It's a shame they didn't put the pegs where they should be!  Sad

You know, I thought the same thing when I briefly considered one a year ago. Some soft bags and I got a bike for putting around on and the occasional short mileage weekend getaway. That way I could support the American made bike people. But no way on the wind up the pants situation.

Yeah, it is a great looking package with some real performance.  The foot peg placement is completely entrenched in the cruiser market, and could take years to convince that market of the benefit of neutral control positions.  Even then, there will be tons of riders who still prefer the "gynecological" position.

This is not what I expected after Pikes Peak. I am not the demographic you are looking for.

I heard rumors that they are working on a Vtwin sport bike. A loose copy of what Don Canet rode at Pikes peak!!!!!!!!

Yeah, it seems that most Hardley/cruiser riders are always ready for their exam, instead of being ready to actually control a motorcycle.  Lol
