Yeah see, it's not a fair comparisson. The Audio doesn't capture the whole effect of the harley... The part where it shakes soo bad your eyebals hurt... and the part where it leaks all kinds of oil... Oh, and the part where the bolts start rattling and coming loose and falling off.

That is funny but one truth is the ba ding ding ding would have already left the Harley and would not be in the pic! Sounds much more like a small block Ford though! You could have picked a different ride for your example and not one that runs 0-60 in right at 3 seconds with a top speed of nearly 145 mph with the screen on. No knock on Harley just different. Smooth as silk like riding on a cloud and yes at speed I can hear everything going on around me:D

Seriously, I respect Honda for their engineering and design. I've ridden many GW's and I like them a lot, but for my own ride, I just have different preferences. If I were looking for a long-distance cruiser with isolated road-feel (less tiring over 500 miles), Gold Wing over Harley is the way I'd go

PS 85% of a Valkyrie is made in AMERICA. Harley Fatboy says Harley Davidson USA (refering to the corporation) not made in America so maybe you should check where you got your soul it wasn't here. All Valkyries and Goldwings are built right here and exported. Not many motorcycles can say Made in the USA but the Valk can along with the Goldwing and Harley Ultra.The Audio doesn't capture the whole effect of the harley...

SD you can count on it and the beer is usually pretty cold as I am never too far from a frothy beverage distribution center. Love your boat and I love Harley's but am no longer a V-Twin person. As for the Boxer BMW I agree and the Boxer engine in the Valkyrie is similar and one of the reasons I went with it many years ago. The main reason was the comercial of I believe Freddie Spencer flat tracking a Valk across a dries lake bed in 1996. Very cool video. Goes through too many tires!:o Not to mess this, up but I owned a BMW and loved it.You want to talk about soul. I wish I never got rid of her.

An older two stroke motocross bike would be the most challenging to ride. Any moron can park his fat a$$ on a street bike. Clear a 50 foot Double on a motocross bike and then come talk to me about soul and belief in your equipment....

No more two strokes? I love the 300 MXC. No offense but the only soul is the rider. I can find myself enjoying anything on two wheels. I wave at ANYTHING on TWO WHEELS while riding. If they do not wave back I hunt them down, kill them and throw them in a ditch! Sure two strokes are great but the left says they smoke too much! Put the same energy and $$into a 2 stroke and you will find they work and function much better! Thanks Steve I needed that!

OMG..what in the world does Orange County Choppers have to with Harley Davidson?

I was simply stating the popularity of the show has influenced the marketability of HD and Custom V-twin rattlers in general. I am in the motorcycle business at least part-time and I see these posers all the time. They have an HD but they pray all the lights will be green because they really can't find neutral.

These bike are really heavy, handle like sh*it and do not much more than make a bunch of noise. Yes I have ridden them and no I am not at all impressed. A BMW (pick any) or Ducati would be my choice, hands down. Don't flame me because I do not like HD's. It's my opinion only.

Mag- it was AMF and they were just about the worst thing that could have possibly happened to H-D. Just a bunch of number crunchers who didn't give a rat's azz about the quality issues they caused by cutting costs and then sending bad parts out one door as scrap and in another door as parts needing the next operation. My dad worked for H-D in those days and it was a continuous string of horror stories. There was no pride in workmanship because of this and it got to the point that AMF was about a week away from selling the company off, piece-by-piece and machine-by-machine. They were still using machines from WWII to make parts in the late '70s and early '80s, yet they had a warehouse with new machines ten years after the machines arrived. They never did use them- they just sold them off at a discount.

A guy I went to school with is a forensic engineer for H-D and he is constantly going to court for them against people who sue for all kinds of BS reasons.

AndyG could add some other insight here, too.

Hoosier Bob

Most of the oil leak problems you hear about were by design. The drive chain was lubricated with the case oil and would always leak. It was supposed to leak. Those old Harley's rode hard and went to bed wet. I believe most went away with the addition of the belt drive. I personally would like them to stay traditional with the Air Cooling just not so much displacement. Keep working on reliability. The new breed Harley Rider spends $10K to get it where it runs like a beast and then dumps because it is unreliable. If I had one it would be stock with dress up only. They look awesome and reliability is down more from (I believe) the hop ups not the design or quality. 13-14 seconds is plenty fast and if you want faster we know one alternative or go get a Busa.

No, but there is a custom cycle shop just up the road from the HD (and Malibu) dealer, across from Brainerd International Raceway (BIG racing venue) called American Hardcore Customs (http://americanhardcorecustoms.com/index.html) that builds (assembles, actually - no custom fabrication) S&S-powered choppers.

Some H-D dealers do carry a line of choppers. A friend that just moved here bought one from the Harley dealer when he lived in upstate New York - a Big Dog (http://www.bdm.com/) K-9.

http://www.pbase.com/gujers/image/57842312.jpg

It's a nice looking bike and appears to be well-made, and that S&S stroker and tranny are a very nice piece of work. TONS of power, but I've ridden that bike a lot, and I'm tellin' you that I'd NEVER own one, especially for $36 large. I've been riding motorcycles most of my life and that bike with that rake has NO appeal for me from a handling standpoint.

I'm still confused by the people who biatch that a big Harley isn't quick. It isn't designed to be, it's a touring bike. The basic V-Twin design is old, granted, but it is torquey. At idle, it's very lumpy but that's part of the nature of the beast. The flywheel is around 15#, IIRC. It would be a lot smoother if the pistons were horizontally opposed but we wouldn't be having this conversation if they were, either.

