what do you call them Water Hog or Water Buffalo
either way am sure there is more to come and I believe when the road glide comes back it will have water.
do the use pink or green antifreeze

According to the pictures I've seen, it's an orange antifreeze

But when it starts leaking, it will become a 'bubblehead'

Mock now oh ye of little faith but mark Pop's words. This is the watershed moment. Once the kingdom of air cooled Milwaukee falls and converts the unbelievers in it's ranks, so shall follow Polaris and the other unwashed. Enjoy your freedom from glycol while you can for the day nears when you too will fall to your knees before the power of the radiator cap.

We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go

He is absolutely correct. Everyone understands that air cooling is inferior to water cooling. Victory and Yamaha both know it but understand that radiators are viewed negatively in the Harley crowd. As soon as the Harley crowd accepts radiators on their bikes we'll start to see them on every bike. Every motorcycle manufacturer in the world knows that water cooling will increase an engines longevity and performance. Nobody is making air cooled bikes because it works better than water cooling. They make them in hopes of luring some customers away from HD.

If you made that up, you should copyright it. So much better than "twin-cooled." Makes it sound like some titty fan you take to church.
