    "Harley Davidson the most efficient way to turn gasoline into noise, without the pesky side effect of horsepower. Each roar of a harley muffler is the whimper of a sad inner child crying to be noticed."

    I know standard Harley joke from those not in the know, I figured I'd get off on the wrong foot before I said there are some amazing photos in here!

    As per my title...arm chair adv tourer...I consider my HD EG Classic the mini van of motorcycles...sitting in an arm chair all day long....Harley does offer a great bike for touring with a great dealer network and quality of the saddle bags / tourpack in comparison to other products out there....not going to bash other HD owners with their loud pipes each to his own....I am not a true believer in loud pipes save lives...advanced riding courses do...I probably have one of the quietist HD on the market...I put in better speakers before I did a stage one...thanks for the encouragement and I will add the ride home...eventually...

    I have found that most of the guys bashing HD have never rode one. "We fear that which we don't understand." ALL two wheelers are A-OK in my estimation.

    That being said...the guys on the VERY loudest HD's do bug the $hit outta me...and yeah...I own and ride one (with a pretty tame exhaust note that is.)

    herein lies one of the problems...

    many Harley owners have NO sence of humor about their "rides". :deal


    I got almost pissed off the other week when I pulled into the local corner market.

    I was walking into the back of the store where the post office boxes are at, and this guys sais "Nice Bike Dude" to me...but there was no way possible for him to have even seen my bike. He only heard it. It obviously is a Harley from it's sound...therefore, it must be a "cool bike"!! ('cause as we all know....ALL Harley's are COOL....right???)

    Fuckin' sheep!! :bluduh



    OK....I guess he waz payin' me a compliment...........but c'mon, keep it real!!

    Thanks, I've not posted anything yet... Though, one day soon there should be a write up.
    You can check out a bit from my amusing trip through the Americas - the link is in my signature below.

    The trip reports from RoadHD are great. I was getting kinda bummed because I only had a 09 Road King and it seemed like everyone else had all these cooler bikes. I figured I was doing ok in general as I was certainly getting more miles done then "normal" riders. After seeing what he did with his bike in South America, I was just like "well hell that is pretty damn cool".

    This year I have been Dallas to vegas via carlsbad, el paso, tucson, all backroads in AZ into vegas and back. Dallas to Albuquerque NM, up into colorado, across and up to bluff utah, grand canyon, flagstaff az across back to dallas. Dallas to nashville down to Birmingham and back across to dallas. A couple of Dallas to chicago and back trips. Then just a bunch of rides through Tx hill country.

    States visited though missing Alabama, Tn, and Wisconsin forgot to check the box...
