Yup, the Street Rod is a hoot!

Hi all. Picked up a left over '17 SR this past Friday. I think I dig it more than the XR1200 it shares room with in the garage. My '06 VRSCR Street Rod isn't quite as flickable but the motors sound similar.



The new SR......



The '06 VRSCR Street Rod......



The '10 XR1200......



The lone Big Twin '14 FXDL......

10-64 and wke002 like this.

Looks like a nice stable you have there, Scooter!

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

Isn't the XG750R a race bike that has provisions for a license plate?

I heard that it is even more powerful than some Japanese crotch rockets.

Yes, I have the regular 750 Street and I find it to be far more powerful than any motorcycle truely needs to be.
And having an extra 10% more power would make a dangerous weapon in the hands of all but expert racers.

I think you are being a tad bit dramatic. compared to some metric bikes out there its not all that fast.

You said VRSCR Street Rod.. did you mean Vrod? I almost traded my Cadillac CTS for a 2012 but the other half of my budget wasn't onboard.

Those bikes make me think of Earl Campbell. A big fullback that'll cross the field just to run you over on his way to the end zone.
