I like your Harley CB, and I know you like it, and I think Harleys are great bikes. But I don't want one, I've gone through the stages of wanting a Vincent, a Indian, a Hesketh, but I've always been happy with the bike I owned at the time, Ive never disliked any bike I owned and in all the years, strangely enough, Ive never ridden a bike that I haven't owned...(apart from bringing my sons Chinese scooter home from the bike shop)...I don't think many people really hate Harleys! I think when you think of American bikes you think of Harleys, but if you think of Jap bikes there are too many names to single one out as great, and many more types to choose from. Harleys have been around for longer than I have and a lot longer than Jap bikes and a lot of us have a low opinion of Americans, (how many people think George Bush is great) so we take the piss out of Harleys..and for the life of me I can't think of a French bike, but if there is one I hate it... John

Just looked it up..there are hundreds of them..and I hate them all...

Way to go!

Don't drop in here much these days but though I'd just add my 10 cents worth...

Don't matter what you ride...some fecker ain't gonna like it...does it matter? Does it f*ck!

You like it...s'all that matters...

After 30+ years of owning/riding, and probably as long slagging HDs off...lol I recently got my first and yep, it's a Sportster 1200 conversion (goes like stink!) Oh yeah, and despite buying it outright, I ain't one of the creaky leather brigade and I ain't got money comin out me ears!

at the end of the day, I ride to please me, not anyone else...

Would this be an ideal time to remind you all that my 1200 Sportster Sport is up for grabs? Y plate, 3500 miles, ducati running gear, drag bars, Supatrap 2 into 1 exhaust, twin spark, standard but custom painted tank, single seat, bellmouth and choice of two other air filters, sports bag full of other bits. (Caribbean hideaway forces sale).
Enquiries etc via private msg. Cant post pics here (not my computor), but there are others on previous post in classified.
Price now negotiable. Have managed to get by.
Ta.
