Brilliant, sarnali:



..."midlife crisis village people dress up convention"...



is one of the better characterizations I've seen. And, no, discretion does not figure.

'Discrete' means 'separate from, distinct, not part of the mass'; the word you want is 'discreet'. I'd think that the word 'discrete' enters H-D's collective mind quite a lot, and features in their 'stand out from the crowd; stand up and be counted' marketing guff - but whether that works when there are thousands of wannabe lone riders all together is another question. Whatever the 100th anniversary is, discreet it most certainly isn't.
