Default The Harley Creed

The Harley creed is all about a tough breed.



Men who will drop anything to saddle up and thunder off to distant locales to back up one of the brethren. Men who will endure a gritty and arduous journey through mountain passes, badlands canyons and storms and fire to reach a faraway destination where few dare to tread and fewer still survive. Men who cast in iron, chrome and leather the real meaning of genuine masculinity in this pivotal era in history so gentler generations of the future might understand what it was really all about.



Men who take a stand, draw a line in the sand and speak only to those who understand.



Men who have the patriotism and integrity to denounce the travesty of Asian atrocity cycles on American soil.



These are Harley-Davidson men. Singularly and together they define and defend the core truths of authentic American motorcycling. Reaching deep into the heritage and traditions of America they remain fiercely loyal to those everlasting values that made this country great. TheyÂ’re stout and hearty men who carry out their mission and task with steely nerves, masterful roadcraft and fearless confrontation. Rough and tumble men who have the brawny courage to muscle massive bikes, distant places and the dreams of all Americans into their own image.



YouÂ’re not called upon to be of the rarefied caliber to join these men. But youÂ’re either behind them, or youÂ’re in their way.



Better hope youÂ’re not in their way.

Is it me or does the front of this bike look like a speed triple?

Okay guys, you've redeemed yourselves somewhat with this story.

In other news: my 97 CBR1100XX was stolen September 1st, and I unfortunately did not have comprehensive coverage on it. I was reading the stuff you guys had on the BMW R1150R, and it looks like a mechanical masterpiece. Is it possible to get them at a reduced price though? It seems that a Honda 919 with $2000 worth of upgrades would be a superior machine. I have about 6 months until I have the money for another bike, so there is plenty of time to make my decision.

Default Brand Loyalty -

Every manufacturer loves cosumers who identify with their brand. Buyers love to be validated by like minded people who confirm their , "oh so intelligent choice".



But I gotta say, in motorcyling (in my experiance) there are three groups that give new meaning to the word myopic ~ BMW riders, Ducati riders, and Harley riders!



Not that I don't like some of the offerings here, it's just that - jeez, get a grip! It's a big world with a lotta nice bikes!



I was in a 'Guzzi dealership recently, and some guy went apoplectic when I told him Ohlin suspension was owned outright by Yamaha! Believe me I'm a patriot, but the brakes on your Harley are made by Nissin in Nagano, Japan!

Outstanding scoop MO! I want one in black with a Nallin Racing (http://www.nalinracing.com) 1050cc stge 2 kit and 100+ RWHP. Ain't a bike on the road that will touch it through the fun stuff.



As to teh bike looking like a speed dribble, naw, the speed drible has big ole frog eye lights. The XB9S has lights half the diameter. They look mean, not goofy.



The tail section could use some creative work though. Too plain, and reminds me of the Blast tail section.
