Which side of the definition are you using here? ;-

Virago is a pejorative name for a verbally abusive and angry woman. It is derived from Latin virago, which means "resembling (-ago) a man (vir)" and was a positive word used to describe heroic females, usually in a mythological context.

I never did understand why they chose that name. Makes you wonder what the V stands for in the V-Max - it's meant to be a right harradin to ride :-)

Here's my baby, and his name is Casper.



I named him that because even though they are hard to see in this pic, he has Ghost Flames on the Tank & Fenders. I am the original owner & put every one of the 14K miles on him myself.

I just put down a large chunk of change on an Evolution, so I'll be making payments on THAT for 3 more years. Casper is great for short rides and around town, and I'll keep the bike for that reason. But I want the Evo so I can ride to Sturgis this year, and maybe even go visit someone in Georgia afterwards.

Don't recognise the model - presumably it's a cruiser and I guess 83 cubic inch which would be a 1360 cc. Have a word with Nomad - he's on a similar bike and one of the good guys to boot :)

I ride a VFR 800 - before that it was a CBR600. Cruisers don't work too well on our roads.

I did see an Indian ride past the other day but that was exceptional - first I'd seen in decades.

Over here American bikes are Harleys or Buells (or Goldwings but we don't mention that).

Having driven the roads in the South West USA I can understand the attraction but, sadly, cruisers don't really work on British roads.
