Default twin cooled

after years of riding Harleys, and a lot of them, I was one of the few wanting a water cooled Harley. Now they have a partially cooled motor, but they just cant say "water cooled". Makes me laugh! One major change tho, they have added even uglier colors for 2014. Glad I made the switch to victories.

Well then stay away from Starbucks!

Oddly, I never thought much of brown as a color for vehicles, but I kinda liked last years HD anniversary colors. I really like this new XCT:

I think that pic is VASTLY improved by the darker lower half, but I still don't really dig the chocolate-milk top. Maybe the Sunset Red or Boardwalk Blue, but not that tanish-brown.

It's a good thing different people like different things, or it would be a very boring world indeed.

Three things we can agree on! When you stick to motorcycles, you're an OK guy Saddle.
