I see more and more small displacement bikes all the time,
I see BMW and a few others developing very nice sub 800cc bikes and scooters,
I see scooters that are very capable of super slab use,
I so often hear of those that rode the sportster and found it too heavy,
I also believe that a motorcycle company MUST develope and produce capable
bikes that weigh less than 500Lbs and cost LESS than $8,000 and,,,,,,
DONT NEED $500 worth of rocker box work to stop seal leaks at 7,500 miles,
and DONT NEED $1,000 worth of suspension mods to handle like a modern motorcycle should !
I have to manualy adjust my clutch,,easy for me but come on Harley,,W.T.F.
I really like my Sportster, Its the perfect bike for me, AFTER I did all these mods....
New riders, 16-35 for the most part are not going to go this far,
and many like me do not want or need a touring bike,,at 900Lbs...
Ok I'm done,,,
Harley,,you listening ?
