too.

Will hold up to 300 kg? That's about 660 pounds. I think there a a few Harleys that go over that weight.
