The following is a quote from the December 2011 issue of Cycle World Magazine. It was written by Kevin Cameron and I thought it insightful and appropriate for many of us. I hope that you all will enjoy it, also.

"The appeal of singles is basic. They are simple, and in this simplicity there is elegance-and reliability. People can actually afford to buy and operate them. Their deep sounds are the voices of ancient gods. Above all, they are easy to live with, ideal tools for learning".

There's just something "better" about a thumper.

I love the way my shoulders get yanked tight right off idle,
They are easy and Cheap to work on, if necessary.

With the ridiculous torque.......ya might not hit 150 mph
but here in the real world it'll drag a fat chick up the side
of a mountain with a full tank and extra gear attached all
over it.

Fuel economy is usually very high (45-55mi per gal)

It's a small but very loyal market. Myself included.
This is my third 600+cc single.
