I have to say it.
I tried not to say it, but the temptation overwhelmed me.
I'm so sorry.
Well, not really. The Florida Stromtroopers are a cordial bunch, and within a few weeks there will be an opportunity for you to meet some of us and swap some lies and hear some terribly old jokes.
I appreciate that the DL-650 and the VTX-1300 are very very different. I have a bike that differs from the DL-650 in the opposite direction, and it is fun in its way too. I have verified that it is indeed more fun to ride a slow bike fast than it is to ride a fast bike slow.
If you read some recent threads in the Florida section, you will get some glimpses into what motivates us, and what we do about it.
