    I'm not positive, but I don't think the majority of HD"s sold are Sportsters. I would think that Big Twins make up the majority of sales, just judging by the number of them I see.

    Quite a few HD rider wave around here, not all by any means but not just a few either.

    Pretty even mix out here in Cali. What I do notice from riders of big twins is that they do seem to look down at the small bikes even though it has a harley badge. Many of them call them "bitch bikes" and buy them for the wifey to follow them around. The little bikes have the worst resale of a harley I think.

    Too bad that Honda didn't do that with all those shit R/Rs..

    The most famous of the lurching Harleys retold around Harley campfires, is the one aboot the harleydood who stopped (not in lifestyle I hope or dentistry) by the barrier at a railroad crossing. Just before the train passes (maybe full of Japanese made bikes) the dood's clutch cable breaks and the dood is transformed into a harleyburger.

    Somehow my H-D riding neighbor traded a shadow 1100 for an rc51 a few months back. He wanted to try sportbiking and he doesn't really want to keep it--says he doesn't like to take corners (typical). He goes on about how fast it is, and I can attest it's real fast.

    So the other day my other neighbor and a friend are out in the street and he mentions that i have 2 crotch rockets and that his friend has a badass sportster.

    The sportster rider brags that his is a 1200 with 'tons of mods' and that it has 100 hp and will smoke any bike from light to light. I don't even try to argue and just shake my head. My rc51 neighbor comes over and starts downplaying the rc51 and states that his softail is faster.

    Now at this point I am a little annoyed at their arrogance and commence to state how the horsepower numbers and weight of the bikes does not logically add up in the Harleys favor of being faster. They just repeat the same garbage and then I challenge them to a drag while I ride the rc51. They just laughed and blew it off.

    I am gonna have that race and shut their stupid h-d mouths up. I can't stand blatant ignorance over unbiased, logically tested and proven opinions and facts.

    I'll let you know how that race goes.

    Watch it! That RC51, if Stock, has a tall first gear! My VFR would go toe to toe with my son on the 2000 SP1 RC51 in First! Once we both hit 2nd it was all over for me!

    Much like a mate's S1000rr HP4 from the lights to 60mph, even in its Sports or Race settings it's odd seeing his front wheel next to me slightly lifting then settling as its DTC comes in and out, once over 60 it's game over for me though.

    That gives me an idea. Maybe they can do a whole Myth Busters show dedicated to Harley Davidson.

    Don't let this opportunity pass you by. What a great way to add to a farkle collection. Bet them even money or even give them odds. This is kinda mean but let the harleydood (s) get out of the chute first , and as you blow by them in first or second, up shift into the next cog. Another hustle is to have them give you odds if you start in 2nd.

    Had two of them (harleydoods) telling me the other day that they only used the rear brakes.

    Have you all seen the new prototype 2016 retro Harley-Davidson? They are calling this limited edition retro bike "The Hoarder?

    BB, time to get your pre-order in!

    LOL! On the Stuka pics.

    Its a mad, mad, mad , mad, mad world boys and girls. If you have ever wondered why we vote in some of the morons we do (both parties) look no further than the populace who "only uses their rear brakes" to stop and the logical fallacies they embrace.

    When Fascism comes to America it will be voted into office legally and I am sure the orange and black cult will be some of the major supporters with ol' Shad LeDue right out in front of the HOG rally ushering it in! Imagine the new fascist flag, United States of 'merica listed like a HD ad on the new flag with orange and black stripes!? F-ing epic...the faithful are already lining up at the door.
