I rode 4 Harley's this weekend!

2009_5_fxcwc_vivblk.jpg
Nice bike I am just not a fan of the chopper style, it freaked me out about when I had the forward mounted pegs scrapping through a back and forth 3 turn twistie.

Feels like your riding an under powered 2x4. I am 5'11 and 220 and it is just not meant for me.

Harley's attempt to appeal to the younger generation, it is definately a fun ride. Feels alot like the 919, it can easily wheelie as I was floating the tire as I shifted through the gears. Moves relatively effortlessly through the turns. If there is a demo ride near you ride one it is definately interesting.

This is the bike I was looking for!!! Comfortable as a couch. Faster than most cages. V-twin rumble that makes you soil your pants. All around awesome ride. Great for two up I could ride this any where for any period of time I will own this bike one day!!!!

Harley's suck! We all know it.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Harley riders suck, the prices suck. If I had my dream garage I would want every single one though.

Have you ever rode one? I'm only 5'9", and it feels small. It also has kidney wrenching suspension. But it is quick and the matte colors look cool.

I could have two 919's for that, or a nice 1000RR with 5g's dumped in it, or a ducati with a couple dollars left over for maintenance.

I've actually secretly liking the XR1200 since it came out in Europe. The reviewers may call it garbage, and it may be a Harley but I think I may step out of the closet and say.....


I like that Harley.

Damn, I feel better.

Two wheelin for the feelin.

Yep , you could , but , it will never be a Limited production bike that actually has the signatures of the people who built it inside the airbox cover -

Its all a matter of what you want out of a motorcycle, if you want a Harley ,get a Harley, if you want a Honda , get a Honda - And if yo uget a Ducati, your gonna need all the extra cash you can get , wholly cow those things acessories are out of thie world ! Slip ons for the wifes Hypermotard was 2k ! Slip on's ! Not even carbon fiber, they are S/S with a Carbon cover on them !

It was a sweet bike no reason to feel bad about it, I wish I had more time on it, especially unsupervised.

I want every motorcycle, I'm not really one to discriminate against bikes, just the riders, if I had the money to buy that vrod I would.

I'll take a donation of the Aprilia and the Hypermotard off your hands so you can free up so space in your garage to fit the fatbob.

I road a 1958 Duo Glide for 12 years. My knees got so bad it sucked to kick start it. I got a 1987 1100 Sportster to ride 3 years till I got my now fatboy. At 6.1 240 Lbs I looked and felt stupid on a Sportster. I sure love my fatboy, 72,000 trouble free riding!!

I've been riding my pretty 1997 Sportster "1200 S" for a month now. It is what it is. ( A fun toy) And it ain't no Honda or BMW.( Not by any means.)
Oh, yea, it's still raining.

I love my street bob. The fat bobs are really nice too but I like my mini apes. They don't look right on a fat bob.
When you ride a Harley the destination is just the excuse to ride.
