    I was expecting a baby v-twin but instead it is just a complete blow bag. What exactly about that thing has anything to do with HD?

    I was going to comment on the build quality dropping with manufacturing taking place in China, but in HD's case it might actually improve!

    The owner's will feel ripped off, no more Loud Pipe's Save's Live's motto.
    They'll have to cut up some Tuba's and mount them direct to the motor to try and amplify the noise or something ?

    The other Harley comment that will no longer be true is:
    Harley Davidson, the most effective way to turn gasoline into noise without producing any horsepower

    The difference is that this one is true, but the "Loud Pipes ... " one is rubbish. :p

    They probably won't go around corners, that's one of their trademark qualities

    I miss the old Scalextric slot cars. Apart from having a track that went everywhere in my bedroom, we used to race them at a purpose built 8-lane race track near Stones Corner (Brisbane). From memory, the world record for (scaled) speed was something like 1,000mph. Moved to RC cars when I got a bit older, but that's getting off topic (sorry Chief).

    :lolsign: .... I had a massive Scalectric track as a boy .... all the old school cars and extras that I used ... everything was rebuilt , redone , repainted a zillion times .... including the barriers and control tower etc .... and yes I remember I had a larger (wateva scale that was) open wheeler that I used on the big purpose built indoor track a few suburbs away ... if u were too young or had no car u could be a spotter around the track to put the cars back in the slot if they crashed.
    I think I rebuilt/remodelled those slot cars 2 zillion times .... and here we are still doing it just on the top scale :D

    Still a goer it seems

    That track looks like the one I used to race on. Plenty of fond memories right there.

    Bit bigger than the one in Tamworth, but of similar layout and only four cars wide.
