I've ridden all kinds of bikes.

But when I did a safety on a restored '58 Hog, I test drove it, then told the owner, "Now I understand."

There's nothing like a Harley.

OK.

I do notice that when a new big bike comes out, or somebody builds a custom, it certainly doesn't look Japanese or European.

It looks like the bike everyone wants. Even if it is old tech.

P.S. Just to continue the joke a bit. Do you know why Harley riders ride in front of the Hondas??

Because they appreciate somebody picking up the parts that fall off!!!

...as long as it is sitting still.
They show well, you know the ole' saying,"if it don't go...chrome it!"
And, not everybody....
A true customs seldom has any HD parts on it anyway...they end up using RevTech, S&S, Ultima or a Patrick, with a Baker 6 speed and a sh*t load of Performance Machine or hand made billet parts.
Sorry!

I raced a Harley today and after some really hard riding I managed
to PASS the guy. I was riding on one of those really, really
twisting sections of mountain road with no straight sections to
speak of and where most of the bends have warning signs that
say "MAX SPEED 50 KPH".

I knew if I was going to pass one of those monsters with those
big-cubic-inch motors, it would have to be a place like this where
handling and rider skill are more important than horsepower alone.

I saw the guy up ahead as I exited one of the turns and knew I could
catch him, but it wouldn't be easy. I concentrated on my braking and
cornering. Three corners later, I was on his mudguard. Catching him
was one thing; passing him would prove to be another.

Two corners later, I pulled up next to him as we sailed down the
mountain. I think he was shocked to see me next to him, as I nearly
got by him before he could recover. Next corner, same thing. I'd
manage to pull up next to him as we started to enter the corners but
when we came out he'd get on the throttle and out-power me. His
horsepower was almost too much to overcome, but this only made me
more determined than ever.

My only hope was to out-brake him. I held off squeezing the lever
until the last instant. I kept my nerve while he lost his. In an
instant I was by him. Corner after corner, I could hear the roar of
his engine as he struggled to keep up. Three more miles to go before
the road straightens out and he would pass me for good.

But now I was in the lead and he would no longer hold me back. I
stretched out my lead and by the time we reached the bottom of the
canyon, he was more than a full corner behind. I could no longer see
him in my rear-view mirror.

Once the road did straighten out, it seemed like it took miles
before he passed me, but it was probably just a few hundred yards. I
was no match for that kind of horsepower, but it was done. In the
tightest section of road, where bravery and skill count for more
than horsepower and deep pockets, I had passed him. Though it was
not easy, I had won the race to the bottom of the mountain and I had
preserved the proud tradition of one of the best bits of Brit iron.

I will always remember that moment. I don't think I've ever pedaled
so hard in my life. And, some of the credit must go to Raleigh
cycles, as well. They really make a great bicycle...

...you sayin Raleighs ain't fast?
Ya, why would a Hardly rider care if a bicycle passed them?
It must have happened before...good point!

That's just like a kid in a Neon blowing off a Corvette.

Ever see a Corvette speeding?? I never have. No point to it.

Everybody would like to own a hog once in their lives.

Ever see a Corvette speeding?

Yup, plenty, mostly in my mirror!
Any young owner would, no question.
It's just, not many young guys own them.
And you are wrong about everybody...although I do like pork!

SB, if it doesn't matter why do two sit in my shop not run now for three years. The 94 has a grand total of 4734 miles. They are a pig to ride and I would not wish a Harly on my worst enemy. Now ride a BMW or even a big Honda and you can go for miles in solid comfort AND style.

........buy a Beemer,.................hehehehehehehe ya, right. I am self employed, a Beemer, hehehehehe. Even if I could sell the boat anchors and make a bit of profit I STILL wouldn't be able to buy a Beemer. Maybe next time around I will be rich instead of good lookin'.

One Harley gone, thanks for the verbal "push". Perhaps, maybe, might, could, ah, we will see if a Beemer or Honda could be in the future.

My most used thing on my golf bag is a McCullough mini mac 10. Golf to me is a quiet walk in the bush.
