How about don't buy a Harley since all they do is leak oil?

They are badass bikes but I just wouldn't own one. I would be fine on a Yamaha wannabe. But then I would never own a road bike in So Cal.

Just because they their fork is made by the same company doesn't mean they're the same. Each motorcycle manufacturer has their suspension built to their specs, not the suspension companies specs. They just build what the bike manufactuer wants. I guess my shocks are the same ones they run on the trophy trucks since they say bilstein on the side.

i have seen a handful of people that actually ride and for some reason choose a harley.
You sure sound like the guy that rides a Yamaha v-twin (CLONE) from N Carolina. Sure, there are plenty of posers that ride HD and I ignore them for the most part, but the posers that bug me the most are the ones on metrics with shit exhaust that sounds like a pop corn machine, and they always have to crank it up WTF

BTW: My first tank slap experience was on a Yamaha 500 back in the '70's. HD did not invent tank slap or whatever you want to call it.

it's all about being on the road man.

when it comes down to it.

just bike choice depends on how you would like to handle it.

like this guy....

he don't care about flex in his handlebars.

That pic looks to be a bit distorted, and those braids on the grips are a clear indication of a poser. I'm guessing the tool bag is empty too.

I ride a Harley, '06 Electra Glide Ultra Classic, never had it wobble on me.

I don't consider myself a 'harley person', I don't wear costumes, just proper safety gear; I don't go to rallies or harley rides. I just really like riding it down the highway at 90mph, gf on back, and all our gear stowed away in the ample storage, while being super comfortable. It's a great machine, even has a stereo; just change the oil regularly.

I grew up riding dirtbikes, now my main whip is a Suzuki DR650 dual sport modded for offroad, my play bike is a YZ250 2 stroke, and my travel bike the Harley. I only ride the harley if my gf wants to go and the ride is longer than a couple hours.

I would ride any bike if I liked it as much as the Harley. And any gear-head can appreciate a loud-ass set of pipes when you twist the throttle, regardless of where it was made or how it's branded.

It's true, there are plenty of status douches on Harleys, but that's true of the street bikers, dualsported that never see dirt, etc. etc. Hell, to be selfish enough to ride a bike on the street already says something about your ego. Anyone that rides just for transportation 1/2 full of bs, in the US anyway.

My Suzuki is my favorite tho: wheelies, whoops, and a plate!

I work on bikes for a living, and I HATE loud pipes. Nothing more screams louder "look at me I'm a moron" than that.

i dont get the whole typical poser fashion rider deal, isnt that alot like all of us?
we prefer toyota trucks why? and guys with 2wd lift them why? (im one of those)
because we love the trucks and we love the look of them even if its a pavement pounding mall crawler. and as far as loud pipes my pappy almost got hit more than once because nobody could see him or hear him, not for the rumble or anything but for his safety and my moms safety

Well it's hard to read my "I'm a moron shirt" when I'm riding, so the loud pipes just make it easier for you to pick me out of a crowd.

Have you ever ridden a HD Ultra Classic?

Sure have. Our dealership also owns 3 harley dealerships.

I'd take a Victory over an HD anyways.

Sure, there are lots of bikes I would take. But man, the HD is really nice to ride on long trips. And from my experience, loud pipes are only loud when you're not the one on the bike. Believe me, we have an annual biker gathering downtown... F my ears, and don't plan on sleeping much that week either. The only time I really hear my HD is when I'm twisting hard for fun/adrenaline punch, but under normal riding it really doesn't seem loud.

Plus: wow, you guys run 3 HD shops and you hate loud pipes... must be tough.
