Residents who live in the Willowick Drive area of Brentwood are upset a Harley Davidson dealership is moving, adjacent to their neighborhood. "The quality of life is what all of us that have been here for years want to preserve," explained resident Jeannie Suttle.
Harley Davidson of Cool Springs is moving into Mallory Park, which is just on the other side of a tree line from several neighborhoods. Residents are concerned about the amount of noise that will come from the new dealership, especially during special events.

Fresh off the unveiling of the new Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 and the launch of Project RUSHMORE, the company unleashed today two new motorcycles that expand its diverse line-up of street bikes, and put more models for more riders on the showroom floor of each Harley-Davidson dealer.
The mid-year release of the retro-cool Low Rider® and rangy SuperLow® 1200T completes the largest new-model launch in Harley-Davidson’s 110-year history and keeps the throttle pinned on the company’s accelerated, customer-led product-development process.

The wake of the "classic" and "retro" bike craze of the past several years has apparently caught up with Yamaha here in the United States this year. This June, Yamaha will start selling the single cylinder SR400 here in the U.S.A.. But didn't Yamaha used to offer the SR400 here before, you ask? Well its big brother, the SR500 was sold here in the States from 1978 all the way to 1999 and the bikes were/are very similar with the 500 engine being just a stroked version of the 400.
The new SR400 is not much different from the version that has been available in Japan since 1978 in basic specs and looks. Spoked wheels with a single disc in the front and a drum on the rear are still the formula for brakes in the new 2015 model as they were back in 1978 (although I'm sure the pads and calipers are improved).
Name of product: Yamaha competition off-road motorcycles
Hazard: The off-road motorcycle’s drive chain can detach and cause the rider to lose control, posing a crash hazard.
