It's obvious you conquered the fear of being wrong a long time ago.

I just called Harley's customer service number (414-343-4056) and they had no idea what I was talking about. So I had the very polite customer service lady go to MO and look for herself. She agreed that the XR is a hot looking bike.



I told her that I've never owned a Harley but I'd put my name down to buy one right now if they'll market it here in the U.S.A. Give 'em a call!

"600cc sportbikers falling down more is a fallacy."



No it ain't.



"Example: UK riders, especially in the wet, make it look easy, while Italians ride narrow, bumpy roads like they're well-paved freeways."



Nothing like a little ethnic generalization, eh? How bout dem Black riders and dem Mezzicans? How do dem boys ride? Dope.

Default HD cribs Storz cribbing HD

Spotted the HD proto on "Daily" yesterday pm. Love the "miler" look. Could this be the start of a 'Murrican version of the Adventure Tourer movement?



One can wish, I suppose.

Default First time huh?

As Mark Cuban said on MSNBC "You only have to be right or succeed once "



As a marketing guy you should know that already. How is the AARP convention. First time in Hawaii, right? Cause you are staying on Oahu Most folks go to the other islands after the first tie. I like the big island myself. [b]When on the big island, of course I have pay my respects to my ancestor Captain James Cook.. [i] I am sure I get my keen sense of direction, my love of cartography , and desire for knowledge from the great Captain

Of course you are correct, SIR! (say in yer best Ed McMahon voice)



I was thinking about an adventure tourer that evoked memories of Brelsford Bro, Cal, Nickle Bones, etc..more a mid-American, flyover country feel.



Still the Uly is the coolest thing since sliced bread which is the coolest thing since itself.
