Motorcycle guys

Alright all you cruiser guys,,,

I sold the mustang and am waiing for the guy to come pick it up. Decided I am going to get a bike, its been over 10 years since I've riden.

Of course I will eb taking a riding course again to get my license however I have questions about bikes. I am looking at used as new ones are retardedly priced.

Looking at BMC's, Ironhorse, Titans and Big Dogs. anyone have opinions one way or the other other than looks?

Thanks,
Paul

I'll sell you a very nice 2003 100 year anniversary Dyna Wide Glide. 3300 miles on it. All black with Anniversary stripes and badges. Have everything to make stock again. It has low profile seat, drag bars, drag pipes, lots of chrome. I'm tired of walking past it in the garage. I dont get many chances to ride anymore. I bought the bike new in march of 03.

$13,500 is a steal.

This is what it looked like new (without gay windshield)



Now it looks like this, but with a low profile seat that goes back the fender.



it still has the factory spoke too.

Gonna get myself in trouble now...

From my experience I know of two people who have had bad experiences with Iron Horses. As far as the rest go, -BMC's, Ironhorse, Titans and Big Dogs- I believe they are hard tails, and not a good long distance cruiser, just something for getting around town.

I'm a HUGE - not a fat joke - fan of Victory Motorcycles. They're badass and American made. They look great and have a modern motor. My roommate has an 06 8-ball and I'm looking to get a kingpin - gotta have my cruiser.

Currently I have a 99 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 classic. Its a Harley Clone, and it leaks like one too I've got Vance and Hines Pipes, a mustang seat, and a K&N Filter to round it out. I've ridden for a year now got my license and it's a blast. The torque on these cruisers is great, and they are a lot of fun.

I thought it was a monster till I hopped on my buddies 8-ball and thought I was going to snap my neck off when I pulled the throttle back.

Regardless, with the bike market the way it is, it's hard to go wrong. Foreign bikes are cheap and reliable. Victory are dependeable, more powerful, and better looking, but if you go Harley, well itsa Harley.

Hope this helps

Maybe I should ride my Harley more so I too can have this "Harley leak" all the import riders talk about. lol

Your right the Victory bikes would be my second choice for a bike, and Ronin (member of this site) has a company that makes billit accessories for them. Very nice too.
