I just did not like the way the rear mount worked. A u clamp? Really?
Then to have a "rubber" mounted engine with a solid mounted crash bar to it and the frame really boggled my mind.
People act like this bike weighs twice what it does. I lift people who weigh as much as this bike at work. (No, not alone). A crash bar for these does not need 6 points of contact. Hell, the ones on the goldwing only have two.
Anyway, just thought you might find it interesting.
