And whats really funny is the women who think that Harley is fashionable...like on saturday night they put on their Prada/Gucci/Dolce Gabana...whatever, then on on Sunday afternoon they put on their HD gear!
qman, the conversations between H-D owners, cultist H-D riders is interesting. Many of them talk H-D technology as if they knew what was inside their engine (most don't have a clue) with Screamin' Eagle this and Stage 4 kit that...

I believe your right about the Lemming thing and being socially acceptable, macho, etc. But, the tattoos are painful, expensive and difficult to remove. I'll just stick to my BMW thing...no tattoos required!
