I remember when GT picked up Dyno they used the Dyno brand for their Freestyle bikes and kept the racing line to the GTs.

Hey so are Dyno bikes the same as Gt? What is the difference? Are they both good companies?

"GT Bicycles is a large American manufacturer of road, mountain, and BMX bicycles. The company was founded in 1979 by Gary Turner, a welding engineer and Richard Long, a bike shop owner. The company merged with Schwinn in 1998, but the conglomerate went bankrupt in 2001, and was acquired by Pacific Cycle. Dorel Industries acquired Pacific Cycle in 2004."

Simple child. Harley does not make a flat 6, certainly not one with Honda written on the fairing. But I object to the riceburner comment, since it's made in the US of A.

And a radio. But I didn't get the CD changer. The engine is bigger than the one in our Scion. More horsepower too.

A radio is not dumb on a touring bike. Kids on sport bikes generally are though.
