Somebody should tell Carol that if she really wants to do an in depth Harley story she should attend "the biggest motorcycle gathering in the United States, in Sturgis, N.D". VWW

a couple of quotes and some comments:



"Lowe has mastered the feel and the ear for the way a motorcycle should react and sound when it is being duplicated on a test run"



and how does he know the sound of a "good Harley"



and another:



"Lowe has been on motorcycles at high speed that have wobbled uncontrollably"



don't all Harley's do that?



the last one... without a comment..



"Harley people are happy"



quite an in depth article.

That is, hands down, one of the funniest things I've seen posted in a long time!

Great to see Walt enjoys his job so much.

I used to repair and test ride cop bikes.There was a mixed fleet of Honda,Suzuki ,Guzzi,Yamaha and Harley.It was great for about six months ,then the novelty wore off and it became just another boring job.Nothing can beat riding your own bike ,in your own time, and picking which ever destination takes your fancy.

I wonder exactly how much he gets paid? That is a pretty cool job though. Probably the only other job that would be cooler is being a porn star.
