At last - liquid cooled

Owned HD's from 60's thru 80' - early sports, xr1000, fxrt's, wglide - swore 'em off. Been watching the [change] and thought I would try again. Really pleased with the XG750. I think someone on State St. woke up.

While many disparage the AMF years it was AMF that initiated the "Evolution" and "Revolution" engine development programs and that ultimately lead to Harley-Davidson producing far superior motorcycles in the 21st Century. The new "Revolution X" engine used on the Street 500/750 is just the latests in those developments that AMF initiated.

Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

Can't believe I didn't know that, thanks for sharing. It sure does help to have some seriously knowledgeable members on board!

Whattaya mean "at last- liquid cooled"? HD has had liquid cooled bikes on the street since the 2002 VRod was introduced. I agree with you though, the XG is a nice bike. Maybe next spring I will test ride one, and park it in the garage next to my HD Street Rod.

What? You have room in your garage? You obviously need another Harley. LOL

Well.... I will have room if I sell the Sportster. It has been growing roots into garage floor since I got my VRSCR in May. After riding the R, I found it hard to go back to the Sporty. I like the R's engine, brakes, suspension, and handling so much better. I suspect I would like the XG750 as well. I finally got to see one in person and sit on it, but no test ride. Riding season is coming to close here soon, so hopefully next spring....
