arm pits will never smell riding this



This was me at the end of a mystery day ride with a local club I belong to, not my bike of course!

HAHAHA...Maaan! Kiwi, does anyone actually ride that bike?
You might smell okay after a ride, but hoisting a brew might be another story.
Does it "handle" better than the V?

Good for pics though, cool.

I did get a chance to test ride a Victory High Ball. Wouldn't want one as a daily driver but it was fun to ride. Of course the hand grips were only about shoulder high.

...or blood remaining in his lower arms and hands.

Of course to me "long distance" on a Versys is 700 miles in a day. I can't imagine doing 350 miles in a day on a Harley with ape hangers like that.
