Splendid, another pip-squeek special. WTF is with the low seat height on bikes now. I'm going to have to sit on phone books just to get some leg room to ride half these new bikes. One big advantage my FLHT has is a taller seat height plus my addition of a Harley Hammock seat that sit's an inch higher and further back.

By the way, what happened to that one fellow that thought Victories were so great? Must be out riding eh?

This video didn't suffer for the lack of commentary about the bike. That stuff is in the article anyway, so focusing on the ride, with a nice musical score, worked very well.

Market research shows that a prospective buyer's first impression of how a bike feels sitting on it has a major influence over the decision to purchase. A low seat height makes any bike feel more manageable.

Ah, So!

I've determined that Chrome, when presented with the images in the threads and videos, refuses to play.

IE however, just works. And I'm not used to that.

Or perhaps this was the stylist's inspiration.

What does the market research say when a bike is a total SK@NK from every conceivable angle?

I guess saying, "It isn't anywhere near as ugly as its big sister!" is faint praise, huh?

So, let's say this one is a 'Two bagger', and the original is a 'Three Bagger.'

And then add it to the list, with fat girls and scooters.

It says market it heavily in Greenwich village and San Fransisco. There's gotta be some place where that swoopy styling is popular.

Star Trek conventions?
