Call it what you like, but it's still old technology. HD needs to start using parts from it's newly aquired MV Agusta parts bin.

Harley Owners=Have shi*ty boring jobs, looser lifes through the week, live in cookie cutter houses,etc... then, on weekends or during rallies, they "act" like they are REAL bikers by putting on the gear,hitting biker bars, stripper clubs, etc...They act like a bunch of school boys who never saw tits or booty before.Get drunk off cheap beer ,act retarded and try hard as hell to look and sound as intimidating as possible. Then, come Monday morning, its back to their looser life again. How pathetic. No thanks, but I'll stick to my BMW. Its always been said,"You cant buy taste."

Wow, sounds like we got ourselves a hot-shot art dealer in a hand made cargo container swank-ass hut. I'm sure he's too hot-assed to wave his metrosexual manicured hand at anyone not on a Bimota. Good luck with making friends Mister Poindexter Warhol.

Anyone who starts off in a big bash is either a troll, or jealous. Have pride in your ride whatever you ride. Gwt over what other's ride.

Wellll, after only 35 years of riding H-D's all I can say is, "If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand."

Also, as you said, "you can't buy taste", well you can't pretend to have it either. People with taste have the decency not to be judgmental on any front. Albeit, the BMW is a good, sound machine- just sorry you couldn't fit in with the old-timers with dignity and taste.
