If your going to do "that", it's good to do it in the dirt and grass.

Wow I had my first Harley ride on Wednesday and it didn't go anything like that LOL. Put about 20 miles on an 07 Heritage Classic. I was very very impressed. I will no long dog Harley Davidson, the bikes are wonderful. It seems some of the owner are not so. But really it was a very nice bike. Probably the best shifting transmission I have ever seen on a motorcycle, period! Oh and it had very quiet pipes on it. Its for sale if anyone is interested.

Here is the bike I rode.


ST1300, Versys, SV650S

HD has amazing fit and finish but IMO the suspension on their bikes sucks, it is way too stiff, necessitated I guess by the 1 inch suspension travel on a lot of their bikes. Their engines produce a ton of torque but run out of steam at 4500RPM and vibrate like a paint shaker. I found my hands were in pain after half an hour of riding a HD due to vibration.
