    Jap for dirt, I won’t ride on the street but if I did it would be a KTM dual purpose enduro! Cheers

    A little slice of funny from work....

    My boss was once trying to sell one of his Harley's. A young, skinny hispanic guy was looking at it during his lunch break for fun and my boss said "you know you like it! Buy it from me!" The young guy laughed and said "What would I want with a Harley? I'm not an old fat white guy with a beard." LMFAO! I had tears in my eyes. Guess you had to be there, but the look on my boss' face was priceless (of course my boss fits the description to a tee). Still trying to get the sale, my boss asked him what he meant and he simply told him (in broken English) "well tink about it mang, whachu you mostly see riding Harley's? Yeah, old fat white guys with beards." Obviously they're not the only enthusiasts...but you get where he was coming from.

    Had both, LOl when you ride a Jap bike 55 is the starting point and the bikes are kinda uncomfortable below 55, on a Harley 55 is when you want to slow down.........

    Definitely NOT harleys

    Japs, bimmers, mopeds, whatever... but not those silly, bulky, slow, and loud monstrosities

    I like both. I imagine it would be more than I could handle to ride from California to Texas on a Ninja 300:agreed:. And those Harley floorboards can drag like crazy when ya get in the twisty's:applause:(still kinda fun tho). Like guitars, depends on the application. IMG_0048_LI (2).jpg IMG_0765.jpg

    I'm Not fat, I don't have a beard. Ride a Harley. I will agree that My ass is to old for a crotch rocket.

    Here's my take
    If I want to spend all my time working on it to get somewhere I'd get a Harley.
    I'm tired of working on shit to keep it running.

    I've always said if you want to get there get a Honda.

    Harley makes beautiful bikes but the price isn't worth the reliability issues
