Actually, you never know with Harley. They just might try such a wacky thing. The only differences between the VRSCA and the VRSCB was the black frame and the bars (along with assorted paint schemes.)



Eh, guess that one didn't work out too well.

After going over the datails, I think I liked the VSRC-B better. In bigger pics, the newer exhaust looks odd, and while the fairing might grow on me, not sure about it right now.



The -B also engine powder-coated the engine, didn't it? At least in the pictures I kept, it looks like the recesses were.



The lower bars with the Nightrod would be nice for Lil' 67" me.

Yeah, but the riding position on the A sucks. The bars on the B, I think, were an attempt to make it more suitable for more riders. But those forward controls are WAY out in front with a very odd position for the brake pedal. I doubt the B was much different than the A.



I'm pretty sure the B did have a powder-coated engine. But again, all of that is purely cosmetic, and in my eyes, does not make for a new model.



The mid controls/lower bars would probably make for a for more manageable bike. Although, I'm surprised that they don't compromise ground clearance.



The flyscreen, or some kind of wind protection, is a must on that bike if you ask me. The new riding position may help it in this respect, too. Oh, and at least it doesn't have those silly disc wheels.

I see your points. Maybe after I win the lottery, I could pick up a the -D and just swap in the -A's exhaust.



I always prefer the black powdercoating, largely due to my dislike for chrome. I don't mind shiney highlights, but an entire shiney bike is something else.



Disc wheels never bother me. They where different, and kind-of fit the dragster look, IMO.

f4 tamburini on 101 outside of san rafael

funny- I was dropping off my ex250 @ marin cycleworks on saturday, and saw someone on a tamburini F4 getting on 101 going south! i wonder how many tamburini's are in the SF area? it sure was an insanely beautiful thing to see.

Re: f4 tamburini on 101 outside of san rafael

It had a Monroe Motors plate frame. The guys were in the 50ish range all Dainseed up. I didn't want to mention the 3rd guy. He was on some pile of Mille Factory. I know it's not a pose off, but, the F4 Tamburini is eye overkill. I think I'd slum around on a nice RC30. Rare and classy. Doesn't have that "just refinanced" look to it.

I'm with ya on the chrome thing. My blingometer reads nearly zero.



The problem with the disc wheels is that they're heavy and they really do act like sails. Ride that thing in a decent crosswind. It sucks.

If I'm not mistaken, I think Buell is responsible for those and they tripped over that idea during the devolopment of the XB12X. there was an article in CW about the new XB12X i just dont remember how did that go exactly, but pretty sure Eric is behind the easier clutch pull (I didint know it needed improvement) and tranny update.
