I have wanted to get into the bikes for a few years now but have no bike experience. I just like hasslin' people for spending the big money on parts that many see as a "waste of money" because I am guilty of the same thing. The bikes sound bad ass, definately wish I had a summertime motorized persuit. One of these days. Cuzz, you ridden your dual sport bike in the UP yet this year? Life would be a drag without a few "money pits" laying around.
Yeah I looked at Streetbobs when I got mine but didn't like the rear fender/tail light, and didn't like it without forward controls. The fatbob just felt like the perfect riding position to me so I jumped on it. Pretty similar bikes though.
We're suppose to head up on the 6th still, I guess we're just riding to Baldwin and riding the area for a couple days. One of my Uncles will be here from California next Friday, then we're gonna nail out exact plans.

"The power of 24 DOLMAR chainsaw engines is fed into to a 5-speed Harley-Davidson transmission by a series of twelve toothed belts. For use in the Dolmette the engines were tuned and tweaked to deliver 5.2 kW of power (7.1 PS) at 10,000 rpm. Maximum torque delivery is 5.5 Nm at 7,750 rpm. When all 24 are combined, the result is a 24-cylinder power with a total displacement of 1.9 litres, a power output of 125 kW (170 PS) and 130 Nm of torque at the centrifugal clutches. Twelve engines are mounted in two rows of six on either side of the drive belt casing. Each is held in place by means of two threaded studs that normally serve to secure the guide bar to the chainsaw power head. The individual motors are coupled together in sets of three by means of a double-sided belt, making up eight modules in all. The individual engines are not rigidly connected; instead they deliver their torque through the centrifugal clutch that is a standard feature of every chainsaw."
I'm loosing my mind, but as long as I keep the part that tells me when I gotta pee I should be OK.
Dang, and my wife wants to use a ZipCar to commute back and forth across the city. I would be interested in matching your purchase if I was sure there was proper ankle support. I broke my ankle riding this winter and the doctor says I need to make sure any kind of recreational vehicle I have from here on out needs to be customized or I might not be able to walk in ten years.
