Take the article. Delete all Harley specific names. Replace with names form your favorite manufacturer.



See how hard it is to be a PR flack?

Harley Davidson's high testosterone marketing takes cliche moto adjectives to a new level with street-slammed black letters on a high contrast white background. Readers will immediately feel a sphincter tightening rush as they read wicked descriptions of silly-ass details like bullet-holes in chain (sorry, belt) guards. Drawing on over 100 years of marketing hype, HD raises the bar as they lower the seat.

Yawn... you woke me for this?



Gee, put an 18" rear onnit, bigger tank, normal manly man seat height, some really sweet alloy rims to go along with stainless spokes and one 'o them curly cue exhausts like Storz and soon you might have something that might be sorta interesting. Oh, and a chain drive please for the real nostalgia look as opposed to the current injection molded, faux nostalgia look that is the current du jour look of the day for the redundantly redundant amongst us.



But it'll sell like hotcakes at a Maple Syrup Convention to the usual lumpenprole out there - and no one EVER went broke underestimating the quality of their taste.



Too bad they'll all look like my dog scooting his rear across the carpet - Bad Dog!

No, you're thinking of Ricardo Mandlebaum in "Star Treks III, The Return of Khan." Fernando Lamas is the one Martin Short used to imitate on MadTV. His catchphrase was, "You look goooood!"

I think you will dig my 82 glide when you get your ass here. I figure you will be buying one once you ride this one.

Default Re: Screw Buz....

I have a guy with a 74 ironhead lined up in my sites as we speak. Kick start too, so it can punt Buz over the handlebars.

Alright, Kzuki.



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