This fits right in with that EasyRiders show article a week ago. Cartoon bikes that are caricatures of themselves. Push the mirrors in so far you can't see anything. Lower the fender so there's no suspension at all. Black the bike out so nobody can see it in traffic at night. Take whatever guages you had and make them the size of a pencil eraser.

If being a "Harley Guy" means throwing common sense out the window in the name of style, I'm damn glad I sold my Low Rider before they went completely off their rocker boxes.

Let's sing along!

"Well muh Harley's gonna put me in the movies.
Yeah, my HD'll make a big star outta muh-eee.
They're gonna make a film 'bout a man who got no bray-ains.
And all I gotta do is: act naturally."

Hey, that's not fair! Suspension travel (5.1" F; 3.6" rear) isn't bad for a cruiser, and the new gauge is easier to see at a glance than dropping a chin way down to see instruments on the top of the tank.

While it ain't some all-new platform with a new giant motor, it's a really cool cruising machine.

"The man with one watch knows what time it is. The man with two is never sure......"

What about the man with two watches and a sneer that says "I don't give a F-Bomb what F-Bomb'n time it is."?

Well EXCUUUUSE me for trying to have a whining *****y rant here. Geez, what good is the internet if unqualified nobodys can't vent their meaningless opinions about things they have little or no knowledge of?

Actually I've always preferred the Phuck Owens version:

Well they're gonna put me in the movies.
Yeah they'll make porn star outta me.
They're gonna make a film about a man who likes vaginas.
And all I gotta do is: act naturally.

Ken,

Your latest 'Fact' (regarding Superman and sex) is from an old favorite article, "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex."

Google it. It's great reading!

Harlen Ellison, IIRC. (I didn't RC. Larry Niven) I just make this **** up off the top of my head or out of disassociated scraps of memory. Shut up. "Research" would spoil my Zen.
