Harley will license their name to anything that will turn a buck for Harley.

How many HD riders do you know that could successfully negotiate a tailgate ramp on their hog, anyway?

We were talking about this at work one day. I have NEVER met a F150 HD owner who actually owned a Harley...YMMV

And I'm not bashing Harleys, but I do find their licensing to be eccentric. I'm holding out for the Honda Motorcycle edition of the Nissan Titan.

Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy.

I hear tell that they're a-gettin' ready to license this accessory:





Their licensing is not eccentric as much as it's very telling about their target market.

So, this has now turned into an HD bashing thread? Can we get back to Dragon Fail? There's quite a few other threads out there if you want to discuss HD.

Quite true. Nothing brings out the bandwagon dickbags quite like bashing Harleys.


And no, I'm not talking about Harley fans.

Perhaps, but can we at least get some pics of them at Deals Gap doing stupid stuff? There's plenty of them there.
