Good one. I'm gonna try to remember that. Try being the operative word there.I also do not like paying a Hundred dollars, which is where HD comes from by the way,
I admit that it was HD that tempted me to get back on a bike after 40 years. Didn't take much shopping to turn my head, though.
1. weight. I ain't no spring chicken. I wanted to start with something lighter than anything HD builds.
2. price. Basically same thing. Something much lighter than HD which is way overpriced, IMHO.
3. dependability. As someone on this thread has already said, I wanted to ride, not wrench -- or sit on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck.
