No, it was the 620 Dark or something like that, so it was more like a child's toy riding mower.
I don't get it
Jeez, I would have never gotten off the ground.
Your technical jargon confused me a little bit, but is that why they're so fucking slow?
And why do they sound like "potato potato potato" ?
That's the single crank layout talking.
8mph to 48 mph in second gear? The faster sports bike's today will probably do 100mph in first gear.
It is the remnants of a radial engine with only two cylinders remaining.
Now make a version of that with a Harley firing order...
Dunno, why would you.
Nope, you got me there. I only have a HD forty eight, without highway pegs. As a male I wouldnt like to sit in a gyno position and I'm planning on some midpegs next summer. Also I do like to keep control while cornering, that means quick access to the gearshifter and rear brake. As for the cruise ship analogy, we're talking about motorcycles not container ships.
Bet he don't know it or get the pun. Along with most "motorcycle" guys.
no wonder they are so slow....it only fires once per second!
Wasn't there supposed to be a photo thread around here somewhere??

That's Larry, he's a hoot
Hell my antique 1997 Bandit does 85 in first gear at redline
And lowend torque? I can go 25 mph in high gear
I believe the Harley "low end torque" to be a myth based on the fact that they lack power at any RPM range.
And I'm not a "hater" I've ridden Harleys I enjoy them for what they're good at which is IMHO cruising at a leisurely pace. Just don't try to sell me on their "performance"
but where are the potatoes?
