i ride a elect. glide for work (STATE TROOPER) and it tears up a belt about every other month and this bike only has about 90 horses and is weak as a 250 ninja. so yes the shaft is better than the belt. hd riders say that because theirs has a belt.. if it was better than why does buell racers change to a chain instead of belt?
i think hd is trying to get daytona back! isnt that whatstarted it all there? a motorcycle race that hd hasnt had a bike that was competative there for the last 25 years or so. Most all other bike companies have a full range of bikes that sale but hd. the buell is a good looking bike that if had a tl1000r or rc51 motor init would be three times the bike. if hd would just come out and say what they are trying to do(get another angle on a different market) i dont think hd fans would mind. they arent going to ride a sport bike any way!!!!!
