Default Back to motorcycles boys

Here's the latest Confederate being sold at Neiman Marcus. I like the Confederate style but is there a lamer place on earth than NM?

I predict this thread will degenerate into "no one can afford one because of Bush!" in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

Pushrod would have been a good name for a Vrod if it was made in the AMF days.

Actually, I got the nickname after a very quick (and expensive) lesson on how >not< to adjust the adjustable pushrods on my '88 FXR.

My question would be....why? Who would buy it, why would they buy it? Maybe it could be classified as some sort of art form? Bad art yes, but art form, maybe. Real men, and women don,t need or want that kind of over the top stuff. If ya do, you must have more money than brains, just my opinion, but.......

-Right, but NEVER underestimate the power of stupidity. Spend some time in Scottsdale, L.A., San Fran, New York, Miami, Boca, etc., and you will see some of the dumbest, gaudiest consumers with too much spending money. It will make you want to punch yourself in the face just to avoid looking directly into the stupidity.

If you want specific examples of people wanting to buy over priced crap you do not have to look any further than the custom chopper market and the custom car craze. Your 3 series Beemer does not need gold plated oversized spinning rims, four flat screen TVs, rare hand crafted leather seats, and jewel encrusted seal hyde steering wheel wrap, but for a time the idiots were lining up to get it done.
