I guess it happens so infrequent that I jump up and down

Default No body does it like Harley

Yep I sure like that Harley Valkyrie or how about that Harley Warrior and the Harley V-Max and Magna. Harley is so leading age too. No nobody does it like Harley.

No I'm a Republican. But I do wish we would look at other ways to get our fuel.

Default Re: The Highway Man Rides to Sturgis

I bet you could find a pretty interesting route through Tucson and up through the mountains of eastern Arizona to the 4 Corners area.



I just moved to far NorCal from Tucson a few months ago, and am having regrets -- to effin cold to ride but not enough snow to ski. Worst possible combination



Of course, next Summer when it is 80 here and 117 in Tucson, I'll feel different.



Cheers

Bob

You can see it doesn't take much to get the Hatfields (Harley Boys) and McCoys (everyone else) going. I think your question was answered by the author of this article best. "when I buy a Harley (or my EH) I know I can make it be what I want it to be, run like I want it to run, and not lose it's value." see

As for why Harley riders tend to dislike Japanese imitations I think most of the Harley guys here at MO are the educated and experienced variety (longride, etc...) so they probably don't care about Japanese imitations. The Posers at the HD dealerships can probably give you an answer which will run along the same lines as the Highwayman.

We will when the current supply runs out or becomes too expensive to produce.

No, its not wrong, you do what you have to, as do I. You may be a very good businessman, and by the sounds of it you are. The difference is that you are living up to your responsibilty as a singular owner. (I'm making the assumption that your company isn't public yet.) But when you have a company that has MANY owners, its more about 'make the holders happy' than anything else. If your business plan will also account for the well being of your employees (as HD does), even better. But you and I both know that when a business reaches the magnitude that HD has some of the choices made by the company are not in the best intrest of the consumer, or employee, or possibly both, but oftentimes is the required path to success.

okay, you are right.




I by no means want to imply that one is better than the other. My apologies.
