For the life of me I can't remember this guy's name. Doug maybe?
Dude if you stop by set me straight.
Fueling up here in Terra Alta, there is a lot of HD around.  
And this is one of the cleanest ones I've seen.

Jimmy was waitin on his order when I stopped in for a shake.  Said he paid $4,700, came with a 3 year rider warranty, had put almost 10k on the clock with no issues, and loved it.  We talked about the riding areas, he knew where the good twisties were.  The Royal Enfield 650 Interceptor.  A deal.

TJ is a Union Electrician, and has one hell of factory chopper.
I think he said it's a 2003.  103 CI motor.  From the factory.  9 foot and change long. Bought it in Texas,
It's a soft tail. I thought it was rigid.
Went over the whole thing himself.  
Paint, ha, something like 10 hours painting and 14 hours wet sanding.  The krinkle effect he got with
cans from autozone and cellophane paper.  Only thing he bought was the decal on the tank.  The sissy bar, home made.  Rewired the whole thing, has the led lights going on also.  

One of the coolest choppers I've ever seen.  We talked for a bit, I can't remember all of it, if TJ stops in maybe he will elaborate on it a bit.

That V-Rod is killer. Really a looker.
There once was a biker named Double-Fat. Who rode all over like a cafeined gnat.
When he once tried some Frenchy booze, His skills improved the more he wooz'd-
And he was heard to mumble, "Dood- that's where it's AT!"Uncle Ernie-4-24-2011

Straight pipe on a sport bike?! Don't think I've seen that before.

Yeah, I asked him if it was a 2 stroke when I first saw it,

Those guys were flying, all 4  passed me at once in my work van 20 minutes earlier in another town maybe 8 miles away.

The last guy just squeezed back into our lane, avoiding a head on with a car coming in our direction,
all of em, wide open, T-shirt's and sneakers, never let off

Waiting around for the grocery shopping to get done I noticed this sweet Yamaha sitting in the parking lot.

"Ben" has had this bike but for a few weeks he told me.  
Previously owned a 600cc sportbike, and was gonna get another one, till he saw this 900.
Said he got this 2016 with low miles for 5k.
And loves it.
Told me unlike the 600 this had the low end grunt, and was just more comfortable to ride.
Notice the shifter setup.  Also, instead of your Dads crash bars, those knobs on the frame I think he called frame sliders. No ABS, which I like, clean and simple.

I don't care what they say, naked is it.

Vertically stacked (kind of redundant) transmissions cause that shifter rod deal. The yield is a shorter engine, front to back.

There's also axle sliders to protect the front and rear bits from dragging too much.
Supports splitting everywhere.

Saw this one in Lowe's parking lot, here in WV. Right next to the University Campus. Blue and Gold, that's the Mountsineers colors.






Seems a lot of the young guns a bopping those frame sliders on.......

Saw this gleaming piece of costume jewelry while on a poker run yesterday.
