Sounds like loads of fun, Sean.



One of the things I like most about this site is that you guys are not afraid to test, and admit to enjoying, a wide range of machinery -- scooters, cruisers, naked bikes, race bikes, tourers, whatever. Hell, its all good!



BTW, I wanna read more about your attemts to smoke the squids on Angeles Crest with the scooter!



Cheers

Bob

Roadcraft and Righteousness

Ask not what motorcycling in your country can do for you - ask what you can do for motorcycling in your country.

This is the Harley rider’s mandate every time he takes to the open road. Sometimes his task is short and sweet, like storming a rough bar on the edge of town and clearing house. Other times his mission is long and perilous, like a grueling posse through the uncharted badlands that ends in a dusty ghost town with a showdown at high noon. Then the next tour of duty could be to command a squad of heroes on a daring search and rescue against all odds.

This is roadcraft and righteousness of the highest order - raw masculinity at wide-open throttle. It’s all the stock in trade of a stout and hearty man who plays a rough and tumble game for keeps. The Harley rider takes the same place on the American highway as his country does on the world stage. His principles are not open to negotiation, his actions have no hesitation and those who counter him face devastation. He tenders the old fashioned currencies of vengeance, vendetta and vindication, and all sales are final.

Here we have the spirit and temper that define the core truths of genuine American motorcycling. This is high stakes brinkmanship on two wheels and whether the dueling is by pistols or pistons, all rights are reserved and all wrongs are avenged. The ways and means of all this are the rigor of frontier justice, the crush of heavy-duty muscle and the barely restrained fury of the screamin’ eagle. And no second chances are given here - only a few words are spoken before a few bones are broken.

Let every other motorcyclist know that the Harley man shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any brethren and oppose any atrociteur to assure the survival and the success of American motorcycling.

And do it all in staggering style.

WOO-HOO! Return of the Highwayman!

However, the quality of this post is far below some of his past work. Where's the blind Asian Atrocity Cycle bashing? It seems diluted in this post.

You'll get that "staggering style" after "storming" the bar for too long. Lets keep her green side up, 'eh Highwayman?

Re: Roadcraft and Righteousness

Ask not what motorcycling in your country can do for you - ask what you can do for motorcycling in your country......By riding any brand you wish.

Sometimes his task is short and sweet....Like his prison sentence.

Other times his mission is long and perilous...Like his grade school career.

Then the next tour of duty could be to command a squad of heroes on a daring search and rescue against all odds....copying ( And dressing like ) Power Rangers is his favorite pastime.

He tenders the old fashioned currencies of vengeance, vendetta and vindication, and all sales are final...As he works out the terms of his probation with a Judge.

Here we have the spirit and temper that define the core truths of genuine American motorcycling....And uses that spirit as he peels off his "chaps" for his rendevous with Serge at the Motel 6.

the crush of heavy-duty muscle and the barely restrained fury of the screamin’ eagle...The only scream louder is his as he rides the baloney-pony.

The real Harley experience: Pucka-ta-pucka-ta-pucka-ta...CLUNK ( 1st gear )......Puuuucka-ta-pucka-ta-pucka-ta..CLUNK ( 2nd gear ) , Etc.

I'm not really feelin' the true Highway vibe on this one...maybe it's because since he last posted, I've sold out to buy a bike from Adolf's cousin. That's got to put me right there with the asian atrociteurs, right?



But the fundamental premise of this article is YAMAHA drag racing! Where was the "their filthy Jap bikes go down the strip sideways, just like their eyes" schpiel?



Gentlemen, I submit to you that *this* is an imposter!! (murmur, murmur, murmur)



I call on the true Highwayman to come down from his Fortress of Solitude and put a stop to this defamation of his name, and lift the oppression of the good people of Gotham.



In the end...there can be only one way of determining the veracity of this man's true identity. Bring out...



The COMFY CHAIR!!

I can't believe they let you race these without arm chaps! Fringe may be optional, but the having the chaps on for the safety alone is worth it. Don't you guys read the specs on those things?

Re: Roadcraft and Righteousness

That "short and sweet" job you're talking about, Trailerman, would be any of those microsecond rolls in the hay you provide for the slobbery easyrider "babes" you wallow with. That is, if you do like women... we're not so sure.

My uncle fought at Saipan with the USMC. After the war he rode only Triumphs and hated Harleys.

I guess he's not masculine enough for you, huh? You manly man you.

You really are a pathetic loser Trailerman.

Where is that DD214 Trailerman? We're still waiting.

Damm! Everything I read about the Warriors makes me like them more and more. Now, if they would only offer one without those ridiculous forward foot controls.

Maybe there's a market for kits that move the cruiser foot controls back to a reasonably sane position. Wouldn't that be irony?
