I have to say you guys that like Harley surely love to pay for a name. I will never own a Harley just for that reason. I'll build my own cruiser when it comes time for one or I'll own a Honda VTX 1800 thats liquid-cooled. That bike blows away any Harley IMO and costs alot less.

I know you diehard Harley guys would never own such a machine because you would have to get ride of 100s of HD t-shirts and wouldn't have anything else to wear.

All jokes aside, I say "whatever", ride what you want to ride and love. All I was saying is you won't catch me owning one unless it was free.

SloRoll, you forgot one thing, metric maybe but.... you don't need tools with jap bikes cause they don't break down like the harleys.

Tony, I'm not knocking it at all. Read above I said "ride what you want to ride and love". My bro has a harley and I give him the same shit. It's not going to change his mind.... he loves harleys. I'm just pointing out why I personally wouldn't own one and the reasons/things I prefer in a motorcycle.

This about Harley Screamin' Eagle and quoted from motorcyclist.

"If torque is the name of the game, the biggest Harley is a player. Strapped to the unflinching Motorcyclist dyno, the factory 103-incher gets with the proverbial program right off idle, churning up 80.3 foot-pounds of torque at 2500 rpm. Hold the throttle open from there and 84.4 foot-pounds of torque arrive at 4250 rpm, followed by 72.8 horsepower at 5500 rpm. Comparing that with the elementary Twin Cam 88's output of 75.1 foot-pounds of torque and 66.3 horsepower makes Harley's biggest big-incher look pretty good, especially if you concentrate on the bottom of the torque curve. Still, if anyone says VTX, change the subject. At 3000 rpm, Honda's 110-inch mega-twin peaks a 100.3 foot-pound reading--nearly 16 more than the Twin Cam 103."

I'm sold on this Honda and I don't even like honda's that much..... I wouldn't need a tag under my legs to change the reason to buy this bike.

Thing is I can get one of these bike for around 8-9k brand new. Hard to pass up a value like this. Numbers do the talking for me in both HP/TQ and Dollars.

Chris, I don't have any 2004 XB9R's, only 12R's. MSRP on a 2005 9R is $8650, I can do you a 2004 12R for $9495 (MSRP $10995 minus 1500). If you really want a 2005 9R stop by and I'll work out a deal for you on the first one I get. Sam
