This is not meant to start an argument, I just want your interesting views on the subject I have been a biker since 1978, the only Harley I have owned was a 250 two stroke so that does not really count as a Harley . I have had many MIJ and British bikes so no experience of the aforementioned, my current beast is a Triumph Street Triple . My view of Harleys is of an old fashioned bike that does not go fast, handle well or brake effectively, especially in comparison with MIJ/European bikes, a bike that requires a lot of maintenance, is heavy and expensive in terms of what you actually get . I know that there are countless Harleys around the world so there must be something unique about them, they certainly sound good, looks are subjective, am I right in saying they have `character`and that owners feel a sense of something special when riding them ? So, what turns you on with Harley Davidsons ?
