The ALL NEW H-D "Double V Twin" Sport Tourer and Streetfighter
So of course now this conversation goes right back to the H-D loop. Here in Motus you've got an exclusive, excellent sport touring machine - very fast, smooth, good looking. OK, yea - so guys say stuff like " well my Honda / Suzuki / Kawasaki / Yamaha - GT ST 1100 1300 Whatever bike does most of what the Motus does and has traction control, anti-skid brakes, plug in shaver receptacle and bigger couch seat for the Mrs., bla bla bla. It's like the new KIA car is a almost like the BMW - well yea, but it's still a South Korean KIA. H-D has always sold less bike for more money - the made in the U.S.A. myth, the heritage of their name and saying " Hey I'm riding a HARLEY ! " brings in customers and justifies the sales price. With a Motus Streetfighter bike on cue for 2019 here is H-D's chance to skip their way to the front of the M/C pack - buy Motus for less than the development costs, install traction control and anti-skid, put their name on it and slide them into their dealer network, rear couch seat optional. Yea, yea, I know - they tried that with Buell - but it's was a different animal, hard to compete, slim market share and the same could be said for the Motus. BUT - this is the real deal, a true world class U.S. made engine and bike, and it's already developed and proven. Plus H-D needs a new "double V twin" (V4) top end engine and a Streetfighter. Just saying - why look a gift horse in the mouth ? :blahblah:
If H-D had its act together they would have already done what those Motus boys did - they could have followed literally in their footsteps to design that engine with the "Double V Twin" thought pattern. Also have all the old school dealers sold to younger folks yet so H-D can move on without old the school baggage of " I don't like V Rods, Modern engines or Change " mentality ? They should like and welcome ANYTHING that helps them out with future sales -so here's a gift horse looking them in the mouth, U.S. based and probably for sale soon. I hope all the old school guys go out for a three Martini lunch and the forward vision new school thinking folks buy Motus before they get back !
Just got done reading an article from a writer who picked up a Motus and then road-tripped from AL to WA. I never really knew much about them other than that they existed (and that if I got another bike, my wife would kill me)-- but it sure sounds like they were one heck of a fun ride!
So many of you will have been looking at bike pics and their riders for much longer than me.
What is the one picture stored on your hard disc that is the coolest, baddest, either the motorcycle or the person on it? Both would be perfect

OK, since it's my thread I'll start first.
I am in a family business that wholesales rugs and carpets to retailers. We have been around for 25 years. I have been here the last 15 out of college. I am the 'technology guru' (I am sure some of you guys could run rings around me) responsible for...
Hello all, Hope every one is getting plenty riding during this pandemic!
I'm looking for some one to pick up and exhaust and ship it for me from Pennsylvania to New Zealand? Dont mind shouting some beer! Only reason I ask as I'm just weary of the chap selling it ( new account ). Cheers in advance
