    If I may, He's talking about Travel, which may or may not involve riding a motorcycle. That's my take, not knowing the douchbag myself. :D

    And DWoodward, that was the best freaking response I believe I've ever read. I'm off to buy a TShirt and use it to clean off my bike.

    This guy actually attended AND GRADUATED from MMI. What the hell are they teaching folks. He and the other mechanic at the shop claim their teachers told them to never use Shell Rotella because it is recycled oil. :lol3

    Pretty much.

    Put another way- I don't want to meet people who want to meet me because of what I ride, or that I ride. When I do want to meet people, I very rarely want to talk about motorcycles.

    While there is a Honda in my garage- a) it's not mine, and b) It's broken. :dunno.

    At some point you'd have to just be rude and pointedly ask the instructor to see his qualifications. I mean come on.

    Advice like this clown is giving out could cost a guy several grand, easy.

    Following a catastrophic slide that saw a 50 percent decline in yearly sales following the global recession, Harley-Davidson is looking stronger than ever on the eve of their first quarter earnings statement, which will be released this Thursday. Analysts are predicting a 96 cent per share profit, with most of those experts classifying HOG stock as a "buy" or a "strong buy," despite decreasing net income over the last two quarters due to tough winter and a late advent of spring riding weather.

    If anyone needed any further proof about Harley’s ability to appeal to everyone just read this. According to Polk data, Harley-Davidson was the #1 seller of new street motorcycles (all engine sizes) in the United States in 2012 to young adults ages 18-34, women, African-Americans and Hispanics, as well as Caucasian men ages 35 plus. This was the 5th straight year that Harley has achieved this distinction. The data shows that Harley-Davidson has experienced double-digit market share gains with these customer groups in the U.S. from 2008 to 2012.

    This is garbage. HD makes ugly motorcycles that only pirates and losers want. All the groups mentioned (young adults ages 18-34, women, African-Americans and Hispanics, as well as Caucasian men ages 35 plus) are not worthy of respect from someone as urbane and sophisticated as me.

    Harley uses 10mm valve shims in their V-Rod.
    My KTM 690 uses the same shims.
    HD dealers stock them.
    KTM dealers do not, don't even call back with availability. :asshat
    Thank you HD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
