Why do you guys love Harley's so much? I rode a couple the other day. I also tried a Vrod. None of them impressed me as far as performance.
The Harley's are the best looking bike but certainly years behind the other makes in true ride performance.

I opened the throttle on the Vrod, I assume this is Harley's fastest bike. It had some torque but no real speed.

I think if some of you guys ever tried a Japanese performance bike or sport touring it would open a world of performance and handling you have never known.

Harley Davidson could use their bikes to power farm equipment. That 1200 V twin would be perfect for riding mowers and backup generators.

If you don't like Harleys don't buy one. Pretty simple.

I personally ride them for the simplicity...air cooled over head valve engine....doesn't get simpler than that...and the fact they are an American company doesn't hurt

there is a guy that brings a black night train down to buddy's sometimes. I don't know what he has done to the engine in that thing but it really shakes the ground.
