The Harley wobble is well documented. Not corrected because it is not worth it. Ride like a tool and die seems to be harleys stance. No cases has anyone ever been riding legally. Frankly outside a showroom I've never seen a legal Harley. 99.9% fashion riders anyway. Who cares

is that a question... think that's pretty obvious...

and just the overwhelming majority are vain fashion riders.... you know loud pipes, and costumes, expensive bikes with fashion add ons, weekend rides in groups ... fashion riders.. its a look.. like a tattoo or a drag queen

i have seen a handful of people that actually ride and for some reason choose a harley.

I would say a good percentage of bikers (in America that is) are fashion riders no matter what kind of bike they are on.
Doesn't matter if you choose to dress up like a Power Ranger or one of the Village People, most are concerned with looking cool more than they care about the actual riding.
Which is fine, we all do it (by we I mean human beings not just bikers) to some extent.

WTF was this thread about again?

anyone stupid enough to go 90+ on a harley has no brain IMO. Especially the 95% of them that wear either no helmet, or a glorified bicycle helmet.

Anyone ever notice how most d-bag harley riders never wave to you if you're on a jap bike?

On a side note, does anybody know where I can find the "If Harley made an airplane, would you fly in it?" Tshirt? I've been looking for one for years and have never found it. Provide a link if possible please.

Must be a regional thing. Here in the midwest, a vast majority will wave back. When I lived in Las Vegas, rarely would a harley rider wave.

I've been on lots of clapped-out POS dirtbikes, and never, ever had one go into a death wobble! Harley-Davidson owners are made to believe it's them, not the bike. It's simply not possible that they could have a flaw. And how dare you question the almighty Harley-Davidson!

and it's more bad suspension setup than anything that causes tank slapping on a dirtbike (mostly on whoops).

have you ever raced dirtbikes? and no at the shop we worked at if a bike came in and they said it wobbled it was always the neck bearing they always wear in around 20k miles

Going fast on a Harley is suicide...bikes are shit and not made for anything but low-speed cruising, hopefully short distances, so that the nuts and bolts that fall off can be picked up later.
