I didn't realize flat black paint is more expensive than a chrome finish...by $900.

But it is dark, and it is custom. How soon you forget!

Rossmeyer set up a "Dark Chrome" sales area upstairs in their FTL shop. It's all done with blacklights, AC/DC posters, and generally googy-weird "dark" stuff. I think you have to have at least 5 tattoos to enter. Bike designers can be such fashion ****z...sometimes I think the journals swap editors with Cosmo.

Their latest Bizzarro World Fashion Forward statment: A cartoonish Pirates of the Carribean logo on that new bike with the tractor seat...the FXDLDARKSUCKA or whatever it's called.

The Motor Company keeps showing real innovation. This bike has not only revolutionary rubber engine mounts but also flat paint.

Now when they lay off people I hope they keep the engineers. At least the other one.

Such harsh words from a Harley owner. How's that 64 horsepower treating you lately?

Ever see those videos of the Astronauts training in the centrifuge...the g-forces contorting their faces as they struggle to remain concious? It's not like that.

A "dark" cruiser should have black, not chrome pipes.
