Yeah, the infotainment stuff is nice I guess, but wearing a helmet, fairing mounted radios sound crappy, so it wouldn't do anything for me.Some Nice Improvements but until see some Crank, Cam Tensioner and Primary Corrections won't see my rushing out to get one .. Guts before Bling ..
It is amazing how much bigger Americans have gotten over the years. My wife and I toured a war ship once and they listed the men's height and weight and everyone was under 6' and 150 lbs or so. Seemed odd, but then I weighed a lot less as a kid too. Maybe the Navy only selected smaller guys that fit into the limited spaces?Same old ergonomics designed to fit the average American back in the 50's who was significantly shorter on average in the bell curve.
It's not that I can't hear it, it's that the fidelity sucks. It'd be okay for listening to talk radio I suppose, but for music, fahgitabotit. Might as well put a counterfeit set of Dr Dre Beat headphones on the outside of a fishbowl if you want that groove. And I've listened to the stereos on Goldwings, Visions, Cross Countries, Ultras, it don't matter, they all sound muffled and flat to me.I have no trouble with a helmet on my XC.
Great point. They are considerably heavier to lift off a stand than a Vic. A while back I saved the Vic during a low speed turning maneuver and was shocked at how easy I could keep my 800 lb beast from tumbling over. I'm sure I couldn't have done that with a Harley.I sat on my buddy's Ultra Glide Classic yesterday and that damn thing is so top heavy you wouldn't believe it.
Read recently that the two worst brands for reliability issues were Harley and BMW. Oddly, those are two top sellers.Love the look of the Harley's
Nice add ons
But Harley better understand that if they don't fix there reliability issues there going to need more than candy to keep there clientele .. .. ..
The candy war is on. See what Vic does next.....
That makes a lot of sense I would have to agree.Read recently that the two worst brands for reliability issues were Harley and BMW. Oddly, those are two top sellers.
The person relaying the information did make an interesting comment. Basically he said that given most Harleys are sold to people who ride gently and infrequently. They also tend to overlook the functionality of their machine. BMW riders OTOH are FAR more likely to go long, hard, and dirty and be peeved at any little thing that doesn't work as advertised. As such, it is kind of unfair to compare the commentary of the two groups directly if one desires meaningful results.
