Keeps DAKEZ in electrons to post here, doesn't it?

I suspect Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha (excuse me- Star) motorcycles marketing execs would let Charlie Manson sleep with their partner to get a share of the brand recognition that HD has developed.

I mean FFS, I'd get made fun of at work for bringing it that weak and constantly repeating the same old shit all over again. 99% of ribbing is being clever. Old shit gets old. At least go with something like "escaped gimp" or "S&M model" or "Hey, you forgot your ball-gag".
Well then... THE VILLAGE PEOPLE IT IS!!

Nobody here hates anyone. We are like a roomful of friends at a pub handing out good natured ribbing. If you can't handle that perhaps another type of forum is in order. Dress like a pirate... Take a pirate ribbing.
I hate Dakez but you don't see me posting silly rants.
Quit yer cryin' and learn to take a joke helotaxi

To the point:
I laughed similarly as I saw a dude walking down the road a couple weeks ago (on an 80 degree day) wearing one of those old school, Blue Oyster Club style, leather "biker" jackets.

P.S. I don't hate Dakez. I just like to give him the finger

This is better than trailering a bike to bike week!
What a poser, a real Harley rider would have pulled his jacket out of the trunk of a new Dodge Challenger.

Gotta love Harley-tards who buy into the corporate marketing scheme thinking they're making a statement or looking like an outlaw.









I don't have anything against Harleys... But the weekend warriors that put a thousand miles on their bikes each year riding back and forth to the bar, yet dress like pirates all year round, crack me up.

BTW, if I haven't mentioned it before, I DO think that Harley Davidson bikes, despite all of the joking and hating are hands down THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BIKES ON THE ROAD!!!!!! Oh, if I were a rich man!

A thousand miles? Whoa- hardcore, man. A friend just bought an '07 RoadKing with 3,000 miles on it.

That was two weeks ago; he's already put two years worth of miles on it....

Did you stop by the store again? It must have been Wednesday when I took the 800XC down to Eugene for a Rain/ Gear testing ride. (both bike and Belstaff gear performed flawlessly)


Grand Opening the 28th & 29th. I sure hope they get more bikes to us before then I am going to run out. Sold another 800XC today.

Hahaha. The guy I bought my SV off of had it a year and put 600 miles on it. I had a thousand miles on it three days after bringing it home. I seriously can't fathom how some people put so few miles on their bikes. I can't NOT put miles on mine! Though, that may just be an admission of lack of self control!

Last year the First Sergeant (who is your stereotypical weekend warrior Harley guy) at my guard unit was giving the company a briefing on motorcycle safety. He started out the talk by telling us that motorcyclists only put one or two thousand miles a year on our bikes, so we're always novices compared to car drivers. While that is actually good advice to most, I couldn't help but chuckle knowing I put about 15k a year on mine... Though mine is also my primary means of transportation.
