WTF?!?The upkeep?You mean changing oil, filters, and tires?Cause that's all most of my Harleys have ever needed.Most of my Guzzis have been MUCH NEEDIER!
I've watched riders of large dual sport bikes stand up while riding one of the paved roads in the park where we have the Wild Guzzi rally . No , not a Guzzi rider Dusty
Being able to comfortably stand on the pegs is just as important as a comfortable seat to me on my touring rigs. When I'm putting in big miles/long hours another position to change up to for a few miles is very welcome.
Fellas , it was meant as humor , remember humor . That said , if you stand up on your motorbike as soon as you let out the clutch in a city park , on smooth pavement , then I find it amusing . Kinda like the guys who ride around at 5 MPH with their legs dangling over forward mounted footpegs located so far forward their legs are straight out at a weird angle.
Behind many jokes is an amount of truth. Besides, itís the internet; everything gets (sometimes unnecessarily) dissected. Like this:Standing up at super slow speed is actually a very good exercise in balance. I recommend everyone start out like that Remember these machines serve as both tool and toy. Depending on the rider, the emphasis lies toward one end or the other.
It's all of the doo rags and T shirts Dusty
KevM what I meant was, accessories, parts, labor if you donít do your own, insurance costs...etc.No need to get mad.inditx
Perhaps so. I see Harley Riders about 5 to 1 over the rest of us. I always hear stories about big buck fixes, primaries, clutches, even tune-ups (which I don't understand given hydraulic lifters) but it's always something.
2. The biggest problem with any Harley is its owner. I'm SURE there are huge bills to fix shit that people brake because they hop-up the damn things, sometimes within an inch of their lives, and then do stupid things with them from smokey burnouts to warming them up for 15 minutes. Like I said the biggest problem is the owner.
Canít disagree with most of what youíve said but more of my buddies ride Harleys and so Iím watching them shell out more than I would but Iím kinda tight anyway, GC.p.s. My buddies donít abuse their bikes and they are all garage queens. inditx
I hope HD does some sales training so their sales guys don't treat this bike the same as they did the V Rod and the Buells. Or not! At my age, I certainly have no interest in hearing either a good or bad sales pitch for HD's ADV effort. I think BMW has had a lock on this segment since 1981, and will continue to do so. 2021 is the 40th anniversary of the GS series.Bob
I have never been ignored at a dealership, unless I want to be. I come in ready to talk about bikes. I come in with a smile on my face and a hello for anyone not stuck on a phone or helping a customer.I tell them if I am ready to buy, or if I am just there to see what's new.I get more positive responses when I post photos of my Moto Guzzi on the Road Glide forum than when I post the same photos on this forum.So, to the naysayers about how they are treated in dealerships, maybe it is you.
well, when the Buell Rotax bikes were being released, I went to the local Harley store. I walked in and looked around and asked the sales lady when they might have the new bikes delivered. She replied that "Buells are for people that like to ride 100 mph and have their ass in air." I said "yeah."Now, they did have some warranty work on those pipe frame Buells that they couldn't fix. But they still had a Buell sign in front.
Hater will be hater....to the OP , Thank you for the review , i am going to test ride one myself soon...not that i am going to buy it ( i am a COB ) LOL
