I'd trade my Wing for a rune in a heartbeat. Of course my Wing is down again. It's not the Wing's fault. I just can't afford parts for her right now. I'll have it running again by Monday evening I think. Eventually I'll jus tbuy the new parts she needs and not have this trouble all the time.

Sorry to offend Iraqi Ram, each to their own I guess, the Rune is certainly a work of art, but not to my particular taste.

Anyway, just to clarify, I would like to see a version of the Valk introduced, on the same lines as the origional, but with a bigger engine if you like PP!!

No offense taken at all on this side. I was just messing around withthe .



Rhune grows on you after a while, just need to look at it long enough to appreciate it. Or ride one. It's a nice smooth bike with crazy power. But that's just my opinion . peace.

My brother inlaw just got a rune, awesome power,super smooth, put a cruiser it aint. I rekon it has a 50 mile seat if that. You could call it a work of art on wheels, but it's an around town bike. if a function of a cruiser is to carry the rider long distance, the rune doesn't fit.

I would like some of that heat, Perhaps i will change my 1800 comfort for a rocket 111, winter bike as the rune doesn't appeal to me,as i would not be able to smile or wave at other bikers especially wing riders

cough,cough splutter.........try again ciaran, for sheer exhilaration and rideability the rocket3 outdoes both those bikes and is much cheaper.....just my 2 cents and yes i have ridden them extensively..
The Rocket will fry you with engine heat. No just my opinion alone but every other owner I've talked with.

Tell you what fellas.
Round up a couple of litres of powerplant and some fancy rattlecans and I'll have a go at her.

Had a dream a couple of nights ago.......

seems I had taken a naked 1100 Wing, and dressed it up like an adventure tourer....

kind of like an old school GS....... raised fenders, knobbies, hard welded racks, removeable aluminum boxes, flat black paint.......

a two-up bike to go anywhere......

like to Norway's Nordcap, or even the Himilayas.........

why not?

Bored one night, (apparently January 3, 2006), I bastardized Randakk's endurance special in Photoshop to create this: I think it was around the time when I was watching the Long Way Round series.
