That is no Harley. It is a water cooled shaft drive POS Suzuki Boulevard M50.
no doubt! that bastard! all them kind are the same...
what...for his sense of humour?
C'mon you should have known it wasn't a H-D.....no guardian bell, no bandana, no pirate gear........
I do believe at that lunch discussion, I was not the only inmate that had done said feat on pedal bikes.
Ours was for the "storming of thunder ridge" ride back in the day. I was going to paste the link, but apparently the "new" storming of thunder ridge doesn't follow the same course at all, and according to online this year will be the fourth even though I participated back in the 90s.
And yes, apparently people on cruisers get very mad, rev their engines and are very certain they don't want to let pedal bikers pass them. Unfortunately gravity is a bitch, and you really can ROLL on a pedal bike downhill. As was mentioned, lots of insults, etc etc. They finally went on their confident that they had told us. It was about 5 minutes till we were stuck behind them again in our VW van.
Where's TandemGeek when you need him? Bet he and his stoker have done some FAST descents.
I have on our tandem. The look on cage driver's faces is priceless when we pass on the left on a steep downhill.
All cruisers are "Harleys" to me - except for those alien spaceships that Victory puts out.
Agreed. This got me to thinking though, which is worse, to actually ride a HD or to aspire to ride something similar?
i personally don't get h-d's; i found that driving my plain-jane gen-1 scion xb to be far more entertaining than riding a h-d.
but, different horses for different courses - those who enjoy riding h-d's are certainly entitled to their fun...
The lack of protection for that little girl is almost criminal if they have to lay 'er down.
I can't quite make out the logo on the side, but I think it says Fire Blade.
He got stickers or complete bodywork from Europe. Or maybe he imported the entire bike. Across the sea the CBR900 to the current 1000 are called the FireBlade.
Our Honda Superhawk is called the Firestorm.
Or he could be a Canadian. Has a Hindle muffler.
I have a seriously funny Canadian joke here, but it's political... so, alas, I will keep my mouth shut and not risk the Banhammer of Doom. :eek1
Edit: Okay, it's not really that funny. Maybe slightly amusing.
We Canucks have a pretty good sense of humour so go on and tell it. I think you are going to get far less reaction then if you tell a HD joke..........
Hypothetically, the joke would have been: he has to be Canadian since he's leaning left.
Which could be taken as a political joke. But since I only hypothetically told the joke, maybe I won't get banned.
See, it wasn't really very funny. I've spent more effort than it was worth, I'm sure. But there you go. It cracked me up.
