I guess you're probably right, what with all the upkeep and parts searching - a 1st gen probably is more expensive

I think what we have here is a fine example of reverse pejorativation. Oh poor, poor 1st genners. Please forgive them for that which they do not know.

I got enough in my 1st Gens to buy a couple 2nd Gens. Don't want one. Slower, don't look as good, don't handle as good. !st Gen comes with gear selector, tach, clock and a few other things I've forgotten.
And who was clowning around while I was gone??

Actually, the RSV's come with a gear selector, as do the 1st gens. However, the 1st gens also come with a gear position indicator on the Royales.



And a 1st gen is so cool it doesn't need the HD look-alike faux air cool fins.

Seems to me like the 2nd gen's aren't trying to be anything they were not manufactured to be unlike some V-Max wannabes who never will truly be.

You getting ideas???? First you need to get your 1st gen back together. Probably need to do the carbs, since it has been about 6 years, in your garage. Maybe just pass the 1st gen off to Scot or Ben, as you slowed down to 2nd gen speeds.

Also, I had the 86 & trailer airborne, on final approach to Big Tom's, crossing railroad tracks. This was a week or so, after meeting up with you again, Dogman & Evan.

Freebird, if I put the trailer in the front and fill the tires with oil or earl won't I have to convert it to a Di system to make right turns? Just seems I would end up with a CanAm badge on her and I didn't like the ride of that thing???

Although the SAE document in the following link doesn't use the term winter it does refer to the one without the W as the summer operation rating. "To correct this problem, a new low-temperature classification was eventually added to the Standard in 1950, and it became possible to grade oils by a low-temperature W-grade designation, such as SAE 5W, 10W, or 20W. Now the consumer could ask specifically for an SAE 5W grade, at that time the lowest of the three low-viscosity SAE W-grades, for cold weather driving, or an SAE 40 grade, for example, for summer operation." From url http://www.sae.org/news/releases/rightoil.htm.

Those so called faux fins have kept my hands warm on many a cold day riding.

Oh yeah a 1st Gen also has those heat vents coming out the side cover.... Great hand warmers. Foot warmers if you pick your foot up a little.
