Judging by the pissed off looks on most Harley rider's faces riding a Harley must not be fun at all. I wonder if they have any clue that I'm smiling from ear to ear as I go by?
I'm not knocking Harley, I'm glad they are still in business. I wish an American company would make a decent sportbike or standard that I could spend my money on. I just don't want to buy into the idea that you have to look and act like a Billy Bad Ass to fit in with the crowd.
It is funny you mention that -
Last summer, I took a drive to Columbia with my family, and one of my goals was to take pictures of as many riders as I could.
Dozens and dozens of riders, tons of them - and you know what, most were on Harleys, no surprise there.
And when I was reviewing the pictures, the only people smiling were -
NOT RIDING HARLEY'S!
Go figure, I've got the pictures somewhere, not sure what the deal is.
I guess it could be the payments that tick off the owners, or the lack of power, or the ride quality, not sure what it is, maybe they are just trying to be "cool", who knows.
Where are those pictures.....
