New engine

It appears that all the laps I was doing around the local HD dealership was more than Mother Milwaukie could take... so it had to copy our engine Harley-Davidson?s New Milwaukee-Eight Big Twin Engine | Cycle World

Yeah, they are only 40 years behind Japan in twin technology. Maybe by the turn of the next century, they will have fully water cooled motors.
