I saw a video on here of a couple of Harley riders doing some really stupid reckless shit. Wheelies, cookies, no helmets, smashing whiskey bottles. Anyone have a link to it.

There was also another one with a guy on a piece of junk bike wearing a cape and riding it like he was a superstar. I think it was from Norway maybe. Real descriptive I know...

Another way to think of it is that H-D is exporting money from India and to the U.S.

This ^^^

And what is wrong with exporting freedom to those in India?
So yeah. Been to India, rode motorcycles all over. They're pretty damn free already, being the worlds largest single democracy and motorcycle market. So democratic in fact that their "federal government" actually allowed one of their states to vote and become communist on it's own accord. Think about that one for a minute. Heavy expensive low tech fashion statement bikes have no place there apart from playthings for the upper class.

The purpose of this thread is entertaining videos, so I'll keep this short and not mention it again. And dudes: I'm not out to get you or trying to enrage anybody. Just some interesting facts I've picked up recently about the new Harley's, and given their refusal to discuss anything candidly, it seems pretty likely that the bikes are manufactured in India and assembled in the U.S.:

1. Harley showed dealers a production line for the Revolution X engine in Kansas City. Where do the parts for that production line originate?
2. Where are the Street 750 and 500 frames made? If they are being simultaneously produced in both India and America, how does that add up financially?
3. Does the low price of the new models reflect India’s cheaper labor rates?
4. Can Harley really build the same bike at the same cost in America as it can in India?
5. How does Harley predict Sportster sales will be impacted by the Street’s release? Why buy a more expensive Sportster over a more affordable Street 750?
6. Why, from a cost perspective, would Harley duplicate the manufacturing process on two different continents?

Here's the rest of the article: http://rideapart.com/2013/11/where-a...-750-500-made/

Take it here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=932184

I fully expect Sportster sales to remain about the same as they are now.

I saw the first, but it wasn't memorable enough for me to save.

The second is "Tigerman". Its one of my all time favorites.
