Why do you want to ride a fifties bike. Isn't it enough to dress fifties style? Why not buy a crotch rocket and kill yourself much quicker.

One attraction of HD I rarely hear is the WIFE. I have two friend that sold sport bikes and bought Harleys because their wives would happily go to the beach or out to dinner on the back. There was no chance to get them to ride on the back of a sport bike.

If you can't own both, that is a tough choice. The HD may be the lesser of two evils.

You got that right. The public has disdane for motorcycles in general, but when it comes to Harleys they accept them as tolerable. Bashing Harley would be like spitting on the flag - it just wouldn't be right.

Imagine Harley revising sales downward by 3%. This could well be the end of Harley as we know it! Run for cover.

Note on Buell sales...



XB sales were up strongly in '04, Blast sales pretty much collapsed ... so they were selling more of the expensive bikes & fewer of the cheap ones.

fifties bike? not that i agree that my bike has 50s technology, but if the style is timeless I'm not complaining.



fifties style dress? my sportbike jacket and full face helmet began to chuckle



why my harley?

because i like it, i like torque, it has personality, it makes noise that i like, it gets good mileage, it's way cheaper than a sportbike when it comes to insurance (no i will not pay 2-3k for full coverage) and resale, it's smooth, it'll hit the twisties reasonably well, it is reliable and does not leak one drop of oil.

i never got that argument a 65mph crash on a honda is going to be about as bad as a 65mph crash on a harley...not like the harley offers better crash protection.

Women love the hogs because the vibes give them great orgasms; better than the hubby.
