400,000 bikes! That really is impressive. Great take on the market and the HD brand.

Thanks.



I guess Ford could take a lesson from Harley after slipping to third behind Toyota.

Default Nice.

I like your new technique Buzz. Not just "first post" but "first post to ***** you off" I bet you can't get 3 days in a row.

Default The $623,896 Question

This doesn't just apply to Harley's CEO but other as well. Is this guys opinion and time really worth that much compared to the other guy's? (12X someone who is making $50,000).

Default "Why are Harleys louder....?"

What a GREAT way to be politicaly correct about saying "We build em so specs, but some of the customers are a$$#oles!"



With that said, I'm a future a$$#ole. I rode my Lightning past a group of small children and not one of them started to cry and run away......



Definetely not loud enough......

Is there something new in this article that hasn't been said dozens of times in other articles (both here and elsewhere) over the past several years? If so, I can't find it.



You must be following Stephen Colbert's maxim that good journalism is a well-rewritten press release (or even easier, a link to a story somebody else wrote).



That leaves more time to test yet another crotch rocket.

That's a bad thing?



I suppose we could test harleys. But, what's to test? They make lot's of noise and haul drunken fat people around in slow wobbling formation. That pretty much cover them?



I know, we could do a report on riding from bar to bar and then falling into a huge ditch after a botched pass of an RV?

Yes.



If you were responsible for making multi-billion dollar decisions, you'd want to be paid too.

Just when you get close to GPTB nirvana, you have to crack wise.



Back to the end of the line!



Or did we already let you in?

Harleys haul fat drunks from bar to bar. Sportbikes haul half-wits from crash site to impound lot.



Different strokes I guess.
