sy0296, do you ride a Harley (I do), do you know why 90+% of Harley owners buy Harley's, it's because they are perceived to be an American Brand, have you ever stood around a fire with 20 other guys and burned a Honda? (I have), Known anyone with a patch that says "better a sister in a whore house than a brother on a rice burner" and he meant it, I have. Ever been in a fight at 3AM in a camp at Sturgis over someone on a riceburner, I was in '87. Why do you think that over half of the HD riders out there won't wave at you on a freaking Triumph forcrissakes, because they have it in their heads that they are better than any damned riceburner.
If HD was owned by Honda people would be out with belt sanders taking decals off their trucks. Bet on it.
Your free to have your opinion, but I'd bet huge money you're wrong.
