While this is cool and all - what (exactly) separates these from every OTHER Harley-Clone out there (besides the father of one Damn Sexy Elf lendin' his name and financial-backing)?

Maybe you can't read Airhawk!

“Designed and hand-built for seamless function, Dirico motorcycles are statements of craftsmanship, style, detail, and innovation, expressed through modern-age components yet assembled with old-world skill. Clearly not for everyone, Dirico motorcycles are designed to resonate with the more experienced rider who wants to be distinctive but not entirely different.”

In other words, nuttin' different!

How much you wanna bet those "low 30K" bike become "low 10K" bikes sometime before the Chapter 13 filing.

How could I have missed all that?

I feel so unclean now. Perhaps a shower with Liv would make me feel better?

I've never been a cruiser guy, but these look great to me. At least until I saw the price. I don't know how they'd be worth $15k (or $25k) more than a Fat Bob, but time will tell.

Is anyone buying this stuff anymore? I went for a ride this weekend, and I saw lots of Harleys for sale at what were bargain prices a few years ago.

It's over, Steve.
