Think you can ride? How 'bout tangling with these Harley riders?

How did this end up beening about which bike is faster and handles better?

No other Video on the net has a couple of big harleys taking corners that fast period.

For Harley Riders we are very fast in the corners.

It is about the rider and because we are very fast for harleys in the corners, under

130mph we can keep up with joe normal sportbike dude,

Now you pro riders who hammer it right up to just before the corner and use the full

force of that great brake system will out brake me and leave me in the dust. But most

street riders do not do that. I get down to this road in the video a couple times a year and

alot of groups of sportbikes go up it. So next time I will take a video up the same road

with me passing some sportbikes and then keeping up with the rest and post for you boys


"For Harley Riders we are very fast in the corners."
Fast is relative. The title is "Think you can ride? How 'bout tangling with these Harley riders?"
And I say there are a great many sport bike/sport touring riders that would embarrass you guys, not because you can't ride but because the equipment you chose is inferior. You are the ones tooting your horn. Again physics is physics and on a twisty road fast Harley is an oxymoron. And that guy on the wing would eat you alive.



The guy on the Wing - you mean Yellow Wolf? The guy can ride - and that's the bike to do it with, if you remember to keep your foot ABOVE the shifter in corners -

Gold wings are amazing motorcycles. Not only are they the very best at what they are designed for, but excel at things that one wouldn't expect. Ripping through a twisty road for one.

Just came across this site because it showed up on my youtube video when it was posted
here. Man ! I didn`t post it here. Some of you boy`s really came down on me. I will have to
go and kick my pitbull and beat the hell out of my wife(sister) to make me feel better.
It is me in the video. It was are last ride of the year at the end of sept and the first time
I used the video recorder. The lead bike is a 07 roadglide, it is totally stock he just fills his
airshocks to the Max.He has ground his foot boards right down but it does not slow him
down . My bike (video bike) is a 07 dynaglide with 1 inch lift aftermarket shocks, fork brace,
sport demon tires.


I apologize on behalf of many knuckleheads here...heck you showed the video and are still bashed with no slack...some of that was in fun......Rice burners and hogs carry their stereotypes with them...

Not everyone with a sport bike could easily keep up with you in my estimation...been riding over 35 years....

Would never buy a Harley myself but you have done well and showed good proof....

more power to ya...


isgood!!!


Thanks for the kind words!

You're being praised by the resident donkey-fucking janitor - and you're thanking him for the kind words? Hate to tell you but PUTO only rides bicycles....

Here he is in all his glory - little dated, but still funny

Actually Ted, mine eats 1800 GL's...so it is fucking fast! I can wheelie it in 1st and 2nd. Now fast for that pig is a straight line, and it's relative to the word "fast"...

Don't try that in corners though - fucking thing tank-slaps in a straight line - LMFAO

Shit it probably slaps if you take a hand off the bar to wave at someone.

More reasons you can't wave

Afraid it will invalidate warranty.

Leather and studs make it too hard to raise arm.

Refuses to wave to anyone whose bike is already paid for.

Afraid to let go of handlebars because they might vibrate off.

Rushing wind would blow scabs off the new tattoos.

Angry because just took out second mortgage to pay luxury tax on new Harley.

Just discovered the fine print in owner's manual and realized H-D is partially owned by those rice-burner manufacturers.

Can't tell if other riders are waving or just reaching to cover their ears like everyone else.

Remembers the last time a Harley rider waved back, he impaled his hand on spiked helmet.

They're jealous that after spending $30,000,they still don't own a "fast bike"

I wave at everyone on a bike, just to see tank slappers.

Good thinking Ted!

I usually just throttle hard and lift it to stop the slap...

I'll be watching for guys like you out there.

What bikes will really surprise you are BMW adventure bikes. I was riding a really nasty twisty road yesterday and a BMW passed me going in the other direction and he was going quickly.
I went to the top and turned around and then ran him down and passed him....but he stepped it up a bit and hung in when he had no business going that fast. I looked in the mirror and I could see him not that far back. He was cooking.

The GS'S are serious handlers Ted...they're not terribly quick in a straight line, but can easily scrape the aluminum rear cases in the turns. I have a few friends who can really ride - and they have the GS'S and adventure tourers. I did a Dragon ride a few years back with one of them, who's an ex bike racer/ex state cop. He blew everything away passing on the inside/outside/topside LOL - with sparks flying from both sides of the cases...and he didn't skip a beat. The sport bike riders were freaking with this guy passing them on the Gap like they were standing still - on knobby tires too. These bikes are serious contenders.

Those GS's are heavy bikes but, they handle amazingly well.
There is a guy who does some way out stunts with one on Mulholland doing 100' long stoppies and wheelies all the way up the hill around the bend.
His opposing cylinder head covers are both sraped up looking bad but, it is because he drags the cylinders in the turns leaving a spark trail in broad day light.

I know a few guys that can ride the wheels off those things. This guy was good, the section he hung in there on was a bit tricky. You have to be careful because all the corners are blind.
