I had never really played that whole U.S. Made bullshit with what brand was better than the other. To me, I just wanted a motorcycle and cool t-shirts to match. Period.
The ugliness of the Harley Davidson reared its’ ugly face one evening when my wife and I visited a casino while our riding. We parked our V-Star in the required motorcycle parking area and were respectful not to park too close other bikes. We delivered a few Throttler Motorcycle magazines there as well.
As we were leaving the casino and prepping to ride home, I realized that someone had key scratched my teal green tank. I was floored. Who exactly was this childish coward of a person to destroy another person’s property? At the very least, this pig could have stayed and looked in my face!
I have no time for motorcycle riders that only see their brands. Let’s get this straight; Harleys are not 100 percent American made.
Now, I won’t go into the details, but you would be surprised where parts are made. They’re not made all in the Milwaukee plant!
All that said, in my mind’s eye a Harley motorcycle rides and drives only like a Harley. Of all of the motorcycles I’ve driven, I love my Harley. My wants to put rhinestones on her footpegs.
My current ride is a Harley Davidson 2004 Dyna Super Glide with black paint. Though, I do have my sights on the new SOFTAIL SLIM, pictured in this post. (Image credits to H-D)
Will I ever own another Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, KTM, Kawasaki or BMW motorcycle or dirt bike? Yes. Will I also own a Harley at the same time. Yes.
