Personally, I couldn't sue a dealership that had a fundraiser for my family.

It's probably not real world experience because everyone knows a Harley can't pass an 18 wheeler.

Yeah KP. LA is really red. Buncha neo cons trolling the the red carpets.



The neo cons all live near me in San Diego which is why it's the nicest part of the state with the lowest crime rate.



The rest of the state vacations here but we won't let 'em stay.

Motorcycle cops are not professional motorcycle riders but they are very skilled in general. Their classes are far more advanced than the advanced motorcycle safety courses taught by the MSF. They might not be experts on a racetrack but they know how to avoid trouble and they are even taught how to crash when forced into it; they practice it. Unfortunately it didn't help this poor fellow. I wouldn't go so far as to say that the glide is a bad cop bike, I have no clue, I've never ridden one and I'm not a cop. However, it shouldn't be discounted that the bike had a wobble that was dangerous to the rider. Not to say that Harley is at fault, clearly lots of folks ride glides without running into guard rails. But I'd be pretty pissed at that dealership if I was that guy's family. My neighborhood suzuki dealership 'serviced' my breaks and I was halfway home before I realized that the rear break line was broken and the whole assembly wasn't bolted on properly. Crap like that happens.

I agree a fundraiser probably would bring in several thousand dollars vs. a lawsuit would net possibly 100s of thousands.

I've never been a fan of fork mounting fairings so like my dad, the Road Glide does it for me.



J&L HD in Sioux Falls has a spanky new Street Rod discounted to $12.5K.

I like the Road Glide. I just have to get over the Jimmy Durante nose.



The Street Rod is a sweet ride. I just got done flogging one with fellow MoFOs.

"Lowest Crime Rate in California" means that you can sleep several nights a year without being awakened by gunfire.
