Not enough of you took one. H-D no longer sells it.

I would have expected the Monster to outperform the XR to a greater degree. Interesting. Perhaps H-D isn't as clueless as we like to think.

I'd love to see the sales numbers on the XR. After all the hoopla and even mass mailing invitations to buy one of the "Special Edition 1st 750 Built," my friend who's sales manager at the local HD dealership said they hadn't sold one.

There's a sticky thread for "which bikes they really should have compared." It's at Motorcycles & Street Bikes | Find Road Bike & Sport Bike Motorcycle Reviews – Motorcyclist Magazine.

No, I registered long ago to search the forums, a feature that is unavailable to guests. Statements like "The xxxxx is the best yyyyy ever" are often a source of contention. I was just defending the virtue of one of my bikes.

I think we'd all agree that a user's post count is not always proportional to the quality of their input.

No but lots of people come in here and b*tch about sh*t like that and run away. Like the bunch of people who came out of the wood work and flipped out about the luxo touring comparo because they used the screaming eagle harley and its sooooooo much more expensive and blah blah blah.

Thats all.
