    I ride a hyosung gt250 as a commuter. It's cheap to run but I have a craving for more power. I get my full in November so I may upgrade to something like a 600 hornet.

    Good eye @Mathias just something a little different. Had a reverse lobed cam made up for it.

    Good idea for a point of difference. Years ago a fella I know reversed the head on his Triumph Thunderbird 650 for the same reason, it was running E3134 cams front & rear so no issue there but it got very hot with no air cooling.

    Harley Davidson Bogata COLUMBIA.....just thought Iíd post this.Spend a lot of time down this way,The owner,who Iíve met on several occasion,ps,bloody nice bloke.Woukdnt let me take photos of inside,but the interesting wasnít the bikes,pretty much a standard HD setup,it was the security....lol.... cameras,steel gates,a,arms ,all the standard security stuff,.....but it was the two security blokes he has,packing 10 mm sub machine guns,and sidearms.....24/7 protection.....HDs down this way are for the rich,famous and connected,and are worth stealing.....not sure whether I felt safer,or more concerned about getting caught in the crossfire......the building itself like a brick shithouse....and the girls he has working for him.......penthouse stuff for sure

    What was the point of this 'discussion'? Bikes differ. Cruisers are silly in my opinion. That's my say only. There really is no reason to choose either. I've seen brilliant riding on both. It's all about the bloke behind the bars.

    No-ones claiming their bike to be the best, just the best fit for their particular need.
    Personally I eenjoy seeing all types, 2 stroke / 4 stroke, dirt, sport, cruisers.
    I like seeing the huge variations on a 2 wheeled powered vehicle.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !
