    The Fury looks great, but seems abit light in the engine. And it sure looks like a bike for short rides. The Raider is scheduled for some good long road trips this summer.

    true the raider has a bigger engine and a bigger tank but you have to admitt a little more gas would be nice.  I would be able to ride that much harder and not worry about running out as soon.

      Went To Honda's Corp Lobby Today

      I am and will always will be a fan of Honda.  They make great bikes. I love my CRF 450 and have owned the VTX 1800R model.  I put 42 grand on my VTX 1800R and the bike was rock solid.  Now the new 1300 Fury Chopper, Honda is one of my clients so today I went to their Corp office lobby and got a good look at this new bike.  The frame and tank and fenders look great.  Seat position is spot on.  It has a factory seat height of 27.7 inches.  I love the look and if I every purchased one it would be a great project bike.  Honda missed the mark on the 1300 verse the 1800 V-Twin. I think the fact that the new 1300 efi is a plus verse the 1300 with carb. I still think it would have been a better move to have used the 1800cc and should have had it as a belt drive verse the saft drive, but the saft drive makes for smooth shifting.  I still think it's a cool bike and I hope and wish them well.  I have four good pictures from my visit so maybe I should post these pictures for you come up with what you think.  I love my Raider's 1854cc's.

      Yeah, show us the pictures SWomack.
      I owned a Warrior so the 4.1 gal. tank is a bit more than what I'm used to, so it seems fine by me.
