I Know it is a Repost But I Want it

Plain and simple, I mis "Hooliganism"

I an REALLY thinking of selling the HD (perfect time of year too) and plunking some $$ down in this thing

Fuck I like what I see - Small enough to have fun and big enough to have fun - I always said if I eve got back in Street I wold just get another SuperDuke but I feel as i I have already done that and want something new

I need to research it more and am looking to see who makes an after market exhaust

I'd rather have a 10 speed with a flat tire then your HD.

Here is write up in Cycle News about it. http://cyclenews.coverleaf.com/cyclenews/20111108#pg27

There was a comment in Cycle News from a reader saying it wasn't coming to the US. I have no idea if that is true.

Take care and ride safe,

I just got off the phone with my boy who took care of me back in the old Corse days and he is now over at a BMW dealership - He has heard nothing of them coming to the states but is getting calls from plenty of guys about them - I don't think Huskie is bringing any SM based bikes back over until 2013 so this may be included in that "splurg"

Whole diff seating position Bro - Basically the same as my current SM and the old SD - The HD puts all my weight on my lower back and with the FWD Controls, it does so even more - I can ride the SM all day as I am up right - The HD is not the same seating

Should not be that hard to comprehend man

Here, what pic of the below riding positions would put more strain on the lowest disc(s) in your back? - KTM or HD w/Fwd Controls?

The belt I wear is like what you use if you are doing heavy lifting. It velcros around your waste and supports the lower back. Keep the Harley, get a belt and get a hooligan bike. 2 bikes are better than one. Actually 5 is better than one but they all become like a mistress in their own way. They all need something all of the time.
