Default Re: Things are getting stoopid

The slogan isn't lame, just blah. What's lame, and what would be laughable if it wasn't depressing, is that someone thinks that the market for Harley clones is still viable. If Titan, by far the most prominent and well-respected of the clone makers, couldn't survive, I don't see how anyone else is going to come close.



If you want a Harley, buy a Harley. If you want a handbuilt American-boulevardier custom bike to ride three miles to a bar, either pay the tattoed welding artists one town over to build you one (if you're a fat-wallet mofo), or else get a Drag Specialties catalog and do it yourself, like the good ol' days.



Oh, and as if their pompous language mangling wasn't bad enough, they spelled "exquisite" wrong on their site, too.

"...competitively priced (retail) from $19,500 for our Rigid Fury MSR..."



Sorry, but there's no way I'm throwing a leg over something called a "Rigid Fury".

I wouldn't pay squat for a bike w/ no suspension, unless it was from the '30s.

Lame, boring slogan... doesn't make sense.

The stoopid part isn't the lame slogan, it's the fact that they think it's entitled to legal protection.



Next thing you know they'll sue Raytheon for making Patriot missiles.



By the way, what do you call a thousand lawyers at the bottom of the sea? An excellent start.

I hate stoopid, macho slogans. Whatever happened to "Come ride with us," or my personal favorite, "You meet the nicest people on a Honda"?

Hey, my sister is a lawyer. Oh well, at least she can swim.

The Honda slogan doesn't apply anymore.

Hey, I'm a lawyer. Because of your joke, we now all have to learn to swim when we go to law school. They're afraid of getting sued if someone goes through with your plan.



"Rigid Fury" *snicker* Shall we just start rattling off the tasteless jookes that come with that one? My mom rides an 883, but I think I'd hang my head in shame if she went around talking about riding a "Rigid Fury."

Default Things are getting stoopid

The subject line says it all. Grow up MO. Who cares about patented exhaust sounds or slogans? Lets post and discuss worthwhile topics like, how pissed off was Biaggi when he couldn't make that .013 second slingshot past Rossi to beat him in Austrailia. That guy made a hell of an effort in that race. Roberts just blew it out his ass the last part of the season. Rossi definently deserved the title. Kudos to all of the guys.
