Well, I've "read" the article now. Excellent work. Quality photography, serious riding to get there and back and lots of very silly bikes. Tell me, why do you Yanks put on a "mean dude" face when being photographed with lots of girls? Wouldn't a silly big grin be more appropriate?
PS That's 2nd post to my own 1st post! I need to get a life.
three-plus-one-rumble-seat tractor mowing racer things! I can cart around my three most esteemed MOtojournalist pals -- SeanAlexander, EBass and dear, demented friend JohnnyB -- and the open-air seating provides enough headroom for the massive egos...
Loved it as I usually do... have been a bagger fan since in high school.... nothing like locking off the throttle, kicking back into the saddle, restin' my arms and feeling the wind in my teeth - when I don't have the windscreen. And the stereo kicks ass - so far better than the RT's, although I have only ridden 100 miles on that girl so far.
I DO think I would never buy into that particular fairing however, because of the wind management... hard into your lower legs and then UP into my helmet and nostils. I AM interetsted in knowing if the Ultra has the same issue w/ that lower fairing... but in the end I think I'll wind up w/ a road king variant where I can easily remove the windscreen for local trolling and sub-1000 mile rides [insert bugs in teeth here] . The convertible gear is awesome for long-distance traveling riders.
The 4th photo,.showing a line of choppers identical except for the paint color and lined up with regimental precision, sums up the "custom chopper" fad for me. Say it with me; "we are all individuals (we just happen to dress, speak and act identically)."
