    Well I would have to say Nascar is really not my thing, but then again I'm not into many big organized sport venues like F-ball and B-ball. Although we have a small local drag strip that I like to frequent once in awhile, armature guys/gals showing off their cars with some friendly competition. There is just something about that oval dirt/flat track and motorcycles that I like, could be the good memories it brings back of when I went as a kid with my Dad and Uncle. :)

    Dirt track racing is some of the best
    Handle bar to bar racing you'll ever see!
    Until you experience a Grand National you can't honestly comment.
    These riders are doing 120 to 140 mph
    Sliding just under control anywhere from
    8 to 25 laps. Ain't no one on here would stand
    a chance. I dare anyone on here to come
    to Springfield this Labor Day weekend to watch the spectacle!

    They raced here in Phoenix at the Turf Paradise mile long horse track this summer and the place was packed. Those kids are nuts.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the Indian/Harley rivalry rekindled.

    Go wrecking crew part two!!!!!!

    That is a big part of why I like it, they all seem to come down to the wire.

    Funniest part is the smaller HD bikes are made in India.

    They just ran the Peoria Illinois TT's last Sunday. I think it is one of if not the oldest continuous run AMA pro races. They used to run the 750's there but now they run the 450's

    That is true but the new Indian engine is from Switzerland.

    Interesting post in that I finally satisfied my need to say I owned a Harley at least once in my life time. I wanted a mid size bike to ride when I didn't feel like lugging my 850lb Cross Country around. I chose the Harley Street 750. After being on big bikes for over 20 years this 750 feels REAL SMALL. I had a Kawasaki Vulcan 750 in 1993-1995 -- that was my main ride. In 1996 I bought a Kawasaki Voyager XII and haven't gone backward since. I had a 1995 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500, a 2001 Yamaha Roadstar 1600, a 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner 1900, and now the 2014 Victory Cross Country. And now, a 2016 Harley Davidson Street 750. NOTE: I still only drive the Harley 1 mile (500 miles in two months) Note the Harley with the Victory helmet. HD_Street750Nasa.jpg for every 5 miles I drive the Cross Country.

    I am starting to see a few of these Streets around now. It took a little while, but they are out there. I got up close to one last week. Didn't look too bad, either. Build quality looked good. It does look like it might a little soft in the springs, but I will reserve judgement on that until/if I actually get to ride one.

    Seeing the Indian race will be something I look forward too. I think it was a good move for Polaris to take Indian back out there. And to get Jared Mees as the rider - that is big!

    harley gave vance + hines an OPEN CHECKBOOK when they went dragracing!! byron hines is a mastermind doing work for Ferrari etc. its like the NHRA WANTED harley to win allowing a bigger engine to compete with the smaller screamin in line 4 cyl imports, they keep revising the rules to cut down harleys winning but cubic $$$ + V+H overcome the changes. in reality the V-Twin can't run with in-line 4's screamin high rpm horsepower. if harley opens its WALLET this will get interesting for sure! a nice lightweight sporty 750 street indian could be interesting!!
