    Point being, timebomb, there's a time and place for everything. Time and place for Nos is college parties.
    Yeah shaftdrive and it had highway bars, also I guess it's considered a king and queen seat is what it had.

    Apparently the L was for Low slider, or something close to that.


    Atleast the maintenance is low!

    Yeah, though it holds no appeal to me.

    Same, though very cool and fast, the power cant even be used on a normal road without a police chase being formed. I definitely can admire the craftsmanship.

    More fun to go fast on a slow bike than go slow on a fast one!

    I've had my days with insane bikes (by far the most insane of which was a fully built GPz 750 Turbo with over 200 hp at the rear wheel; that thing scared me more times than I like to count). Nowadays, I am having a blast slowly and steadily tweaking this Sportster. Just got a set of cams for it, so a little more fun is in store-but nothing remotely crazy.

    The best thing about harleys is howmuch you can modify them, and how readily available those parts are, you can probably literally build a whole complete engine out of aftermarket parts. Evo is a great engine, now if they can do something like buell again... a twin is a great engine for curvy roads, the powers always there.
