Which video?
I'm guessing you mean the Rocket III....,

Me I'd love the Thunderbird with the 1700 kit and good shorty pipes. like so;



Orrr,
Yamahas Raider with pipes ...,



I got a torque Monster. Would just like a Cruiser for the majority of my riding now.
Just a small matter of cash flow...,

Rocket- 140hp/704 lbs dry

Diavel- 162hp/460 lbs dry

I LOVE TRIUMPHS, but I think the Diavel seems like a lot more fun. (A little easier on the old knees as well.)

But don't sweat it; You're not getting old anytime soon.

It and the America are high on my list. About $8k new and about 6 for a low mile used.
About 200 lb lighter than the bigger cruisers and all sorts of motor kits if I gotta have more...., which would likely...,
As good as the metric cruisers are, the Triumphs personality appeals to Me.

Of course I like the flat black..., add pipes, suspension work and a few personal touches Viola! happy grumpy old man!

I Ride: Yamaha Warrior
Had I had the chance to test-drive the Warrior for a month or so I might have passed on it. The seating position is not comfortable at all for long distance, at least for me. Low back issues and being locked into one position is a pain. And at anything over 60, the breeze tries to force my legs apart. Other than that, I love it.

The thing I liked about your warrior is a guy could fab up some different footpeg mounts and make it more of a midpeg bike to be able to shift body positions.
Shortening the shift linkage would be easy...,just a thought....,



Some of the first year Fatbobs came with midmounts...,but HD went away from that.

Its gonna happen.....,live with it.

Cruising is just another shade of 2 wheeling...,just like trailbikes to MX, etc.
Really, how many times have you two gone on a putt on a laid back bike?
Its frickin nice....,

Cant do the speed limit on the hyperbike and on the other end I cant do the speed limit on a cruiser.
Just another rolling road block I am....,

My pic fail above was to show something like this, I'm never going to ride something with my feet sticking out in front of me!



What do you think of this new Honda CTX700? Available with auto tranny and with or without fairing, but it has the cruiser feet forward pegs?!

I don't want to think about it, so I'm just going to keep living in denial of the inevitable.

You sit in a chair with your feet in front of you. You sit on a couch with your feet in front of you. You drive in a car with your feet in front of you. Granted, I've always ridden cruisers or standard bikes, but I've never quite understood why some have such a reluctance to have that same body stance on a motorcycle. I get why many (myself included) don't care the gynecological position of putting your boots way up on a set of highway/crash bar pegs, but the position of most cruisers' riding pegs is akin to a chair, sofa, or car...so what's the big deal. Try it...you might like it.
