Why did you buy this motorcycle? OK, I admit, the reason I bought it is because it is fast Yea, I told my wife all of the crap about it being safe and having lots of lights, and all of the other stuff. But I just got back from a ride, "back roads." I did full trottle, 6K rpm shifts. I scraped the peg in a turn And I repeatled went from 60 to 90 as fast as it would do it Yea, it's brutal, and I like it. "I make the payment." I will also take the oppurtunity to wax other bikers especailly if it has HD on the tank. Be prowd and let you know that you ride the true "king of the road." Let's face it, motorcycles are not safe, but it makes me feel alive, and happy. Next time you ride with a HD buddy. "Blow his door off repeatedly, util he believes it :wink: ."
