New Bike= sell out

Well.....
Its slow as hell. (slowest thing i own)
Every time i turn it drags the floor boards.
Does not stop for shit.
Way to quite. and when you rev it it sounds like a tractor.
Yet i have rode it more in a week then i did the turbo bike and the H2 all summer.
I guess i have to admit i am getting old?

Its nice to ride a bike that you can relax on and not have to be worried about the Cops as you are not breaking any laws....

I just read that a lot of guys are dropping Turbos in Miatas - Wait, don't you have a Miata?

Nice ride. I love the fatboys, but those punched holes in the rims r ugly. Would rather have the solid rim, even though they catch the wind like nuts. I sat on a 2011 pretty close to that when I went to see buddy's band at chi-town Harley this last sat. I would have to up the power in those things. Not quick enough for me

And WTF is with Harley and their belt drives?!?! I'd have to change that out also to a chain drive. That belt breaks, your S.O.L. At least a chain, u can fix it temporary

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Arrrrrrr, nice ride matey. Get an emergency belt. You can rip the broken one off and the emergency one goes on with screws. Although I must say I've put thousands of miles on these belts and have never broken one. I've only seen one go bad. It was on a very high hp bike and was quite abused. Now go out and get a genuine HD eye patch.
