Skinny front tire. Wide glide or softail custom.
Don't pay RC much attention. He is stuck on four cylinders. I chose the '85 Shadow 700 over the magna back in the spring of 86.
Just like anything else, if you ride within the limits of the bike you can have a thrill at much lower and safer speeds. My Moto Guzzi Cafe is a blast to ride at 45 mph. The concours and especially the Triumph Trophy were boring at 45 mph.I like things with dual front disc brakes, decent , full sized tires and such. Not so much sport oriented machines, but machines built more for performance, and safety as opposed to a look.
When I see narrow front tire, single disc, and a skinny tire, that screams look. And it does look nice.
What bikes did you have before we knew you , here? You've had a diverse bunch.
I loved the 85 magna. Its engine was amazing, and it even handled pretty well.
You say that but are you sure? If for example, he was on a sportbike perhaps he could've reacted to the car he hit the fender and maneuvered? It's much more difficult to maneuver a bike that has comfy suspension and weighs 700 lbs and a Cadillac wheelbase.Coincidentally, the guy was from Magna.
The wreck had nothing to do with his choice of bike, though.
