glad I got my iron barrel when i did. this does nothing for me.
Different strokes for different folks!   ;D

Too bad the AVL was short-lived but hopefully the UCE will be a success.

The american AVL models are way more beautiful then the european models!
They've kept the looks of the Classic models. The one we have in Portugal and Spain look a bit strange. They've mixed classic and modern parts  :-\
Today I've learned that for 2008 we will only have AVL's with EFI. No more Classics  :-[
The prices will go up, around 1000€.

Damn the Euro 3 regulations!  >:(

The AVL motor always reminded me of the RE 500 Fury with the Big Head motor of the early 60's.     Hutch
You learn from your mistakes, and I have LEARNED a lot.

Today I've discovered the new AVL engine with EFI.
The top engine is more beautiful that the "old" AVL. But the bottom engine lost a lost of it's carisma and beauty.
Even so, they've managed to keep the kickstart...
But the side covers... Man, they're so f...g ugly!  :'( >:(

Seriously R.E.I. please spend the extra couple of cents and replace the speedo face and needle with something a bit more in-keeping with the bike's style and not just using the one from the designer's son's toy bike!!!  It really irks me when manufacturers do this - its the same on the misses's dad's bike (Kawasaki VN 900), really nice fit and finish - except for the speedo, which has a plastic orange needle.  Cheapens the whole look of the thing, esp from your seat when you're riding it...sorry for the mini rant, but surely they could just have put a plain black and white one on?  Would have looked miles nicer!

We couldn't agree more about that being a less than great looking speedo
