The reason most are considered HD clones isn't because Harley was one of the first makers. It's because after WW2 HD (along with other US companies @ the behest of our Gov) sent tool & die equipment to Japan, most notably. Indian had all but filed bankruptcy by this point.

That's how Honda and, eventually, the other Asian makers were able to start making Harley-style cruisers. Ever since, HD has set the precedent for style while Asia follows willingly.

I don't agree with someone calling British, German or Italian bikes clones because their roots typically pre-date that war.

Also, I would've rather bought a new Vic Vegas 8-Ball (it cost the same as my used FXSTC) but the dealer network, aftermarket & area mechanics didn't support Victory. When it came down to buying a US maker bike; HD was a safer choice.
Drunk and near water is bad for a LOT of things!

So I thought it would be fun if we all went around and said our name and a little something about ourselves. I'll start...

Wrap them in bacon and put them in a giant oven at 350 for a half an hour. That'll keep them warm...

Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion.

Its.......A FACT!
