Wouldn’t mind a norton for a second bike, but tend to stick to the Jap bikes for reliability

Used to have a triumph, but went onto Aprilia RSVRs for 10 years before having a bit of fun with a KTM Duke.  Knackered back means I now blat about on a Harley 1200 sportster....with an ear to ear grin like some of the sports bikes could rarely match :)

I think I know that smile as I also have a Harley  1340 chop. I seem to ride all the time making the a10 redundant hence the contemplating sale.

I don’t have a Harley, I have two Triumphs because unlike you two, I have no desire to ride down to the Blue Oyster Bar in my leathers and chaps

:lol::lol: Plus you have to be big and fat to drive a Harley. Otherwise they refuse to sell them to you. So i was told, as i would never be seen in a Harley Dealer....:ph34r:

My old neighbor had a,,,,,, I can't say it again. The fat blokes bikes as said above.... He was tall and skinny, and when he went out on his half a dozen times a year for 1 rides. (I admit i wasn't much better on my sports bike. Too much cleaning after..) He looked like an action man figure on the bike. A porky bloke just looks right on a Harley ascetically. To me anyhow... 

I've got my tin hat on so let it role..... :P

Now that's a beauty! :wub: I was a Kawasaki man myself. Lost count of how many Ninja's i had! Great bikes, bar the tank slap on a couple' at high revs in low gears. Used to scare the Shize out of me! I also promised myself a damper but never got round to getting one... We were a 1 car family then, so the wife had the car 90% of the time. So dry days the Ninja came out. Wet days, my 1980's Honda CG 125 (with a top box) came out. Great little bike!:)

lets be clear.

you "ride" a  motorcycle. 

You  "drive" a car,truck, ect. 

I never heard of a Harley ascetically,  

 

and I believe you meant "roll" 

:P

and quite a few Harley owners wouldn't go anywhere near a HD dealership.:lol:

had a go on one when they first came out, blistering performance for a small motor. do you recall the kawasaki triples  I tried one once,,, It was scary as ,'#*  it handled like the frame was broken in several places, the brakes were next to useless, but the power,,,, below  4500rpm it was like a side valve bsa, at 5000 rpm it just took off like a rocket, the throttle was more like "altitude control" you'd be coming out of a corner  and suddenly all that power would twist the frame all over the damn place and the wheel would head skywards. 

they weren't called "widow-makers" for nothing.
