Default Re: History Made In Gainesville

Win on Sunday, sell on... Ooops, we don't actually make one of those things for sale now do we? Reminds me of that George Washington hatched I have. I've replaced the head a few times and the handle a couple dozen more, but sure is a nice piece of history. Now, if they actually raced a V-Rod...

Default inline 4 whine

I have been to a few NHRA racing events and have watched the V&H team in action.

They are great to watch and the V-Twin puts out a much more enjoyable sound than

the high pitch whine of the inline 4's. I think it's great they finally found their

way to the podium.

That's like NASCAR racers being called Chevy, Ford & Dodge. Real close to factory vehicles there, too

Default Re: Seems clear enough

*Thats why I'm Happy, I don't give a ***** what you ride, just what I ride*



Agreed! If you enjoy riding what you ride, then that should be good enough.



A whole lot of "I-have-this-type-of-bike-and-so-should-you" going on.



I ride what I want because I want to, not because others say I should or because they have one...

Default Re: For $200 billion and 500 lives you better be sure damn it.

Its nice to see that once again, kpaul, sarnali, and a few others have managed to turn a press release about motorcycles into a debate on politics, Iraq, Saddam, and even bin Laden.



Great job guys!



Now, can we get back to bashing each other on a purely motorcycle-related level?

OK, my bikes faster than yours, and I'm a better rider.

Default Re: News Flash: The year is 2010 and a Buell and a Ducati finally completes Daytona

And you, of course, utilize every ounce of performance from your Akropovic equiped, dyno-jet'd 2010.5 ZRX600 in your daily meanderings, just like your hero Eric Bostrom the 3rd.

Once again, my friend.... Outright track performance does not equal good street performance, racing-derived braking and suspension advances yes...outright horsepower no.

Repeat after me....."I can have fun on a bike that's not the fastest one I can buy"......."since I can't use even fifty percent of most sportbikes potential, I don't need to run out and buy the same bike my hero rides"........."I can ride a bike that I think is fun, irregardless of what every one else rides"

Don't worry, lad. You'll catch on someday.

Why do I feel compelled to throw in my 2 cents....?.,..



I am not a HD guy and never will be (careful, never is a long time). However, though I will poke fun at the HD crowd now and again, I am ever mindful that they have been the number 2 company in sales for a while. There are a lot of people that love them. And for a few different reasons. I can sure understand the V-Twin sound and soul thing. And if they are just victims of the marketing, well I have been known to want to wear a number of Yamaha and Vmax things too. And I don't worry whether I can beat a Harley anywhere. Maybe that comes from having a Max though.



Enjoy your ride, and enjoy that others like to ride. I am glad there is a selection of bikes and styles to keep it interesting.



The rules should be fair and everyone, just get along!



Congrats to the Screamin Eagle/ Vance & Hines team for all their hard work. I am sure it took a lot of talent to pull that off.

Default Harley

Harley bikes are great.

Americans designed the Harley.

The Vance and Hines know when they have a winner.

Arm chaps, finger chaps, ear chaps, handle bar tassles and glove fringe.

Vtwins are timeless engines. Inline 4's are more costly to maintain and that's why dealers love them.

Harley's are a joy to own and ride, and their riders truly blessed.

God bless Harley Davidson and their owner/riders.



Think that covers it all, did I miss anything?

Default Japanese love Harleys

Harleys (believe it or not) out sell the Japs in Japan. I'm talking about big bikes. They pay a fortune for them because they are such a status symbol there. Explain that away.
