Harley Davidson

I do not own a bike, do not care to, but I am curious as to why Harley Davidson has such a mystical following?
I am guessing it has more to do with marketing and opinion than empirical evidence, but I am ignorant. Please teach me the intricacies of the company that is known as Harley Davidson.

Then there is being out on a ride in twilight and all the stars over head as you zip through the curves in the mountain discovering hidden meadows full of flowers and animals.

Or just plain blast through 130 mph on a Desert Highway things flashing by and you see the mountains slowly growing in the distance as you race up to them.

Some people come alive when on the edge (i fit in here) and like going flat out in a Canyon, though I'd rather a Gixer or an RR to do it on. Of course a Porsche would be fun too...

Harley's are

way over priced in my opinion. Lew is right, when AMF was making them, they were the 'Hi-point' of the cycle world.

Our one "thriving" business in Peeples Valley is the Mountair (mountain air get it..sigh) general store.. It's the only gas station on a 35 mile stretch of scenic hi way 89.. Every weekend it's a parade of middle age crazy boys and girls, dressed up like doberman pincers in heat..

I like to stop in and check the scoots. (leaner it's beautiful) and see if there are any of the old bud's around.. this doesn't happen very often, but was involved so long that when i do see a grey beard on a scoot with out its headlight on.. i always check, and seems we always know some of the same group..

In all the years i didn't own anything but a motorcycle, and including the runs i've talked about where we hosted the red and white, etc.. I never dressed like anything but what i was. My boots were always spit shined, and it was a pair of jeans, and either T shirt or Pendelson & Leather.. That stuff, and all the memorys i still have.

Guess im rambling.. I love the fact that the motor company (what its called in bike talk) is doing well, and honestly it was not as bad as people say.. read old magazines.. It's always, even during the AMF period that gave a much needed infusion of money a good piece of work..

Do get tickled at guys doing "dress up" and still having to use their legs like training wheels, a real biker (lucky have my back here) can come to a stop and stay there with his feet on the pegs..eventually you'll hit the point where you "casually" put a leg down.. I love to see a guy who can still put his feet on the pegs,.. "then" let the clutch out..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

the magic

there is a tired old saying " if i have to explain,you wouldn't understand anyway",which is just somekind of excuse for blowing somebody off so i never bought into it.For me i had a Uncle that was a Hells Angel in San Francisco in the late 60s,early 70s,i lived in San Mateo,just down the road from Frisco and any time he came around on his bike,to family functions,flying his colors,he livened up the party,he was a blast,would give me( age 13-15) rides on his chopper,rigid frame,panhead(64),and scare the shit out of me.I wanted to be just like him.on the road people would stop and let him pass,he rode fast, popping a wheelie across an intersection was possible with that bike he had,we did it.
When i was 14and a half i got my motorcycle license and a Suzuki 90,rode the piss out of it year around.haven't been the same since.

HD,before AMF,was going tits up,AMF bought them and kept them afloat until the early 80s,when a group of employees bought them out from AMF.Harleys made during the AMF years suffered some but,definately not the "HI-Point" of motorcycles as there are way to many jap bikes that could claim that title.Harleys have always leaked oil to that point,every scooter tramp knew back then that a stock Harley was just good raw material to work with,back then there were plenty of pans,knucks,flatheads to work with,and an AMF bike was for newbies to the scene.Back then a biker took pride in being able to do every repair on his bike himself,definately would not take it to a shop unless absolutlyfuckingnecessarry.

starter buttons were looked down on,a biker kick started his bike.We had a contest with the guys i rode with,we would give a new guy a dollar bill,record the serial number and send him on a trip from point A to point B,at point B he had to produce that same dollar.It was to teach him creative thinking,self reliance.I knew a biker that traveled from Cali.to Sturgis with one dollar,he acted as a deaf mute in truck stops and bussed tables for a tip in the cafe.i knew guys with 3 ft.long siphon hoses in the sleeves of their leather jackets,hell back then a biker could get free gas at a gas station because the pump jockey thought the bike was cool,and the tank could be filled for 2.50,many times i could fill my tank,drink a beer,and buy a pack of cigs for 5 bucks.Lots of guys would find strippers to ride out to sturgis with them,the strippers would pay for everything.Some of my best times on the road i was broke and taken in by the kindness of others,not as a hand out i would do work for them.Spent many months riding around after i got out of the Marines doing just that,no ATM card to bail me out.I have been asked to leave a town before by the local cop.

