I know you're not talking to me.
My retirement will (unfortunately) come when my last breath leaves my lungs.
Until then, I work every day to support my increasingly needy crackhead uncle...Sam.

if only they would have used that bodywork on the 1125 it would have flown out of the dealerships! Loved that bike but the body was head scratching at best

You mean the Barracuda? Oh yeah, damn nice looking bike.
I would have loved to own that bike.
Read the Cycle World road test of it just before it was destroyed, along with remaining pre-production units.
They said it was a joy to ride.
The 1190RS is "son of Barracuda".



H-D is one of the stupidest companies on the planet.
In my opinion, they've lost touch with reality.
Even BMW "gets it" these days with the S1000RR.

HD sells potato bikes and that is it....HD pulled a Wal Mart, started out most all parts were US made then got wise to add cheap China fenders, components. US made my a$$. That Buell is a beauty in yellow trim!

Hard to see how this could compete with the KTM RC8 R. for 1/2 of the price.