Personally, the bikes on OCC are pretty gimmicky, although they do some interesting things. I just got really tired of all the ragging and BS, just like on American Hot Rod. Biker Build-off has some very interesting stuff going on, like the two bikes by Billy Zane that had fires (one was from a leaking gas tank and the other was from the exhaust exiting under the seat with only one layer of sheet metal between the pad and the heat). I think the bikes by Russell Mitchell at Exile are some of the cleanest looking ones I have seen. Definitely more European design points.

For those who want to buy from an American corporation, there's always Beull and Ducati- both are owned by H-D.

It would be a lot smoother if the pistons were horizontally opposed but we wouldn't be having this conversation if they were, either.



The lumpiness of the HD V-twin is based on their design of putting both rods on a common crank pin. Certainly they could do it another way, but then it wouldn't be a Harley. Interestingly, the Honda Shadow came out as a Harley-killer - their entry into the V-twin cruiser market. It was smooth as silk, and nobody bought it. The next year they brought out the Honda Shadow ACE (American Classic Edition), which was the same bike with both rods on a common crank pin. It's lumpy and rumbly, and THAT model sells very well.

When Harley introduced the Twin Cam 88, they left the common crank pin, but counterbalanced the crankshaft on the (solid-mounted) Softails. That really smoothed it out on my 2003 Heritage compared to my 1996 Heritage. It's nice, I guess, but I never minded the vibration in the 20K miles I put on that Evo-powered bike.

I watch all of the V-Twin shows on Speed and Discovery/A & E. Very cool to watch but don't know that I would trust the Billy Lane edition anywhere but in my garage.:D I will own a Harley at some point but for the same reason I purchased the Honda Valkyrie. It is very different and a dream to ride. Maybe an XR1000 79 I think? Late 60's Duoglide? I have my dreams but will be a solo seat no matter what Harley hits the garage. Don't care how fast my Harley will be just cruisin'. No WFT on the V-Rod If fast is what you want go V-65, V-Max or an old GS1100, ZR series or even my dream a 1979 CBX! My buddy has a V-Rod with the fat tire kit. Nice ride but to me looks funny with rider. Some of the finish is a little odd as well. Nothing that could not be worked out though but to me not what I want from Harley. Can you say Porsche on that re-redesign BigMac?:D How about everyone posts some pics of those bad arse Harley's and shuts up! I would like to see yours again BM solo setup of course!
PS I am sure not many if any Valk owners here but how about them Wings? Pics please!

As an EX-Harley employee all I will stay out of the debate over different rides, quality and why people like certain bikes more than others, but I do have pictures.

This picture should fit well with the TMC site. Yes it is a Geezer Glide. Granted it is a little hopped up. I have a 150 watt amp in the front fairing driving my speakers for my CD player and my ipod that is hooked up to it so I can hear the tunes at 80 MPH on the highway. Starting with my stock 103 cu in (1690 cc) engine I added a set of HTCC CNC ported heads, HTCC Forged Pistons bumping the compression ratio from 8.5 to 10.5 and also a set of midrange cams. Now it is one of the fastest Geezer Glides on the road.

Sorry you said Greek? I hope you are not calling Sporty's chic bikes as they are a very affordable, efficient and yes reliable ride. Actually perform much better than given credit. If I would there are a few sports that I would love to destroy! Anything Orange and Black that looks like an old XR1000!Yes I do!!!!! But I am a Computer Greek, don't spend enough time on it to figure it out.

I have what most would call the "Chick Bike". But I took it on a 9000 km. ride a couple of years ago and not a complaint at all. Camping, motels when we could and the rest of the time............rryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyde!!!

I see the wrap, what else have you done to her? Nice NT by the way RM. I don't modify too much but if your wrappin' you either are going for the totally blacked out look or some stages have been applied.;)
Nice stinger as well always looks cool on the FXS Injection?
Wrap is to keep pants from burnin in traffic, cereamic coated pipes no baffles, torque cones, stage one kit, air intake, remapped FI etc, actually thinking of taking off the wrap/making heat shields in black when I get back home. Front wheel is to be coated this winter (cross will be black)

Sorry I missed this one. Black will be cool but if someone could also accent the cross in Harley orange or red (I like the red on the NT) that would set it off even more. Some billet heat shields in black will be nicer than the wrap but the wrap looks good and yes helps move air. Regardless cool ride to play with.Wrap is to keep pants from burnin in traffic, cereamic coated pipes no baffles, torque cones, stage one kit, air intake, remapped FI etc, actually thinking of taking off the wrap/making heat shields in black when I get back home.

Wicked looking bike HB. I don't know why, but that pic makes me think of the Millenium Falcon! :) Does anybody else see that?

Here is my previous ride.

Andy, do I recall you posted a picture awhile ago of this bike that looked like it was sitting on a concrete patio or the like?

Still waiting on the Hondas! I may be all there is!:oMore than likely the case....You did say you prefer being solo....So in other words, LISA rides alone too....

I think that was the first picture of that bike that I ever posted on this site. But then again I can't remember what I did last week let alone 4 months ago.

Andy- was the shot of the 2002 taken at Uke's?

Good eye. Yes it was. I was picking it up after Uke's repaired the $10,000 in damage that I did to it. I was rear ended on I-94 out by the old smiley barn in Delafield.

I like the solo look too. Here's a newer pic of my FatBoy with solo seat and new pipes and a few other chrome odds and ends.

I didn't mean for this to become a "Show your bike" thread, but this is cool :) Great bikes guys!
Let's just say that model is "under consideration"........ I am diggin' the 50cal. holes....:D
