    John, that Thruxton is one I've been wanting. Saw one on the street in NYC with a custom fairing. Game over.

    I got into Guzzis via a 60s BMW. Which so thoroughly charmed, got me curious about the 90 degree horizontally opposed design. First try was an abused Ambassador from the early 70s ... engine blew while I was on it. Second try was the '84 LM III which I miss to this day. Traded that years later for a '97 sporti, another intensely charismatic ride. Guzzis have soul!

    Say what you want but there is no sound equal to a carbureted Harley with Vance and Hines Big Radius pipes.

    Harley M-50. My younger brother had an M-50 Sport in '66 or '67. I think they were only 3.5 hp. Three-speed tranny, rotating shifter on the left bar. Pull in the clutch, and rotate the grip to shift it. I think they were great little Italian two-strokes, and are exceptionally rare these days, at least an example in good condition.

    Meh, experts have been predicting the demise of Harley for over 100 years.

    And the fact that the Motor Company keeps rollin along just irritates the heck out of some folks.

    Don't underestimate the brand- a Harley is the dream of most bikers worldwide.

    In many countries, the taxes can easily double the price that we are used to seeing. Not just trade duties, but internal VAT and so-called, luxury taxation so the country gets as much as it can out of a luxury item. That is a real problem that isn't discussed much when it comes to "made-in-America" and companies looking at alternatives on where to manufacture or assemble.

    Well, there's a dirtbag on it and it's not a Hoover so it must be a Harley.

    Or the river. I think it's amphibious and there's dwarves inside.
