If there were ever a company that proved the principles of micro-evolution it would be Harley-Davidson. Maybe Suzuki too, this year.

Harley, the ultimate parts bin bike maker. 5 frames, 4 engines and how many models?

I saw one of these in orange at the local dealer.

I liked it enough to want one.

Like many (not all) Harley products, it looks cool but has questionable practicality.

Meh, change out the handlebars and you've got a softail custom (FXSTC) they've been selling for decades ... Willy G. is asleep at the wheel. Harley needs some healthy competition to spark real change.

Having extra cool almost always has a cost of some sort...

I'll refrain from pointing out how the whole "paint it black" style started because po' boys like me had to actually build our "custom" bikes out of whatever crap parts we could find laying around. Since 30 year old paint and chrome don't always look the best you just rattle-canned it black instead....fast forward a few years and it's High Fashion..

The more it changes, the more it stays the same...

Yeah, but at least the brakes on the new ones are more effective than that stick we used to use.

I actually tried to run a set of used riveted brake shoes on my chopper, they didn't work very well......
