    I was under the impression that Saxon is out of business.

    Hasn’t this been done already, or… was that Mexico?

    3. Hope he enjoys 19th Ave in San Francisco (CA Hwy 1)
    4.Ride CA1 from Tam Juction to Piercy and from Carmel by the Cash Register to San Simion for a real ride.

    I wonder who Saxon got to build the bike, cause nothing they build would make it anywhere but the repair shop. This was another fine example of a bunch of people that knew next to nothing about manufacturing try to enter the wonderful world of motorcycle building.

    Would you care to elaborate on that Lee? We’ve only recently received the Saxon brand here in Australia ( full complianced for our local market, but with a starting price around $50K you wouldn’t want to be buying a dud.

    I now own the bike he road. Saxon is alive and doing well. the bike uses a S & S motor, that runs better than most and is a joy to ride. oh ya “Lee” check your facts before opening your mouth!

    I own a 2006 Firestorm and must say I love it. Great bike.

    I own a 2008 Saxon Sceptre and a HD Softail Deluxe and a MV Agusta Brutale 910R. Love ’em one and all. The Saxon is special. Try one, Lee.

    I own a 2006 Firestorm and love it. 96in S&S motor runs great and the ride is unbelievable for this type of bike. The bike handles better than most HDs I’ve spent time on. I’m guessing the rumor of Saxon going out of business was a bad one….. I can say it would be a shame if it did happen.

    I used to work for a saxon dealer and stupidly traded my victory in for a warlord with 5 years of payments. The idiots who build these bikes should hang it up before someone else dies or gets badly hurt. First off they had problems with the batterys shorting out to the bottom of the seat …. there fix was to cut holes in the bottom of the seat where the teminals went so not to put pressure on the terminals …….. how about facing the battery the proper way with terminals forward ….DUH ! mine came with RC components wheels, one day on my way home I hear a high pitch whine and a pop , before i had time to react i was riding into oncomming traffic with no control of my bike. The front wheel bearings baked and blew apart at 35mph. Thank god it didn’t happen the day before when I was doing 70 on the parkway or I’d be dead. I managed to keep the bike upright and just missed hitting a car comming the other way. Another great thing about the saxon line is the shit roadmax tranny from china. I missed 3rd gear shifts countless times and thought a piston was going through the top end the last time. They took the bike back and changed the wheels to P&M chaged the brakes to brembos, changed the tranny to primo 6 spd, and supposedly rewired the entire bike because every now and then I’d go to start it and the bike was dead. That problem persisted for moths after I got it back and I finally figured out that the coil cover was designed so stupidly that the ignition switch was smashed against the coil and the wires were crushed. So now that I have completely taken every nut and bolt off , fixed all there shotty workmenship I actually have a bike that runs. You wont find a saxon logo anywhere on the bike and those meth heads can go F*ck a goat !
