@shaneqt  I miss my old Land Rover 😞  but she was a bit like driving a Brick down the road............

I love my Gen 2 mate. vows like shit. the old one is slot of fun too though. just the brakes fall off when it rains. and when it see corner it turns into a old landrover.

@Marina   Yup, I have always liked the V-Max engine design. Who would have thought "Hey, lets cram an outboard boat motor into a motorcycle and see what she'll do". SWEEEEEEET! The only drawback on the early bike was the frame. the Wishbone to high rise Backbone (Harley chopper style) frame, screws the pooch for the front suspension. Now the new V-Max with the Modular frame, that's the bike I would ride for sure!

she is a tidy example. doesn't get ridden much now. sits in storage as on the Gen 2.
