Nice write up Fonzie! CVOs are amazing bikes, no doubt. Then again, for 30 large they'd better be...

What kind of Sportster do you have?

Nice article there Fonz, that Fat Bob is excellent looking...except for that exposed paper air filter, that will pass about as much air as a can of peaches when it's wet. I guess it's not an "all weather" vehicle.

Ah, to potato potatoe around again...of is that pototto? Whatever.

There is an accessory one available that is made from a pellet can.

Don't be so certain - there's an open-element on my Bullitt; no problems in 23k miles even in driving-rain. But the "paper" isn't actually paper, but a sythetic fibre, and is supposed to be washable and reusable.

"Custom Vibration Operation"? I will say one thing or maybe two, Harley Davidson's paint jobs are impeccable. The other thing I found amazingly odd when I entered the racing part of Harleys web site was nothing about the Roadracing? Nothing did I miss it?

H-D isn't involved in Road racing Moke. I guess flat track and drag racing isn't racing to you.

I believe that is their problem, they need to be involved in roadracing. Maybe thats why they can never compete, the Factory is not involved.
You'd think because they have so much racing heritage they would want to dominate all forms of 2wheeled racing. Guess they dont consider roadracing, real racing? And for your ignorant comment you get this,...Where do you think most of the American roadracers started from.

A little bit more history for you is Harley "was" involved in roadracing with a Factory machine dont you remember the VR1000? I think that was a Harley!

Flattrack racing. Most of them started there.
