Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

It's a cruiser. I've had a handful of chopper cruiser bikes and they are a lot of fun - slow and low. They also make great dog runners.

Prefer the Fatboy of the two, but nothing I'd really want to get.

I've been riding/racing motorcycles for years. When I'm on my DRZ400-SM, I kill the motor going down hill and I put a bicycle bell on it one time. When I ride by cyclists, I ring my bell and yell "ON YOUR LEFT!".

Anyone on a Harley Davidson should be shot in the throat. "No, it's cool. I didn't want to be having a conversation when you were in a three block radius. Oh man, and now I don't have that burdensome hearing to deal with!"

Shot. In. The. Throat.
