I like bikes from nearly every brand, have owned honda, yamaha, and harley, have seriously considered triumph, ducati, Indian, and moto guzzi. For years when I look at Suzuki cruisers I always think, man they are chunky, clunky, ill proportioned ugly bikes (1 exception, mid 80's 700 intruder). That's what I think when I see a v rod as well. I don't think I am alone. I think they could have blackened out the engine, reshape it some, and put it in a touring bike and a new light, compact chassis build to turn and it would have been a much more successful venture. I hope HD rises to the challenge, though I'll be keeping my 16 Roadster I think for quite sometime, perhaps with a high compression 1275 in its future.

Looked at the Cycle World Flattrack ftr750 propaganda video.
Did not buy a new Roadster @ $8500 because it was not good enough, but close, almost tempting.
The ftr1200 has my attention.
Sure hope Harley does not snooze.
