Re: The Rune is here!

The local shop just got the Rune, like five minutes ago. It's getting taken off the truck as I type this. They'll have it prepped within the hour, so I'll be there to drool (from a respectful, spatter-free distance) and take pics in about an hour

Re: The Rune is here!

Haven't paid much attention to the Rune, but I was checking it out in the latest mag. Damn, that's one long, big, heavy, expensive 6 cylinder bike!

Where's that 'this thread is ...' ?

Its much simpler to go HERE if you want pics of the Rune.

I sat on one at the Daytona 200 and they are shhaweet! Pictures do not do the Rune justice. I would opt to get it over a 'Hardley', but otherwise - get a Goldwing and save $8k.

Re: The Rune is here!

I dunno. The Rune just doesn't do it for me.

It sounds like Chain has had a downpayment on his for a few months.

Eh?


I love the Rune, if I had a bunch of extra coin laying around I'd buy one. Of course, if I did somehow I'd have to grow a beer gut or something, I'm too skinny for the cruiser set.

Re: The Rune is here!

Haven't checked out any sites on it, but I read that there is no tachometer? Why is there no tac?

Re: The Rune is here!

Although it's an ugly piece of 'Fat Bastard's' . It does look a hell of alot better in person. But it still looks like an old time Locamotive that belogs on rails.

Re: The Rune is here!

OK, here are a few. Keep in mind that it still has the factory coating (cosmoline?).
