The last one looks like it could handle bumps a lot better!

That's a pretty skimpy rotor on the front wheel, but I doubt it is ridden much further than the trailer.

Comfy looking Indian.

Seems Harley is on tough times. The younger folks are not taking to motorcycles the way previous generations have.

Yes they are but not in the normal way.

Virtual reality is killing the bike market.

PLUS it is hard to text and ride. crazy

I agree, the top one is perhaps more for show than riding? Kind of like those cars called low riders or whatever? The bike looks cool but not sure how well it would ride on normal roads.

The last one, is so nice...THAT is what I feel is a proper bike

as for newer generations and bikes...I see more of the crotch rocket sorts than the Harley sorts. Not sure why, cheaper? more speed for the need?

Not to go off topic, but I see more idiots on the rockets that rev it up and weave in and out these days.

The hog types prefer to cruise and be heard....emphasis on being heard, but again, both types are heard....one is a low rumbling drone that seems to shake the ground and the other is like a pesky insect that whines and makes your ears bleed....

Still, one of my favorite movies is...

The Fastest Indian


one of the worst movies...biker boyz
