My bike weighs 715 lbs wet and doesn't have floorboards. Did you know a 650 Burgman will do 105 MPH? Not bad for a step-thru scooter.

Hey, Larry, good on ya for sticking up for yourself among these wolves. I like your obvious enthusiasm for motorcycles and how you seem to know a lot of stuff. And I have absolutely nothing at all against scraping pegs on a cruiser. However, I can't imagine why anyone would want to ride ANY motorcycle without gloves. Almost invariably, your hands will hit the ground in a crash. Human skin has minimal abrasion resistance...

Thanks for your kind words, Kevin. I live and breathe motorcycles. If motorcycle.com hires me I promise to always wear boots and gloves. When do I start? Seriously, I'll leave right now and head that way.

Honestly, I have not yet ridden the new Cross-Dressers from Victory. I have ridden everything else including the Vision, but when the chance came to ride the Xbikes I didn't have time and now it's too cold to enjoy it. My local dealer is all one could ask for. His wife bought a Cross Country and she has an 11 second 8-Ball. Ya gotta love that in a woman.

Wanna see an 11 second pass?
Kudos for having the chops to ride your bike at the track. You do realize you aren't the typical cruiser rider, right?

Larry gets extra points for standing up for himself and not going off in a huff like a whiny biatch. Whether he can take Klazy Ken's "Get Rich Today" Internet Sales Seminar is another question.

Remarkable, you spend 27 pages beating your chest about how much better Victory is than Harley then ask everyone to lighten up?
