This is my brother Dave's motorcycle. He wanted a Harley Davidson but the price tag was too big and he said this was a better performer anyway.

A couple of years ago, our daughter became extremely frightened of motorcycles because of this one. My brother made some modifications to this bike to make it sound like a Harley and roar just as loud. He took her outside to see it one day and revved it up really loud and after that, she was scared of all motorcycles. She finally outgrew her fear when she got to ride on one in the Philippines. My son, on the other hand, is very interested in motorcycles and absolutely loves it.

I just remembered a joke that a buddy in the navy told me a few years ago. What does a Harley Davidson and a Hoover vacuum have in common? They both suck and they both carry a dirt bag. Ha ha ha.

Although this may be stereotypically accurate, it's not my sentiment. I happen to like HDs (I like Indians more) but I thought it was pretty funny.

Very nice bike. I hate that men pay for the Harley name. Because that's all that it is a name. Why do they want to ride a name?

I seem to her the lumpy roar of a HD without mufflers in our generally quiet neighborhood. If I could walk and ride, I would prefer a Gold Wing - quiet, elegant and refined. A Harley is crude and rough, but has an image second to none...The Indian was made not too far away from us in Springfield MA. I have to think this was built for a real man with legs of steel to try to kickstart that brute over and over and over!

rev up the red bike,
roar down the adventure road—
you won’t regret it

It is awesome to look at, but I would'nt ride on it. I don't know why I am scared. Maybe I am like rylie. :)

I like it!!! I like it! If you want my opinion, I think the Harleys are way too loud anyway.
