Why would you hold it against him? He has great job security selling a product that a lot of people want to buy.

In an earlier time one might hold that against him for taking advantage of the ignorant and misled. Now though, I'll freely say that HD is selling a high-quality product, and one of these days maybe I'll buy one.

My Uncle's Chiropracter rode his new Harley through the gap and it fouled a plug. He enjoyed the taste of a Tab cola and said he spotted a brand new AMC GremlinX rip by, squealing the polyglas tires, as he waited for a friend to meet him at the diner with a plug.

All Harley are crap.

Lighten up Francis, I was teasing him, apparently you missed the smiley and the lol.

Someday, I want to add an ultra glide to the stable, I just don't have time to ride enough miles to justify one right now.
In all seriousness, the one I rented in Vegas was great, very comfortable smooth (in a rumbley sort of way) when my youngest graduates high school, I may have to visit Dakez to make a purchase.

You are correct NCS... Honda V65 Magna circa 1983-1986. I had one too but without the lights. Unless he somehow upgraded the stator the OEM wouldn't power all dem lights.

I had an 83 and 84. Here's a picture of my 83'

I dig that. Could do a voting bracket shortly after Christmas or something.

^^^^^ I met that guy a few years ago in Oklahoma City, at a gas station. He had been to Sturgis and he wanted to know where the bikers liked to hang out in OKC. He is really quite a free-spirited character.
