    See, at this stage I would be leaning towards a Ducatti.  That harley looks so wannabe copycat
    Yeah mate, now you mention it’s copycat. Too many cues beside the Vtwin come to mind. But the MT01 series has stolen a few HD sales. Some old Harley riding mates also have MT01’s. Hate it when they take em on runs, can’t  keep up through serious twisties, nor the straights come to think of it :-)

    Apart from the shit flat seat, I don’t mind the look of the PanAmerica, could be tempted as a winter weekender if it rides ok.

    If it handles better, stops better, goes faster, is more reliable and cheaper than Ducati and the Jappers then it's in with a chance.
    Pan America looks just like Soapboxes avatar picture.

    Ok, yeah, I’m a tad slow. 
    So apart from the flat seat and the ucking fugly front, I don’t mind it.

    Is this a Clayton's Buell (the Buell you have when you're not having a Buell)??

    I am surprised to say that on first glance, I like the look of this.  I'll be watching with interest.

    Of course HD could follow this line for the "street" bikes and then go back to making the Harleys of old for us traditionalists....

    My $0.20 worth...


    Noit.
