Re: Looking Hard
Been out of the net for a while fellas, went home (to Iowa), to pick up my KLX. It was a great drive, never been on I 90 before, a bit chilly this time of year, but the mountains were beautiful, covered with snow in places. South Dakota was neat, lots of scenic stuff to see if I had the time, which I didn't, but it's getting added to my list of stuff to do, somewhere near the top since it will be by motorcycle. Sturgis, Billings, Montana where I think the annual killer hill climb is, Devils Tower, Yellowstone Park, the Bad Lands, and probably a few other things I either missed or forgot.
Chubby, reference the V Rod, I guess it's one of those things you either like or don't like, I think it's kind of ugly myself. I saw a special on the design and production of it, my bud recorded it from somewhere. It discussed among other things, either Porshe or some other European automobile maker helped design it. I think if they had just put a standard radiator on it, I'd like it. I still think that Dyna Super Glide Sport with pearl white paint and spoked wheels is the bike. Just before I left here to drive to IA, I saw a Boss Hoss parked in some guys leather shop here in Tacoma, nice bike, huge tank. Fella said 9 gallons of gas. The entire bike was just huge, chevy 350 small block in it. I think that pretty much sums up the power issue.
