He wore out the rear tyre?!? on a harley?! He was riding it? Are you sure you're meant to do that?

Do some harleys come standard with a 260 rear? Or is it an aftermarket wheel?

any bike shop thats not a harley dealer. even better if you can take the whole wheel in to avoid the embarasment of a harley attached to it

Shmeh.. ragging on harleys isn't even vaguely funny any more, especially because at the very least stirring apple dorks you can stir someone in particular... this makes a grand total of 2 people with harleys on the forum that I know of..

And you're not going to stand there straight faced and pick on Mr Orange's taste in bikes are you?!

keep trying... as far as i can remember ive never given the mac, iphone, ps3 or xbox shit... and if i have said anything negative to that effect it's been because i have honestly thought that not because i was trying to "fit in" with the whole "cruisers suck and harleys are shit" crowd... hahaha

but whatever dude, you keep on truckin

I thought it was pretty funny.

I thought the comments calling Harleys rubbish and finding tyres at the tip far worse than drews comment.

I'm not exactly the "fit in" type Merudo, I don't like harleys because they're an engineering nightmare, too long a wheelbase and low a center of gravity means they're likely to lock up rather than stoppie/wheelie which is a serious safety concern, the fact that they have a very high rake means that they also tend to then drop the front to one side or another because of the massive wheel offset required to keep them ridable with what I call cosmetic rake. On top of that they are typically of disturbingly agricultural construction and can frequently contain glaring design flaws in the name of styling.

Look, if you want to have an opinion based on other peoples opinion thats fine by me... well... sort of... but I prefer to base my opinions on facts, like the fact that harleys and harley clones are a typically poorly designed abortion of a thing which is solely designed to tie into peoples midlife crisis.

+1 Harley's suck.

+1 we've heard it all a million times.

+1 if you start a thread on a sportsbike forum about Harley's, someone HAS TO say how shit they are. It's an obligation, a duty, and a pleasure.

Plus another example of Merudo singling Drew out to sling some mud, the only person he ever singles out, because Drew doesn't bite back. Is it because Drew won't ))<>(( forever with you Merudo? :D

Meh, drew's whole argument above is that if you ride faster on a harley than is safe they're dangerous, last time I checked the same thing applies to sportsbikes.

Newsfuckingflash: harleys aren't meant to go fast. They're for posing about on. They do that extremely well.
