Freudian slip or typo? You be the judge.

Au contraire. I'm sure there are tons of people who will go, as evidenced by the 100's of Harleys I see on the road week in and week out here in Illinois. It's got to be a 10 to 1 cruiser to other bike ratio where I ride. Besides, I like Harleys. They're pretty.



I do not care for press releases disguised as news articles, which is what this is. It offends my sensibilities. If it makes you feel any better, I dislike it more when it's a sales brochure disguised as a press release disguised as a news article, which is what Ducati and the big 4 tend to do.



If you can tell me the webcam is not lame, or that this is not a BS press release then perhaps I'll reconsider. I stand by my statement.

I just wish my title was "chief styling officer".



I mean.. I sure am glad that's not my title. Where are those assless chaps again? Perms all around on the house!

Would I buy a Harley? Yeah, sure.



Would I buy one right now? No. Financially it doesn't make any sense for me when there are so many choices out there and I like a wide variety of bikes. Why spend 10-20 grand on a bike when I can get so many others that are equally fun to ride that are cheaper. That isnÂ’t a knock on Harley, but more of a wise decision on more part to ride without going into an unnecessary debt.



But I have no problem with Harleys, their performance, or their pricing/marketing. It is a type of motorcycle meant for a certain type of riding.

80 foot tower? Pfft. That's a girl's tower. Gotta be at least 96.

The webcam is pretty lame. It only takes image captures every hour or so.



They could have put it together so it was more video like.



Would still be lame to watch, though.

Nice try at deflection but we all know that you have matching purple arm chaps and an EZ-Leaker hidden in the closet.
