Thought the same when I first saw the vid. Didn't speak for me though I enjoy the product. Speaking of individuality, reminds of this classic image...



On an unrelated note, your avatar reminds.. Steve Martin as the dentist in Little Shop of Horrors is one of the great comedic movie scenes ever (Well, for me) and how about the brakes on his bike when landing a jump!

Sfarson... that picture almost made pee in my pants!

Arbik... I NOW have a sportster for sale... wanna trade?... I love truck bedliner... losens up the paint job!

I love how Harley promotes and lives by (involuntarily, I might add) the values of the 1800's and get's away with it... well, at least with the bankers, lawyers, wannabe tough guys and doctors they do...

I'm thinking of getting a Harley. Except I'll have mine Tig welded to the trailer so it doesnt wobble when moving.

...the "wobble" is part of the lifestyle you are purchasing! Makes for more excitement when riding fast... like a box of chocolates... you never know what the outcome is!

I love my sporty... just not the image associated with it... still ride it with pleasure though!

Riding around here in the corn fields, I see these kind of images all the time...except, Illinois is a no-helmet state...as for the video, I've never seen so many Hog Riders with skid lids on?

"Live by it"? Every year, during riding season, the local Abate Chapter puts on fund raisers for their members who've slammed their helmet-less noggin into the pavement or some other hard obstacle...the ones that live usually become vegetables or slightly better. I've been to Abate Meetings where they will flat tell you that wearing a helmet is hazardous to your health...they then go on to recite the reason why!!!???...go figure.

So glad I've learned to wear the right gear for the task at hand!

WHAT??? - Does anyone ever ask the question how hazardous NOT wearing a helmet was for those they organize fundraisers for??? That is just downright stupid! Hence, this kind of stupidity, ignorance and irresponsibility does not deserve to be supported... maybe they should hit up Ben Roethlisberger for a donation, the next time around!?!?

this is my hardley
there are many like it but this one is mine; nevermind there are 100,000 other fatblob-schmoebob-blojob-toejobs out there and I can't tell the difference after stops at the last 6 'biker taverns'..this one is MINE!
I cannot master my life as I cannot master my hardley
I cannot master my hardley as I cannot master my life...nor ride more than 20 minutes bdefore stopping fror another beer and another bonghit
I pledge to always ride in assless chaps
I pledge to always ride in a leather jacket that exposes my belly flab to the world
I pledge to only wear a WWI spiked chrome protest helmet; I must never be caught wearing any biker fashion accessory that actually haas a midocum of safety
I pledge to only ride after achiving a BAC of over .10
I am the staunch, unafraid defender of hardley's brilliant marketing strategy at the expense of my self-respect
I am a lemming, dressed in ceremonial black leather with a brand new club patch
I am a hardley rider; I am a moron
This I pledge
This I swear

Good question signit98...a riding buddy of mine put the following question to a couple of them one time. My buddy wears all the correct riding gear while riding his Guzzi. He was being criticized by them for his "fast" riding style since the Harley riders said they "don't go very fast"...went something like this:

1) Buddy says "As we stand here talking, fall straight backward onto your head, slamming it against the floor."

2) Harley riders..."What? Are you nuts? That'd hurt real bad".

3) Buddy says "So what's the difference if you slam your bare head into a curb at 30MPH".

4) Harley rider...blank stare then changes the subject.

It seems they are in complete denial of the facts at hand.
