Out with the Old me and in with the new US

When I first came to the forum, I did not have my bike yet and I had no idea what I was doing, so when it ask me to select a user name, I just put my names together, but as I got busy on the forum, that just didnt fit with who I am and my bike, so I requested to change my name and although they said they normal does not allow this, they made an exception for me.

So please say goodbye to LaVerneKey and hello to

Beauty and the Beast (name of my bike is the Beast)

Are you sure you don't have that backwards and the name of your bike is the Beauty?

Ha Ha HA, dont let your lying eyes deceive you..I am the Beauty and my bike is the Beast, lol

When I was trying to come up with a name, I said my Black Beast, my son who have a much larger bike said "mom it is black but a beaast it not".

So I dropped the black and kept the Beast just because it is a little bike that will do beastly things as soon as I learn how to make it do just that.

The Street 500 and Street 750 are not "little" bikes and, in fact, when I grew up in the 1960's a 750 was considered to be a very large motorcycle. It's only been because of "displacement inflation" over the years that somehow they were classified as smaller when compared to the "RV" motorcycles. By analogy a 1970 Dodge Challenger is a small car when compared to a Winnibago motorhome. LOL

In comparison to my son's bike and we were not talking engine size but the bike itself, my beast is little which is one of the main reason I was so drawn to it, it is a little Harley.

Harley packed a lot of motorcycle into a small package with the Street.


BTW were you the member that wanted a lower seat height? My partner and I are checking out a solution to that problem for the stock Street Harley's for some that are still on tip-toes due to the seat height from the ground. We've got an idea that might work (i.e. it works in theory LOL) but we need to actually see if it does.

Haha I know what you mean, making it become a reality from theory can become a PITA, hopefully all goes well throughout the process of you guys creating the seat.
