would you go to a funeral for a biker that you did not kn...

A freind and I were talking about people who go to biker funerals even though they did not know the the person, just to ride their bikes and see other bikers. Some call it support, some call it respect. I call it disrespect and posing. What do you think. I love motorcycles, but when I die I do not want a motorcycle theme funeral. My life is more demensional tan just motorcycles but all will be welcome who knew mme.  (Jan 11, 2008 | post #1)

First Liquid-Cooled V-Twin Buell Rolls off Assembly Line

I agree g. mule. I am not a lawyer or a spoiled rich kid, but a hard working S O B and I love riding my old looking low tech 05 FLSTN. If the American auto industry does not learn to be throw back like hd they wont be around much longer. American cars are supposed to be big, powerfull, fat, rear wheel drive ass haulin machines, that do not, look, drive, sound or feel like toyotas or hondas  (Jan 11, 2008 | post #7)

Bombardier beats Harley to the Market

Guy, do you really think that harley cannot build an "me too croutch rocket". the reason they build nosalgic, old school or low tech bikes is because, for some people that is exactly the appeal. Look at the American car market, if you want a car that runs and drives like a honda or toyota ,you buy a honda or toyota, American cars are supposed to the big, rear wheel drive, lots of power, American motorcycles are supposed to be retro. If harley changed dramaticlly they would be in trouble just like GM and Ford. Such hatred of a paricular band is due to lack of understanding or immaturity.  (Jan 11, 2008 | post #10)

Rocker C

I had my hands and butt on a rocker c at the galveston ralley last november. The motor company had the 08 models on display, I closly examined the bike but did not ride it. I think the delay is with the seat, not just the passenger pillon, but with the rider seat. the damn thing does not latch. It lift up whith no button, no lever, no screw. So what? Imagine riding at speed and you see a bump or hole you cannot avoid, reaction is to lift yourself up on your pegs with your butt of the seat. With no seat latch or lock that seat is going to come up and meet you or you could miss the seat entirly on the way down. Hello battery.  (Jan 11, 2008 | post #14)
