That American Dream...THE HARLEY HOG

Harley-Davidson: The most efficient way to convert gasoline into noise without the adverse side effect of horsepower.

Is it true that Harleys are chick magnets?
Yes, but only if the chick has a steel plate in her head.

What's the cheapest way to get another 50hp from your Harley?
Trade it in on a Kawasaki.

Why don't Harley riders sit on their bikes when the sidestands are down?
They're afraid to lean over that far.

What's the difference between a Harley and a Harley owner's home?
The Harley costs more and has fewer wheels.

How do you now you're riding a Harley?
While coming off an exit-ramp you get passed by a Vespa.

How do you know all the aftermarket parts you bought for your Harley are worth the money?
You finally break into the 15's in the quarter mile.


How do Harley engineers tell if a bike is worthy of the Harley name?
They check to make sure the exhaust noise in decibels exceeds the horsepower rating.

Why don't Harley owners smile?
Once you realized you got conned into paying $25,000 for an outdated piece of $#!+ would YOU be smiling?

What's the difference between a Harley Davidson and a vacuum cleaner?
The location of the dirtbags.

Why do Harleys have fringe?
So you can tell if they're moving.

How do you know your Harley is handling great?
You can almost keep up with the logging trucks when you're riding in the
canyons.

How is a Harley Davidson like an old dog?
They both like to ride in the back of pickup trucks.

What is the difference between a Harley Davidson and an old dog?
The dog can get in the back of the pickup by itself.

Why couldn't the Harley mechanic repair the doorknob?
Some things just can't be fixed with only a hammer and a rope.

What's the difference between a Harley taken to Daytona on a trailer and one that's being ridden there?
The one on the trailer is going about 30mph faster.

Why do all Harley owners have trailers??
So they can go around corners faster!


And the final nail on Harley ownership...........................


Did you know 95% of all Harleys are still on the road?
The other 5% actually made it home.

If you have to explain ownership then it ain't worth effort.

Maybeeeeee - but out in this part of the country, about 80% of the bikes being ridden are good 'ol HD - and when one goes by, it will ALWAYS turn heads:

What *I* ride:



A very nice bike, top of the heap in power an build quality in the early '80's - will run the wheels off any Harley - but won't get a second look riding down main street!

How about a 40 year old "Jap bike"? 1971 Honda 750 Four - licensed, inspected and street legal.

There's a lot of truth up there as well as laughs!

I've owned may bikes and many brands including Harley's with a 63 pan, 75 shovel, and an 86 block. I grew out of the need to turn heads with chrome and loud pipes. Polishing my bikes and being afraid to get them dirty gets old, I'd rather ride. Now I have a Triumph for nostalgia and a Beemer for distance and engineering prowess.

Harley Davidson leads the way in getting more untrained, untalented, weekend warriors on the highway than any other brand. A high percent of which are extremely dangerous.

Loud pipes just make noise, talent and situational awareness is what saves lives!

I have hauled in the back of the truck...more than one Harley that would not run, but I have NEVER hauled a Jap bike. And sure see a lot of Goldwings (Jap bike) with well over 100,000 miles on the original engine.

If I had anything than ran as ragged as the hawg that sat next to me at the light this morning it would be back in the shop until it was fixed properly. What a pos. I have no problem with the guys on the two wheel caddys with proper mufflers but the social misfits looking for attention like a cranky 4 year old are waste of fresh air and groceries.
