Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

The silver lowers make it look like a BMW. Rear view looks quite Victoryish.

I'm still out on the rear bag design. Starting to look to Victory to me. But I don't care for that look.
Someone else said they are looking for a bigger engine......Why.
This beast is pushing just minus 1000lbs. I guess if they go over 1/2 a ton they will need a 2000cc.
Think I'll just look for a nice used 1500 or 1800 in a year or two.....
I can rememberwhen a 750 was big......But I'm getting older I guess.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

Yes, I was thinking it looked like a BMW and a Victory combined to give it that futuristic look, My 81's paid for and looks more like what I like...I can not afford such a ride.. :( I'm so totally happy with my old school touring machine that ..I could dance. :D .Can someone loan me 24 grand.. :shock: so I too can have this pretty machine..Thanks for posting it Mooseman...

Now we have two threads talking about the 2012.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

Yeh, but that's cool, I for one never go to the 1800's because I do not own one and hardly ever visit the 1500's either, it's great you posted it in the chat because everyone will see it there, thanks again... :D Hey, we like to dream about having one too... :lol:

A fellow winger from San Diego sent me that link for the 2012: I agree about it looking way too much like the Victory(a look I personally don't care for and talked my buddy into the wing instead of the Victory). Maybe the 2013 will come back around.

I'll stick with my 96 Aspencade.....The styling and handling are unmatched and it only cost me 7G's 8 years ago.
I agree on the Victory look with the pointy tail...quite obnoxious if ya ask me. I love my 96 cause it looks like it's
flyin' down the road when it's standing still.
