    No fight Matt :lol:

    I was just responding to your post.

    As for the Victory, those pseudospaceage looks mixed with American retro are just not my style.

    As for Harleys, I only like a couple. It was hard to come on and say I would actually buy this one.

    No, but S&S makes a 106 cu. in. kit to bore out the older 92cu and 100cu. The only other part I know that they have off the top of my head is an intake which really helps out on low-end torque.

    We use to have a '05 Victory Kingpin 92cu in. I loved that bike. It's the reason I got my Class M license. My mom sold it since I was the only one able to actually drive it. Her and her-at-the-time boyfriend bought it together. After they broke up, she kept it since she had the most money into it and paid him off for what little he had paid. Let me find some pics.

    The Dyna chassis is what got me to even look at a Harley.

    I rode a CVO Dyna 110 when the 6 speed came out.

    It was very comfy, and actually took twisties at a good clip.

    Now, the Softail is just not my bag. My buddy has has a Heritage with the 88, and we switched bikes last summer for about 50 miles. I wanted my Triumph back quick!

    Matt, that Hamer is pretty cool.

    The other thing here is, I am looking to go distance, 2 up. It is a major factor in the decision on the next bike.

    I hear ya. I'm young and can ride my Nighthawk S for 1 to 1 1/2 hours at a time before a break. The Victory Kingpin we had was so comfortable. Someday I'll have my own.....and maybe that Harley :naughty:

    And then I come across a clean ZRX1100 for $2500 that a guy has to sell. I have wanted one of these since they came out.

    I wouldn't give the guy a dime. That is just a drawing of a ZRX1100
