Maybe the Highwayman could come by and fix it.



Take care,

Ok Dave, we'll all take care. After all, isn't taking care what it's all about?

The Chief is cool, but I think the company would have been better off sticking with proven S&S motors. The money they poured into the new power plus 100 would have been better spent on basic r+d, quality control, and marketing. A lower base price would also help. Excelsior made a similar blunder, nice bike (albeit a few quality issues) but they sunk all their resources into bricks and mortar and ran out of cash before they could effectively market the bike. A STRONG retail organization also goes a long way in this business. Unfortunately, Indian buckled to media criticism (another Harley clone) and market research and reinvented the V-Twin when there was no need to.

Oh Higway, my sweet Highway.



That may well be the best written, most humourous post, I've ever read on MO.



Thanks for the belly laugh.

I never get in to these things but...

My Doctor rides a Harley.

My Lawyer rides one as well.

Guy that runs my favorite bar? Some sort of H-D

Bunch of women I know ride Sporties.

I am a Firefighter, Harley made a special bike just for us

"Heroes" you know. Got to take your badge down to store to prove you qualify. Then you get to buy a red Road King for full price plus maybe a tad more because they are "scarce." Now the Motor Company did this on their own time. We didn't ask We get no price break. No donation to charity What's the point? I guess the next time my friendly wave is blown off by some "Real American Riders" I'll flip my V-star around and we will have a little chat. Maybe I can sell them some tickets to the Fireman's Ball while I am at it...) Lord I just wish these idiots would learn the most basic tenants of motorcycle lore: There are us, and there are the sleds. You got to keep your eye on the sleds and be there for your brother and sister rider regardless of what he or she happens to be riding.

That's the way it started; no reason to change it now.

IMO...TM

JB, maybe its just me, but when I read your article I picked up a "bored" feeling. I don't know, it just seemed kind of ho-hum compared to most of the stuff you write. Could be the content (hard to make that week old goulash go over very well after six days) but it seems that there may be something else bothering you. Man, if you need a hug, just let me know.



P.S. not a cruiser guy, but the Ruin is WAAYYY cooler!
