Default Harley vs. Honda

Not sure if this has been posted before. It is a very objective comparison between the two bikes.

Very interesting......Moto Guzzi is what I ride. I've never been cool enough for a Harley.

Not what I was expecting either. I thought I might see the Harley towing a trailer containing a complete set of spares with a mechanic sitting on top.

Works both ways.

I aint never seen a BMW bike on a trailer

wish i'd bought...yamaha 2 cyl 2 stroke 400cc british racing green!!! Anybody who rode one knows why

and test drive A LOT, hey to me they are all FUN! Even the crotch rockets

Most any bike is great if you buy for reasons in your HEART and not who you will impress

Thats because after the price of the bike they cant afford a trailer.


In all seriousness, a guy at work has a touring bmw that is one nice damn machine. I never payed the bmw any attention til he got his and I have to say I am impressed.

Harley...ONLY Harley...to be specific...2003 Aniv model FatBoy. NOW, with that said, when it comes to the boat, I want the quiet sound of the Suzuki 140 four stroke.

What do Hondas and hound dogs have in common???

They both like riding in the back of the truck....

Why do most Harleys seem to be towed/hauled ?

Why is it important to take mufflers off Harleys?

Of the Harleys NOT towed/hauled, why do they only ride in large groups in the left hand lane at exactly 54 mph?

Is it really hard to accelerate in a Harley? They often choke down upon a light changing to green? Whazzz up?

Why is there a ritual when dismounting a Harley? Why not simply get off?

Why is there a "white trash" dress code for Harley people?

Must one be over 50, fat, bald/white haired, un-shaven, and have a fat, over 50 bald/un-shaven, floppy chested girlfriend (who happens to look really pizzed off) to ride/own a Harley?

Why are Harleys never entered in a race with other makes of bikes?

What is the difference in a Harley and a Kawasaki?

answer...one sounds like it'll run...the other WILL run
