Never seen so many Middle Aged, midlife crisis, big gut guys gathered in one place. I have to agree with the poster above please stop with the H-D propaganda. Having to put up with longrides H-D biased material is bad enough. Don't let MO turn in HO (Harley Online). This stuff is nauseating.
You guys are right, an American motorcycle company that's been in business for 100 years has no business on a motorcycle website. Let's have another review of some warmed-over Duc, please. Or maybe even a Duc-Aprillia comparo. Or better yet, a Duc-Aprillia-Laverda love-fest.
Sooo many haters - Sooo little time.
P.S. So KPC, You're selling your bike when you hit middle age then?
Wonder if they remembered to mention that their first engine was a copy of a frenchie machine?
I bought a Fattie a year ago and receive by post a nauseating load on the heritage-legend BS theme. You can't believe some of the stomach turning examples of hyper tastless merchandise floating around this topic.
OK so what if 90% of HD riders seem to be 9 to 5 clerks and insurance salesmen in their 50's with a serious weight concern. This is not a problem for me. What is, is the bad boy image with black leathers and bandana etc. Thats sooo phoney.
Nice photo coverage of the Street Rod Round-Up. Nice hooters on the geezer chick. Who let the air out of the other set? Seriously, some bike stuff would be nice and we really have done the Harley stuff to death. Move on.
It's interesting to me how this online community of opinionated FREAKS has become such a part of my life but I've found myself thinking of you, Buz, and of all people, Sean (???) quite often since the fire storm started. I knew you guys were further north so I'm really happy to hear you are indeed safe from the storm. I hope it stays that way.
I wish I could make as generous a donation as you've done but about all I can afford right now is a fraction of that and prayers for rain and a shift in the wind.
Here's hoping all the MOrons affected directly or indirectly by this fire storm are safe and whole.
Indeed! Our Sunday ride was in hot weather, for this time of year here in Sacto, in the low '90s. By Wednesday the temperature had plummeted. Yesterday the high was in the '60s, today we had light rain, low's in the '30s and the first snow in the Sierra's. Don't mess with MOther Nature!
Glad to hear you OK. By the way Warren Buffet (the rich guy, Arnolds economic advisor, friend of Bill Gates) is unloading dollars due to George Ws wooping budget deficits. The 7.2 % is the just a blip wait till those deficits kick in remember the bad old days inflation, high interest rates. Of course SDSU is home of the Laffer curve right (supply sider advisor to Reagan) . Deficits are really bad for the economy cause the government crowds out the private sector for investment. Go back to a real school Buz
