That Grizzly 700 fuel injected I have is a beast , yes there are new ones out there more powerful but I have gotten hurt many a time on that beast , wife cant drive it , its gets away from her and she rolls it everytime
We were busting up a new neighborhood one time , not paved and still in red clay but they had put in the sewer and water mains . So I am riding alon g bout 45-50 and this manhole comes out of no where so I cut it into a drift but it was too late , mid slide the rear wheel snagged it and kicked it back around the other way , the impact itself was no fun but the roll was even worse .
As you can tell , I dont have much respect for the Harley yet , it has yet to skin my ass good enough and the way I ride I will be lucky if thats all it does .
I never cared to ride a bike , I had a few times on hondas and crotch rockets and never liked it till Dad bought that sportster and I took it for a spin.
I was instantly addicted , there is nothing like a Harley Davidson
I usually push whatever I have or am driving over the limit to see how far I and it can go and do , how bad I get hurt its the judge of if I keep doing it .
I believe and it may sound very stupid to some of you but I believe '' IT '' it being what ever I am drive or riding can sense when you get spooked , when you get spooked is when you loose it . Respect can go along way , fear just takes all the enjoyment out of it . I can still respect a vehicle but I do my best to never let it scare me .
My 56 newyorker scared me , I would be shaking everytime I got out of it .
When the front wheel bearing race explodes through the hub @ 138mph in a 5000 lb sled with no seat belts , that will put the fear of God in you , and thats why that car is parked right now . I knew If I kept that motor in that car I would kill myself , it was the one car I could never tame if you will .
Now that motor is going in a jeep wrangler
