    That's because he meant call centers and IT support. :wink:

    Some people like red cars, some like black cars. I:boink::kc10::spider:ts just not a good idea to put a profile on people what kind of ride your on, even if it maybe mostly true. You should give someone a chance to be a asshole before all ready calling them one!

    I've stopped to offer a Harley guy help with his broken down hog, I just don't want to be around the noisemakers while they're running, which isn't so hard 'cause they're usually going a lot slower :p

    Damn you guys jealous or just penis envy?? Love my vfr but its not a Harley and Im fine with that. Its amazing how the "overpriced POS machines" retain their value and stay in such demand.

    I would bet a VFR sounds better than a Harley with a nice slip-on, kind of funny too a 800 is faster by quite a bit than a 1200 Harley . Not too mention stop way faster and is lighter, gee I can't wait till spring time, so I can ride again and get out of that dam black srt-4-which I do happen to like more than any car I ever had.:gun3::banana:

    Harley Davidson (or Hardley Davidson), the most efficient way to turn fossil fuel into noise and vibrations.

    ^^^ without the obnoxious side effect of horsepower!

    1) Probably has at least a little to do with Harleys probably receive better keep, care, and see less harsh riding conditions due to their owners often having more expendable income and less of a desire to ride when conditions are not ideal.

    2) The brand, the very name, is a powerful market influence. There are deep seated cultural influences from the brand, and I'd wager no other brand in the world has been tattooed on more bodies or stickered on more vehicles (y'know, aside from factory branding).

    3) When you want to compare reliability you have to submit your samples to the same torture tests or else it isn't a fair comparison. Now, I don't have the numbers in front of me, but from I've seen Japanese vehicle manufacturers on the whole in the last ~20 years have outdone American ones in the longevity and reliability arenas. That doesn't mean Ford, Chevy, HD, what have you are all garbage, it just means they're not as good.

    But as for ragging on HD bikes, well, most of us here ride VFRs, other sport bikes, adventure bikes, anything but the generally slow, ear-splitting, two-wheel tanks. I've got nothing against a rider if I know nothing about him/her, and I've got an old friend who's always been into Harleys and American muscle, the fact that he likes HD has nothing to do with his character. Besides, he's always ribbed me for driving a Jap car even though he's probably never even had a car OR bike that was faster... but then, that's not why he rides either.

    Harleydoods compensate for penis envy with the weenie bite. HD once petitioned the US Government to make the weenie bite an Olympic event.

    I dont like the noise that can be heard 15miles off, sounds like continuous backfire. The "I can look down on you because I ride a HD" attitude ive run into is solved by asking if it hurts to ride 500 miles and only stop for gas and snacks. Most grumble and walk away. The few that stayed tried calling bullshit, but wouldnt make the trip from the pas manitoba to assiniboia saskatchewan (506 miles from my door to father in laws ). What I absolutely hate is the HD religious riders, worse than those door to door types at trying to convert ya.

    Digital envy? Really?

    Ever count the number of beautiful women are riding or on the back of a Harley? Now, compare that to any other brand (Honda for example). I REALLY don't think there is too much envy there. Here are two simple Google searches. Note the Honda VFR and the number of bikes with no female in the image at all.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=bea...aDMifyQGD84DYDQ&ved=0CCkQsAQ&biw=1209&bih=600

    https://www.google.com/search?q=bea...9PrL8rCyQGllYBg&ved=0CC8QsAQ&biw=1280&bih=605

    Just sayin.

    Guy

    You ever count the number of beautiful women who fall for the "bad boy" Harleydood only to age quickly and become bitter and ugly because they wasted their time trying to change a man who can't be changed? Now count the number of rich geeks who have the huge mansions and trophy wife.

    My Harley loving friend said I could eat it, I asked "How good are your chicken strips?"
