Hey I'm a rugged individualist !! I didn't shave this morning and I wear a filthy HiViz Aerostitch jacket when I ride my bobberized nasty black and dirty Superglide with PoorBoy Custom exhaust pipes....."Ride Daily, Wash Anually" that's my motto!

Don't get more individual than that by gar..

If you weren't rolling your eyes and looked straight at them, you'd see the resemblance.

Default But for.......

......... the (tired-ass styling-exercise) "T-Bar Grille" and the vented hood, this looks remarkably like the C5 Vette. Look at an '06 (couldn't find a pic quickly) that's missing all the "surface action" sheetmetal, and you'll probably agree. Even moreso in-person.

Pathetic. Especially the price. (never thought I'd say that about a Dodge)

As far as I'm concerned, if you can't afford an Aston Martin DB9 then you may as well knock off all the pretense and stick with a Corolla.

All you b!tches are wrong. Everyone copied Karl Friedrich Benz, everything else is just a clone. Stop denying it.

You won't be driving 'em. You'll be pushing 'em!

Of course Uncle Al will be cruising around in a G5.

Maybe while Al is promoting his 'Global Warming' crap, he can manage to get his electric bill under 2 grand a month.

having owned my own shop for some time now I have worked on the many different v-twin offerings. Indian, anything by rev-tech, s&s or the other evo copy's can be called "copies" or "clones". The yamaha-Star motors are quite different. you don't really have much to go on. the brand name is on the motor... perhaps where the importance really lies! vince
