    I'm still skeptical of a water cooled HD engine. If it does happen, I suppose I will ride a water cooled Harley. I doubt I will buy a Honda because my Harley has a radiator.

    Looks to me like your feet will get a little hot with the radiator in the lowers like that. I understand the design is to hide the radiators but I'd have to ride that first to believe my feet and legs would not fry!

    GOOD investigation on your part, Thanks

    I like the idea of NOT changing the Sound or the Shape of the engine.. It still looked like a harley.

    IF so, This might work for the younger generation and a few Of Us Old Die-Hards..

    Agree with you Bubbie, kind of like when the EVO made its debut, many old timers would not embrace it:s

    You got that right Jack, the first one I saw had the silver barrels and looked like a Virago. I didnt want anything to do with it. But learned later that it was a really good engine.

    Looks nice, just goes to show what I've always seen and that's Harley has the best styling over the metrics. When the metrics design a clone to catch the sales, they don't quite clone enough get on the same level.
