    All the big adventure bikes weigh as much or more. Hell, the new Ducati Multistrada with bags weighs very close to 600lbs. Harley took direct aim at a large and growing market segment and built a...

    Pretty much. Might not be 50amp at a single outlet, but it will be enough to run both an electric dryer and and electric range at the same time.

    Not in most cases. If I had an electric car (and assuming I was back in the office instead of telecommuting) my normal daily round-trip commute would be 25 miles. Throw in some errand-running and...

    Rob, nothing against you or the bikes you like, but catering to that mindset is what has almost destroyed Harley.

    This may well be the bike that saves Harley. Modern, well-designed and aimed at a growing (as opposed to shinking/dying) market segment.

    Assuming the claims hold up, they've hit the range and speed needed for it to be useful, for me at least. I don't understand though why they didn't integrate some storage. Practical urban run-abouts...

    LOL, I'll have to remember that line, there's a few bands it would apply to. :)

    Agree on Rush though, Geddy Lee has the most stridently annoying voice in the history of recorded music.

    If you rely on TV for your news, well, anything I have to say on that would be highly insulting so I'll leave that be.

    That's a very important point. Extra fine steel wool with a bit of fork oil on the tubes is my preferred method, but others work well also. Just be very careful not to go through the chrome. You...

    ?? A good aftermarket exhaust will usually flow a bit more more air than the stock exhaust. Not a big difference typically, but often enough to require a small jetting change.

    IME, most Japanese bikes of that era were jetted on the lean side, particularly in the low speed circuits, for emissions reasons. One step up on the pilot jets was the standard fix.

    Yep. You used to be able to get a Tacoma with a 7' bed. That would be useful.

    For me, 6' beds are kind of the anti-Goldilocks size. Not enough bigger than a 5' to really matter for what I need. So...
