It's nice to see a fellow R.A.T

I think it is an improvement over the absolutely obnoxious rumble of a typical Harley. I can not stand being in the presence of a biker rally. I would rather smash my head with a hammer than listen to that racket and breathe that exhaust. I am generally a pretty tolerant person, but I can state, with no hesitation..."Harley Davidson engines can go to Hell!" I have a neighbor that rides one and pulls up at 2 or 3 a.m. every morning. This sets my dog off barking and ruins my sleep. The dog hates those noisy piles of crap, too. I hate them with a passion.

A pleasure to meet you thesaneone

I ONCE allowed Mrs C to rev up the beast just so I could stand behind and hear it for myself !!! (I know a foolish thing)

I swear it's the second best sound invented by mankind.

Wow !!! , that is absolutely stunning I doff my hat to you sir , only in my dreams or at a bike show have I seen a beast like that , the guy sat atop looks like a bloke I could have a beer with.

I thought this thread was about electric motorcycles?

I've ridden CBXs and Scott Flying Squirrels, Kawasaki 2 stroke 750 triples and a 1903 Kerry. Harley used to give me a new model every year to use in a TV series. Triumph gave me a pair of Bonnies for the last Evel Knevil movie. My folks owned a multibrand motorcycle dealership for years.

I'm done with all of 'em.

Once you've experienced the flying carpet magic of an EBike you'll never desire a fossil fuel dinosaur again.

I wish someday I can get the courage and look at my pics of my bike before a drunk took both of us out.

The KH 750 ? ... and you're still alive , wow ... I remember the tales told about them , I had the KH 400 but it lived in a box in bits until I sold it.

A motorcycle without a real petrol engine just isn't the real deal to my mind , I like the sound and the sensation a real engine.

Yeah, zackly like this one.
www.bits4motorbikes.co.uk...

It was a death trap, but it was the CBX that came closest.

p1.bikepics.com...

Cody on his Triumph reminded me of it.

Too top heavy to turn and impossible to stop. I still remember how it felt to fly like Superman after broadsiding a Renault 16.

Now I own a couple of EBicycles. One for on road and one for off, and I love em.

I also have a lithium battery powered electric boat

Nope.. no laughing here .. beautiful bike you got there cody

Seeing your bike there almost got me tempted to get a bike again and keep it at one of my sons houses for when make my trips downriver ( no roads out here to ride on in the boonies ) ..

Your a lucky man ..

I would presume your talking about the new rockets as I owned one of the earlier rocket threes. I can tell you now I spent an awful lot of money keeping it on the road, broke down on a regular basis. The old Triumph and BSA factories were in Birmingham, about 15 miles from where I live. The new Triumph factory is 5 miles down the road from me. Now let me upset all the motorcyclists on here. Triumph, A British marque built in Britain, is virtually built with Japanese and Chinese components. Just built in Britain. Have a laugh at that one Yanks. Now go and look where all your beloved Harley Davidsons components come from. Just to give you a clue. It ain't USA.

Completely sterile and characterless ! Can't beat the sound of the petrol V - Twin, with loud pipes!

I live in the U.K, and a Harley passing by always makes me look...lovely !

I think the vmax in all black is one of the meanest looking bikes out there.

Awesome.

Mine was a dark purple pearl .I am not sure if the new ones handle better but the breaks are a big improvement from what I have seen. I was going to put velcrow on my ass and seat at one time .It would pop me off the seat and one time pulled the handle bars right out of my hands .It scared me many times .Kind of glad I didn't keep it as I think a accident was in the cards .Loved the power though . a reply to: thesaneone
