Beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous. I love technology when it's at it highest level...even if I can't bolt it on myself (let alone even begin to exploit it).

This kinda of stuff just makes my blood boil over. Seeing it up close is even better. Just lovely!

Really unobtainable,....wish I had the chance at one of these suckers, heard they were fast as hell in a straight line, but crappy on the turns. Any of you guys own one of these? Cuddy?

MOKE, never say never. Things change when you get older, and there are thousands of guys who would 'never own a Harley' that are riding one as we speak. Kinda like the guys that say 'I'll never get married", there is no statute of limitation on changing your mind.

Seems to me that most people with a strong opinion against a certain make or model either have no actual experience with it- ot too much.


For instance, I have a strong opinion against BMW's made after 1995.
I also have a strong opinion against Chinese scooters. people would come in looking for parts the really were made of Unobtanium- like drive chains in weird sizes.

Who knows maybe, but it will be sitting next to a ton of sportbikes. My thing is you just get so much more with a Japanese cruiser. But I can recall one time riding a Harley chopper in Hawaii and I did like it, if I pulled up to the light and the car next to me didnt look over at me, I'd just rap the throttle once and they looked real quick.That was cool!

My late Uncle Richard owned a '69 White tanker H1 500cc Kawasaki triple, nothing sounds like one with chambers, and if you cranked the steering damper down tight enough so it could hardly turn, it wouldn't tank-slap all that bad at speed.

You could do a lot with sixty horses in a 370 lb. package. Swing arm was about the same diameter as a large no.5 pencil. Drum brakes, etc. These are the bkes that if they didn't kill you, made you a better rider.
