this much better
but I need pics
Is it sport touring?
Free your mind
And your bike will follow
Blue sky above now
Motorbike leans into curve
Sport touring is wow!
Remember lads, all haiku must reference nature in some way
I smell a trap.
I did look at the wiki entry.
Way too fucking controversial for this thread, that's for sure.
keep em coming
lets enjoy the ride
the st thru the country
a trip down under
a joy to behold
That sounds more like cunninglingus than sport touring. :)
FXRT Sport Glide!
Look at all that ground clearance!
Impossible. If it says Harley-Davidson it can't possibly be used for sport touring.
Sport touring was fun
But now it has jumped the shark
A fashion statement
Sport tourers have become a new life style vehicle for riders who don't want to be outlaws or rangers or racers.
Maybe we could call them cannon ballers
WaveyD, how about: Corellian Test Pilot.
I like that almost as much as Cannon Ballers.
DogsRoot, nice haiku...missus Sweetwater was
Sadly, I think you're right.
Sport-Touring started out like this:
Now, look what it's become...
The guzzi in that photo is not unlike a standard Harley 883 Sportster, which according to some folks here can't possibly be a sport tourer. In fact, the Sportster has more power.
Another lovely Sport Tourer of days gone by...
Note the luggage rack.
Not really much of one by modern standards.
Would nonetheless love to have one in my garage...or living room.
All polished up and in the living room for sure.
Point was, "sport touring" has it's roots in bikes like V7 Sport, 850 LeMans, R90S, 850 Commando, whose riders added some simple luggage and went touring on thier sporty bikes.
p.s. I've ridden both, and I'd take the V7 Sport on a curvy road every time.
I got it. I too would take the guzzi for the sheer character factor, but my '06 883R was a close second. I've made the decision to buy a new V7 and a new 883 Iron a hundred times, but I have too many other things I want to do financially right now. Either one would get some suspension mods and soft luggage, and I'd have no problem going anywhere on either one.
