Somebody should tell Carol that if she really wants to do an in depth Harley story she should attend "the biggest motorcycle gathering in the United States, in Sturgis, N.D". VWW

a couple of quotes and some comments:



"Lowe has mastered the feel and the ear for the way a motorcycle should react and sound when it is being duplicated on a test run"



and how does he know the sound of a "good Harley" :)



and another:



"Lowe has been on motorcycles at high speed that have wobbled uncontrollably"



don't all Harley's do that?



the last one... without a comment..



"Harley people are happy"



quite an in depth article.

Great to see Walt enjoys his job so much.

I used to repair and test ride cop bikes.There was a mixed fleet of Honda,Suzuki ,Guzzi,Yamaha and Harley.It was great for about six months ,then the novelty wore off and it became just another boring job.Nothing can beat riding your own bike ,in your own time, and picking which ever destination takes your fancy.

I had a job "breaking in" Dynas and Heritage soft tails for a rental place in Compton a few years back. Had to put 1000 miles on one in a week.



Man, that was a tough job. Got kinda sticky every Thursday when you had only 300 miles on the ODO...



Lets see, how many times can one ride to Bakersfield and back in a day?



Then I got to break in BMW 850R's. Now that was nice...

sorry it took so long to reply to your "comment" ...



I've owned 15 bikes in my 30 yr MC career:

3 Harleys: '00 FLHT, 883R, '65 FLH

5 Hondas: RC51,750,650,PC800, Goldwing

3 Yamahas: R1, '71DS305

2 Triumphs: Bonnevilles.

1 Ducati: 999

1 Suzuki: GSXR 600



please, it's just an internet forum,

and it's just a comment on a poorly written article

with more fluff than substance.

Obfuscating a poorly designed motorcycle.
