I don't get it. I love motorcycles, just some more than others.
I am the same way, I dig motorcycles, all of them, some I choose to look at, some I invest my time and money in.

I have two 05s (Ultra... with some stuff and a CVO that has been worked) that will kick the **** out of anything bone stock. The new 107 or 114, take your pick.

Yes I got a extensive test ride on a 17 SGS. You are right about the power delivery. It's not like what we are used to where you learn the sweet power band spot. I took a bunch of pictures.

The stupid garage talk app is notorious for incorrect post counts among other things.
