Cop Car

OK, Bogie, you make me sorry, now, that I didn't write one of my thoughts: I can't even tell you if it's the same bike! My ignorance of bikes is enormous!!!

BTW: Congrats on your new baby. May you enjoy it in good health for many, many years. Good for you!

The bikes themselves look much alike (except the losers on the new bike, which are difficult to see in the pictures). But I figured that the color change might be the clue needed. However, you never know how color will look on someone else's monitor, so it can be tough to tell.

I don't know what "losers" are on a bike. No, I could not tell there was a difference in color. One thing that I did notice, but I figured might be due to a difference in loading, was the difference in front wheel struts. Oh, well, you didn't really expect me to come up with the right answer, did you?

For revenge, if I remember this "test" long enough, I'll test you on airplanes. *laughing*

I meant to write, "...difference in length (or extension) in front wheel struts."

Lowers are the leg protectors that are attached to the engine guards on full dresser bikes. My new bike has them, my old bike didn't. I will admit, the lowers don't stick out on any of my pictures, so I will post a picture where you can definitely see them.

I am impressed that you noticed the length of the front wheel struts. I never really noticed, but it is true that the new bike is a bit longer, and probably part of that is on the struts.

Thanks for furthering my education - one more time! "Full dresser"?

Even on aircraft I tend to notice the (landing) gear configuration more than other particulars. I immediately differentiate an F-18 from an F-14 by the main gear configurations.
