No kidding! NASCAR, H-D and Miller Lite... Can't think of a better team of sponsors for the official Bubba-Bike! Hah hah. No wonder Harley can't build a decent sportbike/racer- ******** are in control of our nation's bike design.
Makes me wonder if MO looked at the pic/read the story before they posted it, or if they're looking for everyone to say "Harley's dumb because that's a Sportster.", thus starting the usual Harley vs. Everyone Flame War (Part 4).
Ah well, no one has mentioned how the V-max is faster than the sporty yet, so I suppose I should count my blessings.
The Fox - Love the V-max, love the Harley, but how about a frame already?
Actually, if anything makes sense in all of this, it is the choice of Harley as the correct bike. It's Miller Lite's promotion, their NASCAR driver is Rusty Wallace, he drives a Ford... isn't there some connection between Ford and Harley? Six-degrees of separation.
"Reliability?" Are the new 88 engines now straightened out from their new teething pains? Are the bearing and other problems corrected? If so...Straighten out the dealerships and I'd buy another Harley at MSRP.
Like other previous Harley owners, I have considered buying another...but questions about reliability of the new 88 engine stoped the sale. Plus the biggest factor for not buying another Harley are the dealerships in my area. Someday maybe, but not in the near future. I'm in the process of buy another "made in America" motorcycle, but it's not a Harley.
