    Headlight should be COMPLETELY taped over. You think you're fast, you dump your bike, poor sucker behind you rides through your broken glass at speed and falls down in the next turn when his tire is all gone.

I can't hate the pipe wrap in this case, the originals used them because of how close the pipes ran inside the fairing and this bike seems to have similar routing. Here is what I hate:

    - Are the shocks stock showa units? Cheap chinese? or XR1200 takeoffs? If chinese then fail
    - 21" rims? are you fucking serious? original bikes ran 18" front and rear. Here the 21"er's look like wagon wheels.
    - the headlight tape? that is still a thing?
    - the velocity stack sticks straight out, the originals had carbs that faced the rear of the bike, I just think the rider's knee is going to block that opening more than he/she would like.
    - new stock forks still seem kinda spindly.

    Overall I think this is great though and the direction HD needs to push their new street bikes. Not everybody wants a douchebag chopper wannabe crusier.

    One thing I really did like though, it looks like a useable motorcycle.
    Agreed, those wheels look ridiculous. Good looking bike other than the hoopty rims.

    I think you need to do years of study before you ever get near a cafe racer type of bike.

    This H-D is basically a dysfunctional POS build by an idiot. Trust me.

    Danger, is my business.

    Oh well, if you want a vigorous exchange of ideas and opinions, you are at the right forum. Don't take it personally.

    If all else fails, evolve bony body armor.

    For the most part this is a beauty. Anything goes into bikes these days but for the life of me I can't think of one good reason for 21s.....front to back.......for street. I mean it's for purely asthetics in my opinion but.......is this the coming new thing? I missed out on all other trends but maybe 21s for my CB........then I would be in the in.

    No not really. Ideal beauty is when form follows function with a degree of grace. There ain't no form, no function or grace here on that xrtt monstrosity.
