Mmmmm Yeungling. Can't get that stuff out west. When I fly to our office in FL that's the first thing we do is get a 12er of "Young things."

Ahhhh, Wasatch Brewery!

When I was on my honeymoon up in Park City, we hit the brewpub regularly.

I don't remember them having the names they have now. I'm a Porter kind of guy. You'd think I'd remember 'Polygamy Porter' if I was drinking it with my bride...

Anyhow, (and remember, this is WAY pre-9/11), I managed to bring two cases of a few Wasatch brews back on the plane as carry-ons!

Just before I got to Atlanta, I (finally) realized I had a real problem. How the heck was I going to get those two cases from Point A to B?

Fortune smiled on me. For some reason, there were at least a dozen wheelchairs at our arrival gate. I asked one of the employees if I could move one to another gate, and they sort of nodded. Good Enough!

I got some great double-takes on the way...

We don't get Wasatch here. But, I'm a BIG fan of Sierra Nevada, and every time I feel 'special', I treat myself to a sixer of their Porter.

A cool Porter and a Punch cigar, and I'm in Heaven!

Oops. This has absolutely nothing to do with Star bikes, does it?

Let's not forget all the fine Karl Strauss beers from San Diego and of course the Stone Brewery in Escondido makes some amazing strong brew. The tour is free and by the time you're done sampling, you're trashed.

I can hardly stand the taste of beer any more, it's strangest thing.. Except for a bottle of Samual Smith's Outmeal Stout or one of their Imperial Stouts or Nut Brown Ale I rarely touch the stuff anymore.

I usually have a 6'r of Newcastle in the garage fridge for company but most of the time if I want a drink I have Whisky on the rocks or some Bombay Saphire and mineral water.

Oh yeah, this is M/C related because I use the bike to go to the likka' sto'......

Default Biggest seller of not quite so large displacement bikes

Hmm... they did't turn it into the world's biggest seller of large displacement motorcycles. It already was one.

They turned it from undisputed large displacement cruiser market leader to, erm, not-so-large displacement cruiser market leader. They are making 0.3 million bikes a year and borrowing money from Warren Buffet with 15% interest.

Worst is they lost the lead both in lbft and ci. This already shows in ever so slight changes in attitudes. Why Mercedes and BMW are top of the game today is because they made sure nobody passed them by.

And that's a "standard" touring model, the Ultra and Classic offer tons more stuff stock. What more do you want them to do?
To answer your question, I want them to do an engine with proper grunt. Everything else is for sissies.

Well my pale and sickly friend, it hauls my somewhat portly backside around with aplomb over hill and dale........I think the issue of more power in a stock TC96 engine is resolved by a generous application of throttle. I regularly run mine up to near 5krpm and have never felt the bike to be underpowered in any way shape or form. In fact having had everything from a stock 74 inch, stroked & flowed 80 inch, breathed on TC88 inch and now a box-stock TC96 inch Harley Big Twin's I can say with some conviction the the 96 definately hauls the freight.

My own experiance has been people barely go above 3 k rpm then spend a sh*t pot of money modifying their engines for "more power" because of some percieved lack when they're not even using what they have to start with .
