And congrats on being a Typical HD Cog and choosing 1 of the few people here to say they Would (and was actually Moments away from) buying another bike from Harley Davidson (Despite the dipshites who worships them and work in their dealerships). Now I must face my Bigest decision of the day, Which bike to take out .
Big decision? On road or off road? Seems easy to me.
I'm glad you bought a Triumph. It fits perfectly with the gay porn industry that you work in. Now you can spend your life (40,000 posts = 14/day since 2005) on the Scrambler forum bashing Triumph riders and bikes like you did with H-D. We'll miss you; not.
^ The 48 looks cool but that's where it stops for me. It's uncomfortable unless you're little, average brakes, does the Harley Shake at idle, 5 speed tranny, 2.1 gal. tank (HUH!) - well that's enough said. Just nothin there but looks - except nostalgia, gotta pay a price for that - I guess??
The shame about bikes like the 48, Nightster, etc, is that a Sportster can be a really fun bike, but HD takes all the riding fun out of their bikes to get a certain look. Something like a Sportster Super Low with the same style of wheels but the front adapted for dual front discs, and a taller suspension would be a nice all around bike. Oh yeah, don't be afraid to put a decent seat on the thing. More padding allows more saddle time and doesn't cramp the knees so much.
The pilot is always the first person at the scene of the crash.