anyway nowdays there are HD riders,not bikers,people that have paid their dues,bought a bike and want to live the life they knew existed but due to life getting in the way can only experience it on weekends,more power to them.Whoever said marketing was the main player is correct about HDs success,but that success has alienated the real bikers(Elton Fucking John played at HDs 100 year anniversary bash in Milwaukee,gimme a break!),Victory motorcycles have more American made parts on them than HD,i owned(and crashed) a Victory,it was a wondeful,reliable bike,faster than my brothers Twin Cam HD.My brother is a HD mechanic,his son is an HD mechanic,my son is an HD mechanic,i work on my own bike but i don't claim to be a mechanic cause the boys take it over if something goes wrong now.But i was tearing apart HDs at my kitchen table long before the boys were born.My divorce cost me lots of old photos of that shit going on.

so yeah Clint it might be that i can't explain it,you just might have to live it.

It was actually pretty easy.. After moving to Tucson from ILL the winter weather was.. guess non-existent is a good term.. I found a CM400 Honda that was perfect for all around riding. Put a windshield on it in the winter.. Rode all over AZ on that bike.. Only issue was a high freq vibration that would literally NUMB my butt after an hour, hands at two, and feet after three.. might sound like a joke, but on the road i could tell time by what was numb..Think this might be common to most 2 cylinder inline engines.

After having a bad experience with my first Harley in Illinois i was not much of a Harley fan at the time..Anyway great bike, one of life time list of two Honda's, and three Yamaha's, and maybe the best of the group, if far from being the fastest..This was a time when HD dealerships were empty.,Sure you guys remember how it was in late 70's early 80's. Only ones on Harley's were 1% and fact is these guys COULD keep them running..

Then some-som bitch stole it.. Got it back months later..Paid almost as much in storage fees as the bike was worth, but had a girl friend (just did a neck swivel..we DONT talk about past gals, least not and live) who i had taught to ride its replacement.. It's replacement was a box stock 80 XL that was everything the first one was not.. IE it ran.. I loved that bike, bought it from a fireman who wanted something fast (Crotch rockets were the rage) like most Harleys it had that great torque, but fast.. uh..nah..

Like a fool i sold it and bought the first evo sportie the dealer had.. RED.. Put a king sportster tank on it..(lean'r yours is a big tank, sporties usta have a 2.2 gal tank so a mandatory stop at 90 miles "if" you hit reserve) evo's were great for everyone but me..the cam tolerance (sporties have 4 of em) was so tight the engine seized on me down in SV.. but no matter.. i was hooked by then..

Since then ive had another sportie, two superglides, and as my back went a final FLH that Gloria and i "found" peeples valley on.. and in it's final ride here i had to get off of three times. We kept it for awhile.. My storage shed's pretty nice, and the ramp on it was designed for the Electraglide not the lawn mower in it now.. NOT crying over spilled beer here. We have been blessed health wise..If i wanted to i guess i could get a trike.. but i just don't think i could do that. ok real quick.. (like anything i do is quick..guys i know..but remember im "YOUR" retard) in summery

the fastest i've been would be the yamaha XS1100 at 130-135 I know thats nothing compared to a sports bike, guessing any good 600 can top it.. but for a heavy standard as much as i wanted

Most comfortable was the last the big FL. It flat ran as well..Gloria and i were coming back from the far west side (buckeye) I-10 WAY west of town took it to a hundred so Gloria could tell the girls about it..Big eyes and big smie when i pointed to the gauge. We did interstates at 80-85 anyway so not that much more.. just the idea of it..

Most dependable ..cross between that CM400 and "honestly" the last three Harleys..

Most fun.. Bike camping on ANY scoot.. can't beat it.. course on a V you can throw a potato in there and have dinner ready.. seriously.. you can go places (slowly of course) off road, so the whole desert becomes one big campground..

You can do everything on a bike you can in a car.. just harder.. and when that part of it starts to be a pain insead of fun.. then ..duh..

