Tucked up in bed (in a garage that needs tidying desperately!)...





I'm loving this bike more and more each time I ride it - it's a hoot!!

Does anyone else get the feeling that Mr. Grumpy feels a tad guilty for jilting his FXDX so soon?

Nice bike, Dixter! I've only ridden the original 'Rod and didn't like the forward controls...now they look to me just a tad too far back...what do you think?

Thanks FB.

I'm 6'3"/34" inseam and find the pegs just about right for me. The seat needs improving (well...needs throwing in a skip tbh) but the riding position's pretty much ok. Did 250 miles on thursday and had no real problems. Best thing, is because the pegs are underneath the rider's backside he/she can vary where to put their weight on a long run, as one would on any 'conventional' motorcycle. Of course any bike's a set of compromises, and I reckon the VRSCR's no better now worse than most.

Only real downer is the TOTAL lack of any wind protection - not even a set of clocks to break up the slipstream. Hit an indicated 145mph the other day. Man...that's hard work.

At least it'll mean my license is safer on this bike....well, only just.

Wind protection is over-rated....

It ain't that I don't love the FXDX:ymca, it's just that I love Honeymoons and dirt bikes better!
