Half a Harley? Does the build quality improve if you only have half? :lol:

Perhaps we need photos of you sat upon each of the bike options, so we can make an educated choice?

Perhaps if you learned to post pictures properly, you'd be less open to mockery. Good lad. ;)

Nevertheless, anyone who knows anything about motorcycles knows that Harley's builds have gone through the floor in recent years, unless you pay through the nose (£30k plus) for a high end custom model. Have a Google, there's even an owners club for disgruntled Harley owners...

Course, if all that matters to you is the badge, that's just fine.

Properly??? Not a clue what you mean.

As far as Harley, in general. I was just having a bit of fun. Harley Davidson may not be the bike it once was. But there's still classic Harleys, and yes, custom Harleys.

Maybe I just learned you're not the one to have a bit of fun with. Sorry to offend.

Later, dude.............

Usual BCB stuff. Someone responds to something they don't like, but actually was never an insult with a complete overreaction, then gets all pissy when they get the same back. It's the overall MO of this board. And it's fucking hilarious! :mrgreen:

It's sort of like watching your granddad trying to programme his VCR...

What's the point of riding a bike if it doesn't look good? It's gotta look HOT. 8-)

That Duke is pretty sweet.

Did you say 10,000 pounds?! Wow, $20k. I didn't think they were that much.

The problem with this bike is the existence of things in the UK called "corners" which American riders apparently don't have to contend with.

Yes, it's a joke. Choppers have declined in popularity here. They handle like crap, and aren't comfortable at all. Plus they're under fire as to clear air laws. They're going the way of the dinosaur.

They do look good though. Well, not that particular one but they CAN look good. They're more for admiring when parked than actually riding but the better ones are a sight to see. They usually sound pretty sensational too.
