Yet another same old debate about Harleys and Cruisers in general.
We all have differnet tastes in bikes, whether you after you full grown race developed bike, or your simple twist and go scooter, what makes it a bike is the two wheels, the open road and the freedom.
No getting stuck in traffic when you can glide through the dense jungle of cars, take a back road and marvel at the stunning views of croydon.
This Harley, yes its expensive, yes it looks like a vintage bike, it can corner, though not lean as far a sports bikem but it's not designed to do that, its all about taking it easy, not trying to out perform others, just merely relax on the open road and enjoy life slowly.
"It doesn't have the power of my Honda", so what, is that going to save you an extra 2 minutes getting to the office on time?
"It has no torque compared to by Ducati - Again so what, it still gets you to 70, with ease, is that extra torque going to make that much of a difference?
Harley is Harley, simple as, they wouldn't have been around for 110 years if they didn't know how to design and sell a bike, and sell it to the people who wnat to ride a Harley.
Again it not for me, not my type of bike, but I do still like a classic!
Bring on another 110 years.
