    Unless that windshield was designed by the manufacturer specifically for that model, I would weigh heavily on "yes". The simple fact is the aftermarket shields tend to be a universal shield that gets...

    I won't claim I've seen every article regarding these sales, but where did you see them reported separately? I ask as the ones I've seen report them together.

    Different designs. For starters, the sub-liter Scout motor never existed under Victory, they all used the same "big twin" engine. Indian's "big twin" is noticeably different from the Vic's solitary...

    Of the Indian style? The Vulcan Drifter 1500 & 800 that debuted circa 1999. The 800 (pictured) nailed it better than any other modern incarnation that officially beared the name. Granted it was...

    So was Victory, but that didn't stop Polaris from dumping them. Polaris saw phenomenal growth once Arlen Ness got involved with the company. Which is probably why Polaris is padding their MC sales by...

    Honda has both a 300 and 500. While it might have been nice to see a modern EX500, it would seem Kawi was content with aiming for the middle ground with one model rather than offer up a pair that are...

    The big reason for apes is the ability to lean back on the long haul.

    That, and they just look hard-core-cool. :wink:

    Well that goes without saying. The point was I can still make a one lane U-turn with them, something a lot of "accomplished" riders have a difficult time doing with a stock bike. :wink:

    Not sure how to translate that but I can make a U-turn into the first/fast lane without a median on either bike without dropping a foot off the pegs. While neither bike is a canyon carver, I can...

    It's a personal preference, you're the one that has to ride it regularly.

    Personally it all depends on the bar height & width and seating stance for me, on my Shadow chopper I have the 10" bars on...

    Yet it is physically larger than a 80s or early 90's mini truck. Now that they're adding roofs and gull wing doors, I need to see if they're taller too. :wink:

    I distinctly recall reading several MC mags that it was the other way around: Polaris convinced the states that it was a motorcycle. Some of the states put up a lot of resistance (IIRC Texas being...

    A lot.

    Active members that have logged in sometime this year...well that's a whole 'nuther issue but if someone claimed 1% of that "a lot" it would probably be a liberal figure.
