    Ha, thats pretty awesome. Love watching the dude create the 0 in 110. Burnout street art, has a new art style been born?

    There’s haters for every brand. Congrats on 110 H-D!

    Hey Fred, the popularity of Harley-Davidson motorcycles in just about every country on the entire planet suggests that you are talking out of the back of your neck, along with dissing every afficionado and the millions of serious riders who do the big miles.

    Except for running outta beer and that “Elton thing” Harley knows how to throw a party. To be fair, Honda DID hand out keychains at the OH factory to celebrate the company’s 50th……

    Fred, Have you ever heard of a V-rod??? Apparently not. It’s been taking the drag championship just about every year.

    I’m holding out for the 112.5 year anniversary. That one will be epic!

    Bob – nah, that’s not haten’. In fact, I was thinking of which hd I would pick up for my wife & I to ride this morning before reading this post. It’s just pokin fun at corp sponsored burnouts in light of their entire catalog.

    Burnouts are stupid and ghey.

    BadMonkey: I’m with ya on that.

    Ever walk into a dealer and notice the “hangarounds” are “dealer branded”? Different crowd from the custom and vintage garage crowd….and thats OK, just a different group of peeps. Burnouts to them are impressive…….

    I will say this :: Over the Holidays went “home” for the holidays and rented a Street Glide from the local dealer. Living in LA and owning a 63 Pan and SPCN 113ci stroked longbike, I’m used to runs and rides that always have some instance involved. In this case, riding a 2013 bike with a 103 / 6 speed with bags was a joy. I concluded after 100mph blasts through the Everglades that Harley has the new bike thing pretty dialed. Stable, responsive and predictable come to mind. Not that I plan on incorporating the factory’s marketing stereotypes into my repertoire, I can say having a dealer bike is becoming more appealing.

    @Doc Robinson – wrong ’em boyo. My comment states nothing about popularity.

    No problems Fred, I didn’t mean to imply that you did. And now that you’ve pointed it out, when I look at the annual sales of the Motor Company world-wide each year I am absolutely astounded at how many posers there must be on the planet. BTW read badams second paragraph for an unbiased viewpoint from an experienced biker.

    110= 110% lame.

    That being said:

    If you build it, they will come…credit cards in hand to buy all the stupid unlimited “limited edition” pieces parts, trinkets, and chrome festoonery.


    “HD, the pied piper of doo-rags and chaps”

    Can’t wait for the 111th anniversary.

    Be kind to Fred and Johnny cut is clear both have suffered rectal-cranial inversions. Muffled speech is a sure sign.
