Wish the writers had a little better handle on motorbikes. How can they not understand a daily commuter bike?

Please don't think your right to be what you want, trumps, in anyway, my right to believe that makes you seriously strange.

It really irks me that most of the reviews weather Indian or North American always need to make a detraction that the Street is NOT your typical Harley. I don't care if they point it out but the vocabulary they use paints a subtly negative picture.

But note for Harley-Davidson loyalist, the new and smooth fuel-injected Revolution X engine lacks the typical rumbling character of a H-D air-cooled V-twin.

It also (happily for most, we hope) lacks a clunky transmission. The smooth-shifting six speed arrives with a great ratio for both highway speeds and canyon blasts. We never missed a shift, and finding neutral was never an issue.
Lacks? How does anything LACK a clunky gearbox, you mean the Street has an IMPROVED gearbox...

I agree sometimes it appears that what is known as "Harley Culture" exists more in the minds of cycle rag writers than with Cycle riders themselves.

Its new, its modern, it's a Harley so how can we write this in a negative.....???
