As someone in PAR has observed.... that was a different time in America...
I think also that you can be a Patriot, love the U.S. and still respect your enemy. During our involvement in Vietnam you have to realize the enemies' perspective - American troops represented just another foreign power after the French who were invading their country. It was a Cold War chess match played out in their land, in their backyard where of course civilians were a daily casualty. What would you do if this happened in our country ? I'm pretty sure my AR-15 would see some action.
I picked up a Viet Cong themed Tet-Offensive jacket in Tokyo a while back which I have no trepidation about wearing in public, it's definitely a conversation starter - especially at HD themed Biker Bars....

I agree. A warrior that doesn't respect his opponent is not worthy of the title.

Have not ridden it yet. Tired of a total rebuild though. Brakes, wheel bearings, bars, levers, bark busters, tires, top end, kick starter, kick stand, intake, reeds, chain and sprockets, machined the head and cylinder, cleaned the pipe, radiators, kips cleaning, bla, bla bla....

Have a few more parts sitting here that need to find their way onto it, and I need get a jet kit...

Not really, but I have a love/hate relationship with LC4's I just cant shake.

After having the 640 ADV's I have really wanted to try a 625 sxc.
Its basically the same engine & chassis as my 07 ADV but quite a bit lighter.

I would think it would be a real blast.
