If you think that anybody who wants a harley would be satisfied with a piaggio scooter, you're missing the point. The point is the Harley part of the equation.

When you turn 60 or 70 and have a bad back and bad knees and still want to ride. That thing will look pretty damn cool then. And your grand kids will love riding with you.

mmm, maybe they should try it. I don't understand missing out on loads of fun because the product has a different logo on it.

if your knees and back ache, get a comfy step through scooter and enjoy. cheap, simple, easy fun. the neighborhood kids don't care for riding on my crotchrocket, my buddies loud harley, or the drz. ... but they love the scooter

step throughs forthewin !

If you don't understand why people buy Harley bikes, that's fine. It's not your deal. You're disapproval is noted, and discarded appropriately.

send all those worthless can-ams you find right on over... I'll accept as many as I have room for !

I'm not planning on taking them offroad, so I shouldn't notice the traction control or abs sucking.

read the quote again. increase the font size as big as you need to see that there was nothing written between the lines.

Should have bought a Harley! Oh, wait.

I can hear some old fart on a Road King now when he sees one of these going down the road, "hey! Buy a real F*@&$n bike!"

Probably never. They dont build the type of bike you like, dont buy one. If they did, most people saying "when will they build something id want to ride?" will just find another reason why it's not the pefect bike for them and then continue bitching about the MoCo. With all the motorcycle companies out there building so many different motorcycles, why are you so upset that you cant find the one you want from HD?
