    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.

    I think most of us would agree with you. And then when that idiot pulls right out in front of us, we say what the hell is wrong with you, are you blind?:huh

    is that better, or worse than a drunken incoherent ramble typed from a keyboard?

    Worse, because it took more effort. But you make a good point.

    They should have designated that bike the 1200 C Ultra Ugly. :D
