would you believe that I've just bought a Harley? Street Rod to be exact

    Okay, okay, technically I co-signed for a Street Rod but realistically it was just pencil-whipping so that my protege can get the Street Rod financed at a decent interest rate. I guess I can't fire his ass now or else I'd be really owning a Harley and that would definitely cramp my style. Hehe.

    Anyhewww, he's not brand new to the sport but it is his very first and brand new bike that he bought all on his own in the same color that he wants and the model that he wants. Just look at the kid's face. That said it all. 'Tis brought joy to my jaded heart.

    You must be really close to your protege, no way I would sign for someone else and I know those things ain't cheap.

    Thank God it's not a "real" Harley. This thing actually has an engine that makes more horepower than a 50-cc moped.

    If you are looking for high horsepower, you wouldn't be shopping for a Harley in the first place, now would you?

    As for the VRod, I won't knock the bike, but I do think it should have been a spin-off and sold under another brand (like the Buell bikes are now) and not just labeled another Harley.

    I fully concur. I would even go as fast as having other dealers sell them and not at a Harley dealership.

    A Norwegian friend of mine is coming over here for vacation in a couple of weeks and has rented a V-Rod for a week, I'm curious as to what it'll do.

    That bike is absolutely magnificent! I'm too big to be comfortable in that rider posture but that bike is .... man jewelry.

    No, I already said it wasn't a real Harley. That's a coolant leak from the Korean made radiator. :p

    Actually it's oil leakage from the Jap forks.

    Please... those forks only hold 11.4oz per side. There is a LOT more fluid on the ground than that!

    I know, I know!

    The new owner tried to fill the "gas tank" and that is what didn't get soaked up by the air filter!

    It was water from the sprinkler if you must really know.

    Hell, it's a Harley, real or not, so the damn thing is leaking like a sieve everywhere.

    Saddle up go to In-N-Out Burgers and then hit the hwy and go somewhere to get some Slyders....Crystal is not a real substitute, so you must find a St with "White Castle!" Nice looking machine. I was being nice and thought he washed his new bike. I like the fill up explanation though.
