As you should, trading up from a Sportster. Your hp has doubled and your vibration level is cut in less than half. Now you`ll get to enjoy true motorcycling.....

welcome aboard, brother!

That's funny right there!

And it's very fitting, slowjoe and it's a red hawk.

That reminds me a say someone told me long time ago as followed:
"If a Harley don't leak oil, that means it's got no oil!!!"
Oh, should I remind you guy's? Harley riders don't like to hear this!

Aloha and Welcome! Nice looking ride you got there. I think you will enjoy the change.
And its a V-Twin also. Nothing like a V-twin to rock your soul. Though, I do enjoy my V-4 at times, Not as radical, but a V. You also lucked out on the fastest color.
Enjoy!!!

The guy i raced a Duc for in the 60's, Bill Black, sold BSA, Norton, BMW, and Ducatis used to tell us when we queried him about oil spots, "Show me a motorcycle that doesn't leak oil and i'll show you a motorcycle with no oil in it".

So, not specific to Hog but included all the pre-jap bikes.

no. just a little humor.....although, if you're already slow joe, it could have a cumulative effect which may be enough to adversely affect performance.

The red paint is significantly denser due to it's italian lineage, at least that's my excuse, and therefore negatively impacts acceleration; this is esp true when there is a meatball on the seat.

It some humor and a little jealousy mixed in....lol
In typical Honda fashion, the first year of production made the most HP and they were all red.

That is why I made the "have to carry the extra 5hp" comment....lol
Though the '99s were also close and they had the yellow ones then but who wants a pee colored bike....
