They lock out too, so you can only lean so far.

It's a trade off I guess. You don't have to worry as much about going down on a patch of leaves on a curve, but you also can't lean in to get out of trouble.

The fact that JSB hates them after riding a few is really rustling my jimmies as I value his opinion on matters of two-wheeled transportation

If you care not about quality engineering and performance, then they're great cruisers. Doubt that there's many bikes that are as comfortable out there..

Personally, those two things are what I value most in a machine I love, which is why Harley is out of the question for me.

Definitely worth a try though, who knows, you might fall in love with them as so many do...

Let it be seen that you are nothing. And in knowing that you are nothing... there is nothing to lose, there is nothing to gain. What can happen to you? Something can happen to the body, but it will either heal or it won't. What's the big deal? Let life knock you to bits. Let life take you apart. Let life destroy you. It will only destroy what you are not.

I was just thinking, strong motorbike preferences are strongly linked to personality and your general style of an active life, i think.

You JSB seem to preference for optimal racing level engineered performance bikes, im sure that coincides with your personality/energy of living life to the fullest, being most extroverted, and high caliber.

Me i like oldschool archaic dualsport engineering for reliability and adventerous versatility and ease of access & inexpensiveness. That definitely mirrors my whole personality /character for an addiction to freedom to go wherever i want, do whatever i want, whenever i want. Thats what matters most to me.

Tripsurfer likes brubruburbrubrub chill crusing bikes. He also likes surfing. Hes all about the chilled out relaxing aspecs of an active life, surfing is like that too i think.

Well you both are right I guess but I care deeply about quality engineering too

Thats why I always buy Honda's. Im an engineer myself for fucks sake

I think part of Harleys appeal is similar to what I like about steam locomotives. They are just so mechanical and enginey (is that even a word)
Also overpriced and kinda gay in some way.
The Harley crowd here in Europe at least is mostly trying to be bad-asses mid-life crisis dudes.

Ach en wee ben ik de klos, met mijn boog schoot ik een albatros...

friend texts me the other day... "just saw a truck smoke a guy on a moped...you're not getting one"

Still haven't made up my mind on what I wanna get.  Might wait till next summer at this point. 

Dunno what happened to the aforementioned moped victim though..guess he was taken to the hospital in a wambulance and everything.  Hopefully he is alright.
