Why HD couldn't have re-engineered the sporty motor with all the knowhow that 50 years of hot rodding produced is beyond me. I think the biking public was ready for an air cooled gear or belt driven OHC v-twin with eight valves, that looked and sounded like a Harley.

Call me a luddite, but this is just another complex water cooled stooperbike that missed the target (for folks who would buy a Buell in the first place).
You...... Luddite

Yeah but now the "Vision" doesn't look quite so...

DeSoto, yeah. It ran like a raped ape, but the body turned to **** real quick in the northeast. Dad liked that car.

Ya know, you can find a better term than "raped ape" to describe oh, I dunno, just about anything.

Yes, here at motorcycle.com we strive to be euphorically politically correct. Instead of "raped ape" the acceptable term would be "an ape who received unwanted sexual advances".

So, remember, there is never a reason to use the term "raped ape", because "raped ape" is insensitive to all apes that have been raped. "Raped ape" is a classless term that is not fitting of a fine, and proper forum. And a forum is serious business for serious topics of conversations where terms like "raped ape" are looked down upon. Just thinking of the term "raped ape" could get you banned from a serious and proper forum. So to conclude, "raped ape" should not be used on a forum as using the term "raped ape" is an insult to all visiting apes that view this forum looking for serious information.

...besides, using the term "it hummed like a two dollar wh*re" is a far more fitting.

Howzabout "The exhaust-leak was so bad, it sounded like a douche-bag full of Motherfcukers.........."

Or, "My GOD! Pulling the flywheel off one of those is worse than a sackful of mashed arseholes........."

Or, upon gazin' at the brolly with the tightest, skimpiest, most sprayed-on-iest outfit you nudge your buddy in the ribs and utter "I'd HIT THAT like the Fist of an Angry God!.............."

I see that some of our members have yet to reach puberty.

Heaven help us when you *do*.

A very cunning way to fool our automated censors eh Mr. Airhawk? So now it looks like we have to "adjust" our little censor program again because of you. Thank you for your kind attention. This will not go unanswered. I went to school in your country, and know your strengths and weeknesses. 您所有看似袋子被锤击的笨蛋!
