Re: What's a REAL motorcycle?
The first motorcycle I ever drove was an old (OLD, 1940s or 50s I'm guessing) Harley Davidson frame that have been brought back to life by my elementary school classmate, neighbor, dairy farmer's son, who put an old chainsaw motor into the frame. This was in the early 1960s.
It had absolutely no low end power, but once it was up to speed it seemed to really fly. Bear in mind, we were in 6th grade, and the roads we were riding were the tractor access roads to the corn fields.
THAT was a REAL motorcyle!
Point being, a "real" motorcycle is what ever you think it is.
