  • Hello from Russia

    Firstly, sorry for my google english
    My name is Vitaly.
    Road Star XV1600 is my second bike. The first was Drag Star XVS400.
    I love to remodel my bike.
    I bought it three years ago, it was slightly beaten.
    Since then, I constantly change it.

    When bought ...

            well hell f'n o (that's hello with a profanity stuck in the middle from an old marine)...i'd say welcome but i'm not the welcome committee...speaking of committees, if you're "connected" in a bureaucratic sort of way i have a favor to ask...i don't give a shit about hillary's emails but if anyone over there has some nude photos of her when she was going to college it would make my mellenia...there's an extra $100 if she's spanking trump using a magazine with his picture on the front...

            your bike looks great, there are a couple iterations of your paint scheme over here and they generally lean towards the army in a ww2 retro look...never cared for the rectangle side bags but they certainly give your bike the finishing touch...

            it is great to hear from folks from other nations...if the land bridge between north america and eurasia forms real quick maybe i'll ride over...until then stop in often and bring some friends along...hell, even if they ride hondas or triumphs, no one is perfect...zing of the wild frontier...

            ps...if you're part of the crew that's meddling in our elections please say so now...i don't need the fbi knocking on my god damn door asking me why i'm colluding with the ruskies...i think my wife is a commie and i get enough grief dealing with her atrocities...zing the ever tactful...

              I think the people of America and Russia are much closer to each other than politicians tell us about it.
              I really want to go to America to ride a Fat Boy . Someday I will do it.
              And I think you will like it in Russia, because hospitable, friendly people live here.
              PS... I have no relation to the elections in the USA ​​​​​​​)))
              And on the radio, I love listening to the "country" channel

              ok so i abbreviate everyone's name to a couple initials for brevity and yours are ak, please tell me you're nick name isn't "47" man i'm not trying it just comes out that way...i'm with you all the way on politicians and i hope my response up there didn't paint a picture otherwise...if you like country music you no doubt have heard the song "were you born an asshole or did you work at it your whole life"...well, to tell a family secret I was born an asshole and i've been perfecting it for the last 70 years...my best to you and yours...zp...

              ps...i want to visit kamchatka...i saw a nature show on pbs 15-20 years ago and it is beautiful and wild...probably no paved roads but i can ride a dirt bike...zp...

              Bought a pipe to make the steering wheel. But the pipe did not fit. Found at work a piece of construction fittings

                          very nice customization you've done. If you get a chance it would be great to get a better look at the tail light and headlight setup you've done.

                                Representing Scorpion Gulch, Arizona. I like the military motif especially the ammo box saddlebags. Your English is just fine, better than most of the Americans on here.

                                    From California. I like what you've done with the bike. Are those handlebars made from rebar? [not sure what you call it over there.]
