I wish them all the luck in the world, but where is the market for this?

It looks like the dealer network is mostly NASCAR country which makes sense but 30k is steep.

No dealers in CA or I would go check one out.

I've seen, heard and perched on one. While they are a nice machine, and look great (and these were the two prototypes), I can't see them being worth three Sprint ST's.

That engine sounds great, though!

It's sure a nice bike, but they're nuts if they think they're going to sell more than a few hundred of these. Givi bags, off the shelf exhaust and suspension...you're paying $30k for a really cool motor. No f'ing way, the people with that much budgeted for a bike are going to buy a BMW, Gold Wing, FLHTCUI, etc.

Well, duh! Of course they aren't going to sell a lot of them. But they'll sell all they can build to people who want something different that gets 165hp-185hp that they think they need for sport touring.

No, she was over at Destination Daytona...Rossmeyer's HD Dinny Whirl. Man, she was sweet...she Numba Six for me!!

Which was packed, by the way. It's hard to believe that back in '05 we were looking at design drawings of the place at the Fort Lauderdale store, and the whole area there was nothing but cow patures.
