I use greenie-weenie pedal power. Its nice to be outside where the air stinks of auto exhaust and my ears can ring in unison with the harleys.

Every few days I see a bird. Those things look scary.

i look at it this way..gas prices is soaring, and its gettin a bit too much to keep feeding a hungry van when i could have alot more fun on a hog. and got a real good deal on it; 1 of few '05's left on the floor. least the harley's keep their value as long as u take care of em.

cool, but you wanna cut that rear cylinder off, nail it next to the front one, stuff two more beside that, throw it all in an ally frame that actually goes round corners, tuck those exhausts up close under the seats, drop the bars a bit, alter the seating position, bang on a fairing, rename it something like Triumph, Ducati etc, then you are getting close to a decent bike http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth when you get free content in the updates; like idle stability, midrange response, etc.

FWIW, my Triumph has carburettors. How quaint.

Yes, a new ride is fun.
I currently have a 2002 Triumph Sprint RS that is a great ride - except that it is killing my back to be pulled over those low bars. A kindly Victory dealer will give me a great deal on a new Hammer model with a stage 3 kit installed. It should do in replacing the Triumph as my commute bike.

Good question.

My wife and I got into a heated debate about the rising costs of gasoline. She's a car-culture-member and can't imagine life without her suv (even though she sees me ride to/from work every single day).

We took some national statistics from a few web sites and came up with some numbers....

18% of americans claim they live within biking distance of thier jobs.

Thats 53,445,419.82 workers who could ride to work.

Cost to operate a car is estimated to be $1.19 per mile.

I'm guessing 10 miles round-trip for these would-be cyclists.

How much money is that per week saved?

$3,180,002,479.29

Consider this:
Our fair city wants to build a new sports arena. The early estimates are $50 million.

A mile of bike path can be built for $20,000.

Thats 2500 miles of bike path, which would shorten the distance-to-work for more people.

Wanna talk about health-care costs and obesity?

Roger that buddy! Here's my idea of a fun VTWIN!

VTWIN (work safe) (http://home.mchsi.com/~mack_rc51/turn_1_b.JPG)

@ Baldie:

Nice bike. Is this your first? "BE SAFE" but always remember that you can be as safe as you possibly can be, but you can't do anything about the cager driving the land yacht SUV talking on the cell, holding a cup of coffee, puffing on a cig, & putting on eye linerin the rear view mirror whilst doing 60MPH

I've mostly stopped ridding on the street because of **** like this, and get my need for speed off on the track.

Like Baldie I've started to ride my bicycle to and from work and am lucky enough to have more than half of the ride be thru a nature preserve, so I am really enjoying the peace and quiet!

Have fun

Hey Badsight-a Hinkley Triumph will match a Nipponese machine any day of the week for reliability and handling. As for having 4 cylinders, UJM are now few and far between in modern Japanese machines (much wider choice in engine designes).
As to why HD buildes the bikes they do is because we can ride over 3000 miles straight from coast to coast. If I start in San Diego California, I go over 800 miles before I get to the Oregon state border. You will notice that all long distance type motorcycles are big, heavy, soft suspedsion behomoths; no matter which country produces them ( the Norton Interstate excepted.).

I just picked up one of these.

2001 Bandit 1200S.
Mine has a Holeshot slip on pipe, tank bra, and the rear fender has been removed. Factory rated at 110 HP, with the pipe, jet kit, and advance plate, it should have a little more. It is very fast. I need to buy a radar detector now.
