Hey, no way you're gonna' get me to start taking those same outrageous hallucinogenic drugs you "Harley Road King Road Racers" must be consuming...

One question... You outbrakin' them sportbikes on corner entry when you're on that thar' bad-a** H-D "Road Racing King", whippin' 'em with pure corner speed at the apex, or hammerin' them with that brutal Big-Twin acceleration on the exit?

I really don't get why you are so revved up Dallara?

Are you missing R3B?

Oh how I miss Ernst.....
Come back R3B / Rema in Paluda (or whatever he called himself) all is forgiven.....not.

To be fair, the guy knew a lot but had the attitude of an alligator and the communication skills of a hippo.

And when two male alligators are in the same pond...

I'll give min a break on the communication skills. My dutch isn't too good either.

Of course, all that may have something to do with the "Braking" forged aluminum 17" wheels at both ends along with "Braking" stainless steel discs, the Showa BPF fully adjustable forks, terrific YSS "piggyback" shocks out back, and some other changes to improve its steering geometry...

Of maybe it could just be that it hangs out with another one of my bikes (seen on the trailer with it) from time to time and learns by osmosis.

That said, and remember I love my Harley XR, I still don't have the depth of faith in its reliability that I do in my Yamaha Super Tenere. I own lots of bikes now (a Ducati, a Norton, the XR, my S-10, a couple of Honda's, a Kawasaki, and a bunch of vintage CZ's), and goodness only knows all the other ones I've owned in over 40 years of motorcycling... No bike I have ever owned in all that time has inspired the same kind of trust I have in the Super Tenere. With nearly 29,000 miles on it, all of those in 19 months, I can confidently say I would ride it anywhere without even the slightest concern that it might leave me stranded. It's a rock...

Well if you put that way.

Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind something like that XR. I had a riding bud who owned a farkled out 1200 sportster with scrambler pipes. He really tore up the twisties with that thing...and the pipe sounded great even though they weren't blow you ears drums out 'cool.'

It's extremely comfortable over the long haul, carries a ton of luggage and is very quick and nimble for a big touring bike. Have surprised a lot of riders on "faster" bikes...

Not required to dress like a pirate. I wear the same gear on either bike.

Is that the same road the fella at the GR forum had the bike come over into his lane and put him in the hospital?

On another note, you don't seem to be this way, but as a few others have commented on, I don't see why people think they need to change how they act when they're on a Harley. I remember going to the vibes rally at Appi Ski Area here in my neck of the woods and passing very long lines of Japanese Harley riders in the on-coming lane. When I noticed nobody would return my waves, I kept my hand waving in the air past hundreds of them as a test. I don't know how many hundreds of Harleys I passed, but not a single one waved. Why is it that most people, even Japanese who ride in some of the most brand and size diverse groups, suddenly behave like a tool when they jump on a Harley?

It's one of the craziest things I've ever seen.

Maybe Dallara is posting from his lap top while sitting on his Harley.


(Hope he stays there, It's some funny shit.)

You're exactly right!!! In fact, I was posting while sitting on my Harley... And it was on the *TRAILER*, too!!!

But don't tell anybody about me wearing nothing but my H-D logo chaps at the time, OK?

Nigeria. There is a small upfront fee to have it released and that will also
cover the free shipping paper work. As soon as a US sponser has been arranged
they will send the bike. Your provided account information will be carefully
guarded and as always the blessings of God to be with you.
