You're like the annoying 1-drink-wuss that can't handle a REAL Man's bike, that rides to the Rally in his F-350, then parks, unloads his tricycle, then rolls in the dirt and rides it the next 5-miles to town. Congratulating himself on that "Manly ride" he just completed.

Biotch!
Harley bikes and Ford pickups, boy you must be a AAA life member, you certainly know how to select rides to not get to your destination....

None of my Harleys ever blew up or stranded me. Hondas did though. I see thousands of Harley's touring through Utah each summer and don't recall seeing any parked on the side of the road. No one makes a bad bike any more so you can move forward from the 70's now.

And my buddies Dyna-glide easily outhandles those pigsticker Road Stars and V-Stars. It doesn't ground as easily.

No I'm afraid your little generality doesn't wash.

You cannot compare Road Stars and V-Stars to the newer aluminum frame models such as the Warrior or Liner. Also the dyna wide glide was known for it's common problems with a failing starter clutch - click, click, click like a dead battery instead of firing up.

The fact that you two finger type does not mean I have to limit the amount of content in my posts either.
Opinions are like buttholes? And always thought Star riders were like them. Shows that I can't tell one fake MC company from another. I guess the pinnacle of Yamah...cough Star 'engineering' is an air-cooled, pushrod, belt driven V-twin. I wonder how they ever thought of that, eh butthole?

BAAAHHH, None of these guys can score chicks, their to busy arguing about my harley is better. Since the inception of the Japanese bikes Imo they are better in everyway. The only reason people buy Harleys are to say they have a Harley. No need to look at specs, compair things. If its got that o so important sticker or emblem their suckered in.

Japanese do copy the Harleys the only problem with that is they are better in every way. Speed, performance, and reliability.

Actually, that's not a fact. It's conjecture.

Star riders might be "like" them, but Hardley riders "are" buttholes. What are you new to riding or only pretend to ride as a poser? It all depends on the type of ride you seek. Some riders only want air-cooled, pushrod, v-twin that is belt driven. Good or bad, it creates a unique experience for that certain type of ride. Just ask Kawasaki who just eliminated the shaft drive to go to belt drive this year. Could Yamaha/Star do better? Sure, the V-MAX is a step in that engineering direction but the supply must meet the demand which includes a realistic price point. If no one is going to buy it, why build it and why not try to meet consumer interest which right now happens to be V-twin cruisers? Gotta go where the money is in business. My real hope is that one day the VRF1200, next Gen FZ1 with cross plane crankshaft, and other street bikes step up production to make costly inefficient cruisers a thing of the past. What would HD do then if riding cruisers became passé? Buell? LMAO!

I can't comment. I'm just a snooty BMW rider.
