Blinded by the light,

Held up like a loofah by the foreman of the night.



Blinded by the light,

Ripped up like a douche, you're gonna throw away the night.



Blinded by the light,

Remmed up like a docent by the humble of the might.

Yamaha has been doing this for years, they have had two seperate additions of "Midnight" bikes. One recently and one back in the eighties

"It was "You look marvelous!" and Billy Crystal did the impersonation on SNL."



No, Billy Chrystal was famous for his slapstick impersonation of the late President Harold Ford. Later he went on to play a transgendered lesbian in the controversial 1970's sitcom Soap Suds.

Midnight bikes still had glossy paint and chrome.



These are invoking more of the "gangster" look with the flat paint. They should have used red rims and white wall tires though.



Mix in some Von Dutch pinstripes and you're there.

Tractor motor! I say to you that I used to say the same thing as my lemming neighbors (as in middle-aged and older) buy these H-D's and then put on racket-ehancing pipes to show their patriotism. I used to say that until I started watching antique and restored tractor shows on the RFD channel. I will never degrade these gems of rural America again. Properly restored and/or maintained these old workhorses emit a profoundly beautiful resonance.

I liked Buells so much - I bought the Company!



The Buell Microscreen - shaves as close a Japanese Supersport, or we'll sell you a Race Kit!
