Default 7 Dwarfs

99.9% of members of this online magazine make thoughtful and insightful posts to articles/reviews that interest them but there are a few who are not so insightful or profound; Seruzawa, Sarnali, Longride, captainwhoopass, electraglider_1997, TatdNPrcd, aknopak and Buzglyd are the most proficient of Posers.

Look at the posts for this article about H-D 18 years of record profits and you will see that at least half of the posts are from one of them. At first I thought I could reason with them, "I have a dream analogy" on hindsight, judging from there response to it and there continued posting was like trying to teach a pig to sing, it only frustrates you and annoys the pig.

IÂ’m of the opinion that the only way to deal with idiots like this is with humor. I was thinking first of using the 3 Stooges in trying to categorize them; Larry (Longride), Curley (Buzgld) and Moe (captainwhoopass) but there are too many to pare it down to only Three Stooges. So I think a better analogy would be Snow White and the 7 dwarfs; reference to dwarfs is in regard to there posts and Snow White as a symbol of the American Motor Company they hold so long and dear; sheÂ’s been in a long slumber (no worth while engineering advances in the past 50 years). The 7 dwarfs long have suffered and they can be forgiven for there inability to see Snow White for what she really is but at least they have 18 years of record profit.



I had a hard time deciding which one best represents Dopey and Grumpy and none could really be called Happy but here my best stab at the list for the 7 Dwarfs;

Longride as Dopey, Seruzawa as Grumpy, Buzglyd as Sleepy, Electraglider_1997 as Bashful, Captainwhoopass as Doc, Sarnali as Happy and TatdNPrcd as Sneezy.

Another amazing testimony of cosumer stupidity. HD motorcycles are pieces of junk, just like mircro soft, vhs and the 8 track (which, sadly, my grandfather invented). Even the brits have better build quality.

I was hoping Gen X would can the entire HD thing. That SportBikes would come the fore. I think it may still happen. I don't believe we suffer from the nostalgia thing like boomers do. I think sportbike sales have been on the rise VS cruiser sales over the past 10 years. Boomers are leaving the peak buying years and Gen X has entered them, but we are roughly 2/3 their numbers which skews straight line stats.



Anyway, if HD does not build some quality sportbikes over the next 10 years their sales will probably tank.

VAN SUSTEREN: Are you suggesting that the Republican Party is now the big spenders?



MCCAIN: Yes. I am suggesting that the party that -- in the 1994 campaign, on the "Contract With America," one of the first items was a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. I say all that has disappeared, and I deeply regret it.

I'll run with the 7 dwarves over you and KPaul anyday.



Oh, and by the way, all of us "Harley guys" own sportbikes.
