Hello

Hi everyone. I picked up my SCR950 from Del Amo Motorsports. 54 out the door was what they advertised and they did not disappoint.

I’ve owned a ‘02 v-star 1100, ‘79 xl11, ‘81 seca II, ‘04 Harley sportster 1200, ‘00 Harley FXDX.

I just rode my dads Harley from Los Angeles to Pittsburgh for him have out there.

Welcome to the forum! You must either really care about your dad or really enjoy riding.

DAMMIT! You stole my line. Here's my backup pun...
Harley Davidson....
Still the most efficient way to turn gasoline into noise w/o producing any horsepower! 🤣

Ooph.... That doesn't say much for my SCR then because my sons Harley walks away from me on my SCR.

I'm referring to the bike in the right side of the photo with the ape hangers, not the one he is riding.....

My SCR can beat that one he is riding. Lol

I always find a lot of Americans are hard on Harley’s - I can only presume it’s because there’s so many over there, that you’re bound to see some broken down etc. Maybe the Japanese have the same opinions of the “big 4”?? My dad and I have had 5 between us, and not any bother with any of them. I put 17000 miles on my Dyna, and can’t really remember one issue with it.

And yes, most Harley’s will “walk away” from an SCR - I dare say even an 883 would give it a good run - so complaining about their lack of horsepower on an SCR forum is a bit funny, Mr Jevers!!!

I tell my jokes purely out of jest. Harley DOES make a nice bike, but not MY cup of tea (see what I did there?)!😜
My good friend just traded in his '02 Road King with 77k miles and was pretty reliable. Heck, I almost bought a new one a few years back when I stumbled upon a Honda VTX 1800rs for half the price! I have since owned 3 of them and am looking for another. Each to their own! Have fun on your ride, Ben! Jevers

My scr is a daily driver in Louisville that I also use to visit my property near the TN boarder. Two hours interstate and paved roads.. just under a mile on gravel roads.. then a bit up a dry Creek run. When Harley riders bluff shade I tell them:
right tool for the right job. If I rode a Harley it would be like four wheeling in a Corvette.. hella fun for five minutes and then just real expensive.

......sounds like you need the Sportster which recently did the Mexican “Norra 1000”.
