dont get me wrong ,but the trouble with harleys is that the people that are buying them latley are the same people that have the big house ,room for 10 ponies,the porshe..blah blah blah. i personally like the v-twin but so far everyone ive met with one is either a 50+ born again with matching his n hers everything or a complete wanker thats a patch club wanabee.at the end of the day its a machine ,it gets you from a-b,it doesn't have the bad ass biker image(hello uk not usa..) so why cant the maj-minoroty just enjoy it 30 grand ...3 grand shouldnt matter....
i may be talkin **** ,but thats just my opinion........

So.. sorry but if 30k or 3 k does not matter to you... why is it a problem to you if someone who has worked for and earned the cash to buy a Porsche, a big mansion etc.etc. and a 30 k bike does so?

Why does that make anyone who has a few bob, less of a worthy person than the person who struggles to fill their bike up with fuel?

They may have struggled to do that at one time as well..

so by your reckoning then all harley riders are tossers or wankers...

My 15 year old son has been bitching about how hard his weekly paper round is - It makes him 70 a month, which I've worked out is enough to pay for a new 883 Sportster on one of those weird finance deals Harley offer.

I've told him that if he doesn't knuckle down and stop bitching, I'll take over the bloody paper round and buy myself a Harley with it.


How cool would that be? "I bought a Sportster with a paper round"

correct me if im wrong,but,i think that the people he's on about are the people that buy harley's as a fashion fashion accessory ?
I dont have a problem with them myself,each to their own,but it does mean that because of these R.U.B ?,(if i was rich,had a big house,id still ride) types,that you can get some cracking deals on VERY low mileage harleys,allready fitted with the stage 1 etc,there's nobheads on all kinds of bikes,everyone's a wannabe something or other at some point.

Here, Here. We bought brand new Harleys but we're not loaded by any means, neither do we live in a big house. But instead of spending money other things, we chose to buy Harleys. I hate being stereotyped, cos I'm me and I'm individual and so is everyone else.

This is just the image that Harley marketing want to portray and everyone falls for it.

Oh and another thing while I'm on me soap box, most of the fashion accessory with big house, Porsche and room for a pony or two types, never ride their bikes. They just get the staff to polish em now and again. Thats why there are so many low mileage Harleys for sale second hand.

I've met quite a few real dedicated bikers, who have had accidents and bought Harleys with the compo, because they can no longer get onto a sports bike. So please stop categorising us, everyone has a different story to sell.

We sold our ocean going yacht to buy ours

Default bollox, done it rong agen!

I bought a guzzi! & that'll just have to get me thru' me mid life crisis.

i reckon Hacky has a point: husband (of a woman i work with) has a dali havidson blingster, i tek the piss and ask 'has it moved recently?'
& she ses: 'yes the builders rolled it out of the way when they did the garage extension-the cheeky bastid even sat on it!"

now thats the type in Hacky's scope i reckons........

been idly watching this one:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=150225848148


its been relisted and had a buy it now of 2,500 on it and only got one bid first time round.

Been done with a one day listing, so someone needs to shift it sharpish methinks.

the job done on it isn't to my taste, and all my spare cash is allocated, but i thought I'd bring it to you gentlemen and ladies attention, cos if its not a bargain, it certainly looks cheap enough...

Not so much a raw nerve mate..
but just kinda getting sick of people that slag off summat cos its the "In" thing to do.. kinda.. " C'mon lads whats fashionable today.."
fecking sheep..
Why not try and think for yourself for a change..
Do you think we haven't all heard this crap before? Over and Over and Over again...
You don't see folk coming on here slagging off Yamaha or Honda riders do you? so what makes you think its ok to slag off folks you have never met and know nothing about?
Change the fecking record..

A ten-year-old boy was walking down the street when a big man on a black motorcycle pulls up behind him and asks, "Hey kid, wanna go for a ride?"
"No!", said the boy, and he kept on walking.

The motorcyclist pulls up to him again and says,

"Hey kid, I'll give you $10 if you hop on the back.
"NO!" said the boy and proceeded down the street a little quicker.

The motorcyclist pulls up to the boy again and says, "OK kid, I'll give you $20 and a BIG bag of candy if you hop on the back for a ride."
At this point the boy turns around to him and screams angrily,

"Look Dad, YOU bought the Harley, so you ride it!"

lifes to short........

The Inventor and God
The inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven.

At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur, "Since your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is that you can hang out in Heaven with anyone you want."

Arthur thought about it for a minute and then said, "I want to hang out with God."
St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room, and introduced him to God. God recognized Arthur and commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented motorcycles, eh?!

Arthur said, "Yeah, that's me..."
God commented, "Well, what's the big deal in inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution, and can't run without a road?!"
Arthur was apparently embarrassed, but finally spoke.

"Excuse me, but aren't you the inventor of woman???" God said, "Ah, yes."
"Well," said Arthur, "Professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention:
1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusion
2. It chatters constantly at high speeds
3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much
4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust
5. And the maintenance costs are outrageous!"
"Hmmmm, you have some good points there..." replied God.

"It may be true that my invention is flawed, but according to my calculations,
more men are riding my invention than yours!"

But you didnt mention these in your original post did you. You just went straight in for Harley owners mate and that just gets everyone's back up.

I've seen the accountant and bank manager sorts go out and buy a shiney big feck off Jap bike complete with colour coded leather all in one baby grow and squeaky boots and hump on his back. The next thing you hear they've gone and hit the tarmac cos they been showing off on a machine they cant handle.

There are stories with every type of bike.

You can say what you want about Harleys or Harley owners, its water off a ducks back. I get the pi$$ taken out of me a lot about my bike, but I just laugh it all off. It just getting a bit boring now to be honest. I'm dedicated to my bike and no one will ever change that, no matter how much they insult the Harley name.