Great history Greg,

for the most part, speed for me is on four wheels. Back in the late '70's early '80's I raced a 'works' Suzuki RM125 in intermediate class, I finished well but mom put the kibosh on the deal as she figured I would kill myself.......Hell, I might have been the next Roger DeCoster.......lol

Speaking of speed, last August I ran the STI out west towards Wendover (I-80) and reached 165 (gps reading) speedo only goes to 160, had pedal, revs and boost to spare....I chickened out as I value my licence..lol I really wan't to run at 'speed week', I know that if I crank up the boost, I can break 200....and get a hat! a hat!, a red hat that says 200 mph club.......Or I might blow the fucker up, there is that...LOL

Oh Man

My 2nd bike was a AMF HD. '83 sporty 1000. Like padre said, watch the mileage and the reserve.
(only had to push once, about 4 blocks) I loved that bike. It didn't give me any trouble.
Before that I had a suzuki 400 and just 2 years ago I signed my last bike over to my oldest daughter. Yamaha TW200, enduro type that had a rear tire that looked like it came off of a sport quad. Nice little beater for running to the store or crossing the creek at the farm.
Yep, gotta get another bike.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

one time during Bike Week.

Him and his ol'lady hit the beach and drove south along it for a little bit. They are doing it and this cop walks up and is looking at his bike telling him he really likes it, but could he get his pants back on and get it off his beach.

I remember being tied to the bar on the back of my brothers bike with a belt when cruising to Maine with only two stops on the way.

Lived at a club house for 5 months right before I went into the service at 17. Dave Prathers dad wore Wings and was kinda the meanest son of a bitch most people would ever meet in their life. Yet he spent 3 years of my life keeping me out of prison or from killing myself being too stupid.

The guys, they were the type that if they told you something like "If you ever do that again I'm going to cut you" and you did it, so would they and not think twice about it. But at the same time, if someone was hurting or needed help and they could provide it they would and never ask or expect anything in return.

weird, huh? ...

I think you are correct in your assessment that you have to experience life to enjoy it. My father was a cop in the late 70's and early 80's. He was friends with the Hells Angels chapter in the Northwest, (if there was one). He told me that they were good guys, just wanted to be left alone, if you respected them, they would respect you. He was the only cop they would talk to when they rode into town. I can understand the theory behind riding in the open air, ISD makes it sound like it gives the illusion of enhanced freedom.
Perhaps because I have not lived the motorcycle life and the Harley Davidson sect in particular I will not understand the draw of the motorcycle. I actually posted my query with some reservation as I was sure I was going to be flamed. Thank you for the lesson and stories. They shed some light on the two wheel culture.

Put this hat on and go sit in the corner....

hehehe

seriously, it's cool, you should ask. Uncle always told me "JD, thats what he used to call me, the only stupid question is an unanswered question because you were to stupid to ask" and I would say "Thanks for thinking me stupid you old screw you can go get your own beer next time"

But I always went and got it, otherwise I couldn't drink the first swallow...

I really liked it when he wanted me to roll him a joint!

Just that simple.. Guys this is really pretty cool if you think about it.. there exists a mutual levil of respect on here that i doubt you can find most anywhere else on the net.. Be it the years we've shared, the validation thru photo's .. what ever..

I'd actually like to thank those of the group who are more "single gun thread" types.. talking about all of you very serious "gun only" guys who im pretty sure find our rant/ramble a little less inspiring than a straight forum on say AR's.. cough cough..

I couldn't be more serious about this.. We have a great mix of GUN stuff, and IMHO the rant/ramble thing. for those of you who like a little less "verbiage" or separate subjects. Thanks for not (using Clint's words here) flaming those of us who do..

On the wood bike?

I'm guessing 1/2 mile per tank. B/C that's as far as you'd get before you were sitting on a pile of hot coals. :D

mattracks

I started to look for mattracks, I wonder if anyone has tried to install them on the Rokon?
I still wish I had the money to have mattracks for my pick up and my quad...

block and his impreza

The funny thing about that video, I was only able to watch it, so maybe the narration explained more, but mattracks are speed rated, I think they recommend 40 mph. Because it was Kenny Block's there may have been modifications. So when they try to say it is the fastest snowcat vehicle, perhaps they are foregoing the actual speed on the snow, and commenting on the potential speed of the vehicle.
Could you imagine throwing a track at that speed? Either way it would be hella fun to do that and not worry about the car, because let's face it, he did not pay for it...

Gotta go where the money is I guess....Subaru pulled out of factory sponsorship in WRC a couple years ago, I just can't feature that, it was their bread and butter IMO

what?

From I have heard, the Subaru was one of if not the best car for WRC. That is crazy, kinda like Anheiser Busch pulling out of motor sports...
