I'm looking at the red one first (he called me back sooner), and if it's good I'm putting some money down!

I'd really like to see this bike photoshopped white, I think white/gold would be bad @ss

Those are sweet. But I'd kill myself trying to shift gears by hand.

I voted for red, since the black one has yellow windscreen and yellow wheels. Make the screen clear or smoke and the wheels black too, and Black wins!

I like the black one best.

MMMM_ERT, I really like the Crossbones as well - love the 50's old school look.



Here's my new toy ('09 Nightster) after first service and stage 1 (suck iPhone pic)
1150 miles in three weeks which isn't too bad.
Already ridden to the NC mountains (Blue Ridge Parkway) 2x - the parkway is about 90 miles from my driveway.

Pfftt.
1150 miles in three weeks, hasn't been 'washed' yet except when I rode in the rain.
This is a a keeper and I am going to run the miles up...

I have some family events tomorrow afternoon, but meeting a friend for breakfast and ride to the big Indian dealer near the factory (Kings Mt, NC).

That's what I'm saying. Doesn't show all the mess like a chromed out one would. Lot less trouble.

I just put a down payment on the red bike. After seeing it in person I couldn't leave it! The guy has every record since he bought it new from the dealer. Almost looked like was going to cry as I handed him the down payment! I'll be sure to post pics/vids when I get it home early next week!

That is VERY cool...but limited to 150 build? It might as well be made of "unobtanium".

But come on...give Honda some props on the Fury. I can't believe they would build such a thing..

'Grats Ryan. She's a bute!

Not sure about the new ones, but I can tell you my "old bike" is a solid reliable performer and I never hesitate to take it far, far from home. One major bonus of riding something popular, there's always someone somewhere who has a part or knows someone who does. I can't say the same for my buddy's Honda.

One time I was with friends in Arizona, outside of Kingman. My buddy's air cleaner blows right off the side of his 1984 Superglide and into the dirt on the side of the road. We looked for it for an hour, never found it. We roll into Kingman, gas stop, and would you believe a guy that was there had the exact air cleaner he needed? It wasn't stock either. Unf'nbelievable!

I put 500 on this weekend. It's hard to turn back towards home when the ribbon of asphalt keeps winding you thru beautiful country.

Ride safe!
