Yesterday I decided to take a test ride on the new Harley Streetglide (nearly £18 grand... WT??) with the new, puny 1690cc motor.
What a pussycat. I got up to 75 before I realised the hi-fi whip antenna was caught up on the front bumper of a Ford Focus that had been parked up at the dealers and which I was now towing. Then to top that I found a pizza delivery moped, complete with spotty yoof rider, had been sucked into the air cleaner. Apart from that it pulled quite well from 35 in 6th. Went back and went into the BMW dealer next door (owned by the same franchise) and was rather taken by the R1200R. I think I’m going all minimalist in my old age.
