Come on guys, HDs are far from junk. They aren't what I want, mainly for two reasons that aren't related to quality. I can't come up with the big bucks they want for what you get. I don't like the phoneys who try to be bad a** and hang around in large groups. I know there are a lot of great guys with HDs, but I don't care for the image the majority are trying to put on.
The folks I know with HDs (two of whom are completely normal) haven't had much trouble with their bikes. I do like the look of them, they sure as hell say 'motorcycle'. I'm happy with my Wing and enjoy taking a poke at HDs due to the pomposity of a lot of their owners (all present excluded). I wouldn't throw one out of my garage if someone wants to donate to me. I'd even ride it! Probably not for long trips though.
