New Harley-Davidson Blackline revealed

This is Harley-Davidson’s new 2011 Blackline, a Softail-based cruiser featuring a back-to-basics styling, new fuel tank and split drag handlebars. The new bike was unveiled in New York last night (Thursday) and follows a recent trend in customising, away from the usual lashings of chrome and colour in favour of a dark ‘old school’ look.   Specification-wise the most noticeable changes are...

sorry

After much soul searching I have come to the conclusion that I am wrong about this bike and all other Harleys, I would like to say sorry to anybody that I may have offended when I made my misguided remarks, and to my Gran,     sorry.

I Hate::::::: Rain / tossers who aint got a clue / but will buy the biggest n best / Sunny sunday riders / bandanas / leather chafs ! / oil on roads / man hole covers on bends ( why!!!)  Camoflage jeans for bikes ( why) knee sliders but cant get the knee down ( why)  kids who do stoppies (only coz I dont have the bollocks to try)supper fast sports bikes with chicken strips ( ha) three wheelers bikes (that could be a great thread) orange HD clobber (yuck) / car drivers who dont pull over to on side so ya can get past. TAXI DRIVERS ( ONLY SOME OF THEM)  / price of petrol... and sooo on .       oh yes SNEVS Gran coz she stinks of piss! and carrots ?

Harley D.......Duuuhhh!!!

It would seem Mr.Harley Davidson that a LOT of people don't seem too like this bike at least on this comments board.:huh:

Nostalgia is a nice thing but when it has been DONE TO DEATH you have to stop and take stock:blink:.

Time maybe to phase the old air-cooled motor out gradually and concentrate on the V-ROD engine.

The bike is BANG up to date and looks cool.you have an engine that is going to waste as you should have at least a dozen different models based around this powerplant by now.

Alos,why not sleeve the engine down and produce a 900 version as you did the 888-1200 XLH series?

A sportster 900 v-rod?:smile:smile:smile

If your going to write a story about a new cruiser at least write it about the right one. Can't believe they missed this bad boy www.autoevolution.com/news/2012-victory-high-ball-bobber-preview-30038.html

what

 Just got in from a ride out over the cat and fiddle to buxton then to matlock bath, then to ashbourne , back to buxton then back to denton near manchester about 150 mile round trip. Not many out especialy harleys . the only time i didnt ride was when there was snow and ice on the roads,Burt a mate did ( HERO ) . and still going to work every day on my bike.

This bike is like all the rest same old same old , they all look the same , park this at the side of any other simaler      harley and try to tell them apart.

Harley davidson's are over priced old technology . They have lost alot of sale due to a masive missed opertunity with the VROD and what they could have done with derivativs of the motor as trriumph have done, but who have made massive in roads in to different areas of the market.
