Default whiny, sport bike sissies

I never said that the article had any bowing. But you know that the Harley riders get all butt hurt when we don't acknowledge Harley as the best.

"whiny, sport bike sissies"

Why are we sissies? Because we don't like your Harley? Because we choose a technologically and economically superior machine, we are whiners?

Or is it because we didn't give in and bow to your perceived superiority of Harley.

Aren't you the whiners because they made a separate and special class for Harleys?

HD definitely knows its market. And how to market to it. O I get it but I'm shocked it's not in any of the accounts I've read about this thing: where is the Genuine H-D Accessories 8-Second Kit™? Where's the Genuine Motorclothes Greasy Wife-Beater Pit Shirt?

This coulda been fun if Gene Thomason had brought out his real HD drag bike and let the kids take it for a spin. That one does 6s or 7s I forget but it is frightening just sitting still.

Most of the posts look like they're from the sportbike mafia with their panties in a wad over an article on a specialty bike that looks pretty damn fun to me.



For the record I own two sportbikes and one H-D. So I guess that makes me dubly superior.



Bow down!

Don't forget the H-D Destroyer Wash Bucket and Mitt!



Those top fuel H-Ds are scary muthas. I'd fear for my manhood just idling on one.

It is like Special Olympics drag racing. Did u see pic of the assembled journalists in Kev Duke's story? Looks like Hoyer is playing the Chief in One Flew over Cuckoo's Nest remake in leather. Gene can be Nurse Ratchett...

AMAProstar Hot Rod Cruiser record is held by Yamaha Warrior, 9.161 sec @ 145.30. Can the Hog beat it? will anybody try? Gulp...

Default wheelie bars

I'm very proud of your ownership.

Sure, this bike is a blast to ride but a pocket bike is fun too.

I think the whine you are hearing from sport riders is from the asinine price tag. A bigger, badder and better bike could be built for less.

Putting wheelie bars on any bike will decrease time. Not just because of the safety, its also the psychological factor knowing one can give more throttle and knowing one wont flip the bike. You could be a drag race king with a set of Official Harley Davidson Super XX Anti-Flip Traction Units. Only $699.

The funny thing is, fools will part with their money for a name.

Sigh... maybe Hoy will be the one man in the wilderness to point out that the emperor has no clothes, selling 9 sec. "drag bikes" to people for $31K. Hey does this bike come with a warranty? How many 9.9s will it do before, ah? hmmm...
