Very cool looking bike.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I like the lack of blingy chorme, the flat bars and the streetfighter headlights. Looks mean and functional. But I'm sure MSRP is waaay higher than it should be.

interesting take. I find they're really broadening their horizons, keeping with the market moreso than cycle world. An article on black bike week? Seriously, that's outside the traditional box. Not my cup of tea, but nice to see them thinking.

I dunno... if I ever went that route I'd still like to do an Exile bike. Don't think I could do it though. You cease to get what you pay for when you go to the non-Jap cruisers (let alone "choppers") and I think I like turning too much. Looks real pretty though.

The Black Bike Week article I skipped over. I'm sure I'll get around to reading it. I saw the words "bling" and "badonkadonk" too many times when I scanned thru it.

The tech Q & A was worthless unless you had that specific problem on that specific bike. No theroy or explinations behind the problem. Just said, "this is probablly your problem, fix these output bearings."

The "how to stunt" article last month was a joke and pretty dangerous IMO. Literally 2 sentances about how to do a wheelie or a stoppie or a rolling burnout. I'm sure that article lead to several trips to the ER and some rashed plasitcs.

The Mitch Bohem editorials used to be great. They just seem ho-hum and void of any motorcycle passion.

And the "bikes under 10g" was just your run of the mill compairison. No good info at all.

And the "HD womens gear" review just seemed like a wasted page.

i'll agree on most of those points if not all, however they're clearly playing with the format since they switched editors. Change is good, I'm sure they'll settle into more of a groove in a few months. that 10 bikes under 10k sure was a hunk of crap if you ask me.
