VaChop46, Got to say I do like that bike. I've always liked a BTSV with a custom tank, so you can look down and see those massive aluminum heads. As for the clutch, hey, wouldn't be near as much fun if anybody could do it. I teach the MSF courses up here in NYS, and I always enjoy the responses from the hand clutch set when I ride demos with my "suicide" setups. This would be the "experienced" course, where everyone rides their own machines, including instructors.
Merry Christmas all,
