A New Bike… A New Victory…

So, I have been daydreaming a little about a new bike… not for me, but for my lovely wife.  The Ol’ Lady has a Nightster that just kicks ass, but she has suddenly discovered the Blackline.  I must admit the Blackline is a beauty pets 2 for free!

I love riding the Nightster (with her permission, of course).  It feels a lot like my 49 Pan, but the apes are smaller and it consistently starts and goes… that second one is a very nice quality in a bike.  However, we do like to travel across country and that measly 95-mile gas tank is a bit on the restrictive side all resources.

So, I posted a photo comparing a bunch of Harley’s to see which one she liked best (just going on looks.  You know, gut reaction).



She chose the Blackline and the Fatboy Lo (both of which I would have chosen myself).  We would have chosen the 48, but again, the petrol capacity issue download minecraft for free.

 

Then I figured we would open it up a bit… check the Harleys out against the Victory.  The Victory has a bigger engine and seems to give you a little more bang for your buck download word for free in full.


She has not selected from the above list of the Hammer 8-ball, the Vegas High Ball, the Vegas 8-ball, and the aforementioned Harleys ticket.

But that is OK because Victory is introducing a new model in one short week.  December 9th will be the debut of a new model.  Below is a teaser that tells you almost nothing except there are red pinstripes on the rims, the paint is probably flat black, and there will most likely be some more pinstripe work on the tins.  You can also guess that there are ape hangers on the bike by the level in which the rider’s throttle hand sits in one particularly short shot.  The keen eye will observe my good friend Frank’s (Nino925) rings on that throttle hand… Yup, best out there, visit his site here whatsapp downloaden op apple ipad.  And do a search in the search bar in the upper right corner of the blog… I have a lot of info on Nino!

Anyway, the video is almost not even a teaser, but it will do to keep the juices flowing, keep the dreamers dreaming, and keep me posting bike pics form my better half to drool over while I fantasize about being able to put one under her X-Mas Tree herunterladen.

 

L&R,

New Dark Custom From Harley-Davidson

So, I think I have just seen my Ol’ Ladies newest bike… followers of the blog will know that I finally pulled the trigger and bought her a slightly used Nightster with mini apes, custom pipes, and a screamin’ eagle breather.  And boy is that bike FUN!  I mean, I bought it for her, but she has let me take it for a spin a couple times and I must admit that it could very well be the most fun bike I have ever ridden europees schadeformulier download unive.

But, there is a part of her that still longs for a big twin.  And I can’t blame her.  I mean, that sporty will blow the socks off my Deuce any day of the week, but there is something about a slightly larger, more substantial piece of iron between your legs windows 10 can be downloaded for free.

Enter the new Dark Custom from the Motor Company.  The Blackline was introduced today and is geared towards the younger rider (i.e.- more hip, now, and in your face than all you old geezers out there – myself included).  The FXS takes on a bobber-esque look with its minimal appearance and blacked out parts.  It has a tough, rat-rod, rockabilly appeal of timeless style, but it also has some pretty impressive options.  The new ones are listed below, but I think the fact that ALL Softails are now available with anti-lock brakes is the biggest draw.  I am a fan of The Factory’s version of ABS because they are NOT integrated… delphi diagnose software downloaden. I like being able to use my front and rear brakes independently of one another… but I digress.

Key NEW features of the 2011 Blackline include:

* NEW Powertrain styling

Anyway, enjoy it.  I am thinking I need to keep this bike secret from Mamma long enough to pay off the Sporty.

Love, Respect, and Dark Customs,
