Default back then..

J.J. stays young cuz she's a tiny ball of energy who rocks out exactly the way she did 30 yrs ago...and DID make a deal with the Devil that said:
You will never stop performing/touring.
For this you will receive the admiration/adulation/lust of every other young woman in the audience.

To stay young- be tiny, play live music, surround yourself with young woman, ride motorcycles.
Ill take the Warrior.

Nah, I listen to jazz most of the time.

YouTube - Acoustic Alchemy - The Beautiful Game


I still like '80's new wave though

Without the Harley "Muscle" it cannot be called such.

The connie 14 is a glorious beast. Something has to be said for "STUUUPID PPPOOOWWWAAAHHH". Its evilly adictive.

But it isn't even pushrods vs OHC and air vs liquid cooled.

The Suzuki is a 1.8L, liquid cooled, OHC twin. Which is making less torque and less than half the power of the Connie.

Heck, the SV650, a 650 twin with only 35% of the capacity of the Suzuki Cruiser (with the same # of valves and just two more cams) makes equal power and ~60% of the torque!

Why don't one of the Big 4 japanese makers make a real power cruiser: Take and shoehorn one of the literbike engines or super-literbike 4s into one of these frames, and show the world what real power is in a cruiser.

Oh, they have made real power cruisers. It's called the Vmax. The Eliminator.

People just like these big V-twins. They don't care about having 150 hp. So be it. There's plenty of room for everybody.

"Revolution 1250cc V-Twin that powers all ’Rods. The Muscle comes in a 121 hp/85 ft-lbs flavor."

I'd buy a used Warrior over the new Zook easily. A friend got one off Ebay for under $5000 a month ago. They haven't changed them since the intro, right?

Parts bin Idea for Kawi:
Take all the cool things about the Meanstreak and wedge the ZX/Conni shaftdrive motor in it. Bet you could pull that off and sell it for under $10K.
