I haven't had time to go look at the particulars, but on the surface I like this idea.



Gotta give'm credit, it seems as if they are trying to be inventive here.



They are even listening to our calls for an American sport bike, anemic as it turned out. But, by golly they listened.



Viva HD!

I wish I'd thought of this when I picked a screen name. "BlackPowerRanger" Sort'a has a ring to it? ;-)



One question; How do you fix tattoos damaged by road rash?



Don't feel bad, I hate metric cruisers too. With that said, screw it, lets forget all this and just ride!!!

Hey, while we're "Contacting Harley" please tell'm that we non cruiser folks need between 130 and 140 ponies where the rubber meets the pavement on those Buells.



Then it needs to be easier to add our electric goodies, and other adventure touring gizmos. You know, Scream'n Eagle except to make the bike more rideable in more extreme conditions. Heck, I use my K1200 like a truck. And it's used all year. I see no reason your product couldn't do the same thing but with a hotrod attitude.



Do this, and the rest of the world can stop making bikes as far as I'm concerned. I'd own nothing else. I'd bet many others would do the same.



Are ya listening?

Re: Why in the world should HD cater for non cruiser folks?

Really? Cool! So that means I could jump aboard a VRSCR and adjust the windscreen for a cold day, plug into the outlets for heat and radar protection, and I would have power antilock bakes! And depending on which K1200 you were talking about, this bike's hundred twenty something HP will out perform bikes with one hundred sixty something HP. That's really truly cool!

If I run out and get one will I have to dress like I'm on my way to a leather bar to ride it? Or will my Joe Rocket gear do?

"infantile imagination", you don't know the half of it! ;-) That and I truly love getting this stuff stirred up.

Agreed, nothing, but nothing is as versatile as a twin. I absolutely love the way they pull in any gear and at any RPM. Some of the twins I've ridden, I swear could have done without all but three gears. A fantastic MC engine design!

As for the ABS thing; Why do i need it? Because I'm Old and slow. That's why! I need every bit of the reaction time it gives me.

BTW, Great retort......When I have more time we can debate some more...For now, it's 50 degrees outside, and I've got a 55 mile ride home. Actually it looks like I'll be able to ride all week. The weather gods are smiling! (I'm in WV)

C'ya
