    Here's my Norton, and a buddy's BSA, "marking their territory" at the York, PA Harley plant :D
    - a friend was visiting from England and we rode in to take the free tour. Leaked oil all over the nice clean parking lot there! :rofl

    Yeah, not bad! I live not too far off, and FINALLY it dawned on me that I could take out of town visitors, or folks who come in from out of the country, even. My buddy always loads 'em up in the car to go drive around Gettysburg, and I'm like, "really?". Screw that! Let's go tour Harley. PLUS it's air conditioned! I thought eyeballs were going to pop right out of peoples' heads when we KICK STARTED the bikes. It was a gas.
    Leaving oil drops on the nice lot was an additional bonus. :evil
