I guess. I don't mind low powered bikes though. It's a nice change of pace to go slow. I had a blast when I had that bonneville for a month this summer.

I'd have to spend at least a day on it to form a real impression. But my initial impression was just like "okay, whats the big deal".

I don't mind slow bikes either, but I'd rather just go with a GS500 or hell even my 1984 GS450. The dry weight is ~550lbs. vs 384lbs

i feel like harley owners talk other people into buying them so they don't feel as dumb for buying one. eventually one owner will admit the bike is **** and the entire company will crumble.

Figured I should post here as I'm getting back into paintball and I'm on the Nation a lot now.

This is my bike, it was a 1983 Virago, now it's a little customized. The engine's off a later model virago with a different starting system as the stock one was horribly designed.

The exhaust took the longest to make, by far. Lots of welds under the wrap, as well as all the stainless pieces that make up the cage.

That looks pretty sick, the only part that confuses me is why the seat bends up like that
otherwise it looks GREAT
