A little off topic here but I'm just curious why you guys feel you need a Harley? Have you ever ridden one?? I've ridden one of the smaller ones 800something? and a big Soft tail and I was very unimpressed. They cost a small fortune, vibrate something awful, typically lack braking power, acceleration is only ok, and they don't handle worth a crap. For my dollar I want a bike that handles a razor edge, brakes on a dime, and accelerates like an F-22. If I want to sit back and relax, I'll drive a European luxury car with a nice stereo and plenty of steel around me to keep the crazies at bay. Different stokes for different folks I guess, it's what makes the world go round. BTW, I forget what the percentage is, but most of the Harley's components are made overseas :0
