Did you enter some type of 12 step program?

Dang, I totally missed that reference to our only curve.

Just getting a bit more tolerant in my old age (52 in a couple of weeks). I might be joing the aftermarket exhaust crowd with a MIVV setup for the Mutly. I'll probably leave the dB killer in as I don't enjoy annoying the public.

cheers,
melby

I didn't KNOW that, just guessed. I think those old timers threw in a curve every so often out of boredom as much as anything...

I can see it now, run thru the curve, u-turn, run thru the curve... I guess flickable bikes aren't really in demand?

I like just about any motorcycle. I currently own an Ultra Classic Electra Glide and it is great for 1,000 mile days. I plan to add a BMW and do some adventure riding. You can't go wrong either way. The main thing is to get out and ride what ever you own.

There is plenty of rational thought in motorcycling. Do you lift up the front wheel every time the mood takes you? Blast down the interstate at 120 because you can? Drag from stoplight to stoplight, cops be damned?


What you suggest is an excellent post-hoc rationalization for one emotionally-driven decision. Not a description of how the human mind works, even on a motorcycle.

Dealer stink is not limited to HD & BMW, they all stink.

Probably a dumb point here but didn't Harley unitize a drivetrain like 10 years before the japs ever exported their first bike?

I got a quote from the Navy Exchange Sales on a 2013 Road King in TwoTone Candy Orange & Beer Bottle with Striping along with H-D Factory Security System and ABS and ABS Black 28-Spoke Cast Aluminum Wheels and Cruise Control for $20,708. The quote also includes the 5 year unlimited mileage extended service plan w/tire and wheel coverage. MSRP is $22,527. Seems like a pretty good deal.
