My exact feeling.


They make some nice looking bikes and if I had "money to burn" then I might have one in the stable as well to play around with but nothing really "draws" me to them.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?

Haha. The only shirts I wear bear my own branding.
My employer quite enjoys it...

Wanna be in a motorcycle club and do fun things?
...like on TV, but clean and without so much drama?
HD Dealership = Instant Club-like "feelings" of Comradeship and perceived "Brotherhood".

...you meet the nicest people on a ...What?

Demographically, ...y'all're it. They're counting on at least some of 'ya. They're looking at me, at 48, real close...
Next in line, it is Honda. They're looking at everyone.

Crazy thing:...

Badlands Pawn
...giving away free tattoos that say, "Badlands Pawn & Gold"
Wtf would do that?
Not the guy getting it, as he'd be a dumbass in his own right, but the guy running the business with his name tattooed on some fools forearm?
Marketing Genius ...that Chuck Brennan.
Harley Davidson continues to give a crystal-clear roadmap of how-to's...

Thanks for the tip on google.news.com. I like to get the world news at a glance. I book marked the website. As for the church of Harley, a little too over priced for me. I raised a family of 5 kids so I have always had to be price conscious of everything I buy.

I bought a brand new Yamaha Roadstar 3 years ago, and I always felt I had too much money tied up in it, so I sold it too my son who liked it, but with me, everything comes down to my thrifty habits, so the church of Harley will have to wait.

I don't know what the key to success is, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

News.google.com has a Preferences button in the upper right corner.

You can add or delete items of interest.

Very flexible and over the years I have fine tuned it so that it keeps me busy for a while.

Try adding your own County where you live. You would be surprised at what the local newspapers don't print.

I have spare 530 chain and master links .... but they are Reynold.


I say that because I have a cousin who buys his in bulk using some kind of "industrial" chain that is used on factory machines .... .... and ever so often he just pulls new chain on the sprockets.
