Let me put it this way, they are pretty cute buildings from the outside, compared to most places around here

And that picture wasn't the prettiest side so I guess I see your point. Although I need more alcohol is it 430 yet
haha.

the 3.0t in the Lincoln mkz is pretty peppy. I was blowing the tires off everywhere

I like the regular diavel but it's almost a standard, the xdiavel is more of a cruiser than the regular, but it still retains the lean angles etc

What models did you ride? There are some that handle very well, and some that are far from it. Some vibrate more than others, mine doesn't bother me. It is a long shot from a stock motor-Not too crazy, but not stock for sure. I'm not sure about the lifestyle thing. Rider makes the bike, bike doesn't make the rider. I've always heard about it, never have figured out what it is.

In a couple years we're probably going to get a slightly used or new cliTaurus, half of me says sho, other half says be a tightass. Any lincoln would be nice, but too nice for my kids.

That thing is crazy, I've never heard of a Ducati cruiser until now. Around here it's pretty much "normal" cruisers, jap rockets, not much of the higher end stuff. Not even many v-rods (good thing). My retired neighbor has 3 bmw airheads and a newer moto guzzi, that's as out of the ordinary I've seen lately. He loves his guzzi. I've been wanting a motard for some reason.

I see the vrod street rod as the best bike they have made.

Different strokes I suppose. It is the best performer, for sure. I just can't get past the radiator.

It handled well, out accelerated anything else Harley made. They were good bikes. But I haven't been a fan since they shuttered Buell and then built mv Agusta a new factory and sold them back to their previous owner for a dollar. Idiots run harley

The corporation has always been fucked (as long as I can remember), and I'll likely never buy a new one again because of it. A bunch of bullshit marketing, outsourcing, not honoring warranties etc.

Morning! I hit 199lbs this morning! Down 7 lbs in less than a month! I'm feeling good about going into the next phase of dieting discipline next month
