    I went and found a Blast in 2008 and got back in the saddle. Traffic sucks let her learn om the most forgiving thing you can find.
    I got off bikes when wife was pregnant with #1 when we lived in a third floor apartment in CO. Her exact words were, “you can have your motorcycle or we can have a house.” My Sportster became the down payment on the house. Only took me 16 years to get back on with my ‘04 XB12S.

    Is that your way of saying a Buell 984cc motor doesn’t make enough power to be considered a liter bike? How dare you! Sir, might I remind you what we do to those who make insinuations as such.

    This is your first and last warning.

    I don't think the connotation of the "liter bike" slang has much to do with the literal size of the engine. I'll just tip-toe around the subject by mentioning even the latest and greatest 955 and 997cc V-twins are paired with the I-4 '.6 of a liter bikes' in Moto America.

    Liter bikes for noobs is dumb. Dank whoolies and dragging your knee on the street is dumb. We tried to tell him... and now he's learning to walk again

    Would it make things easier if we called them "quarter gallon" bikes? And to be clear, we're also not talking about fuel tank capacity, or the amount of beer you stole out of my fridge this afternoon, you hobo.

    You forgot the greatest 984cc V-twin ever. That Buell motor has soul that a Harley could never compete with.
