  1. could call it the ‘red head’ dunno about them Bare alloy or
    grey would have looked classier , use of carbon fibre is good
    the weight of some of these baggers is getting ridiculous,
    they need a big engine just to haul themselves around, the new
    harleys weigh in at over 400kg good luck trying to pick
    that up if it falls over.

  2. Goddammit where are the machine guns? They were called fortresses for a reason. False advertising! Boooo.

    (If you look at the head on photo you can even see the space where they should be – right under the indicators).
