I dont think any of these Harley knockoffs are giving the MoCo any real competition to speak of .. I think they all look cheep and silly .. Mostly cheep .. But ya know any Harley , even the Sportster which I despise , has soul ..
Ya either understand or ya dont ..
I hadda guy tell me he gave up on Harley when they went to the EVO and belt drive .. Well the belt is less maintenance than the chain , and much less maintenance than his shaft drive Suzuki that looks like a water buffalo .. Well they did have that humugous water cooled thing back inna '70's everybody dubbed a water buffalo , and it is the only thing I cud think of to call it ..
They cater to those who dont want a Harley or cant afford a Harley , and they tell everybody "looks like a Harley" ..
I dont even give 'em a second look , dont give 'em a first look if I can help it ..
Nah I aint pregidous , I wanna Ducati MultiStrada ..
Ah now I feel sooo much better ...
