LOL Harley

Article about Harley, with Harley in headline, has no pix of Harley's in it. THAT is Harley's future: a future without Harleys as we know them.

This one at least has a Harley IN it.

Still, looks like HD is ABB - Anything But Bikes.

Still - a HUD on your detachable windshield? Fuck YOU Harley.

I think it's more of a piece that highlights what others are doing that maybe HD should think about too.

It's not an article about Harley at all.

Headline: "Not Your Father's Harley: How the Motorcycle Industry is Attracting New Riders"

The last 8 words are what the article is about, not HD.

Then it should have said “Not your father”s bike” or similar, why include that brand?

whatever. i see a bar-n-shield and the WEATHER projected on that windshield. (aside: you need a fucking WEATHER app to tell you its warm and sunny out? YOU ARE RIDING! ) who cares what the temperature is. you either need another layer because you're chilly, or to remove a layer because you're warm, or you're alright, temperature-wise. Aint ya? fucking data. i need an app to tell me when to eat, and i want Yelp on my helmet HUD so I get The Best Hamburger possible. sad.

It just bugs you because it has forward controls, lol. 114 cubic inches of jet fighter thrust! Aluminum subframe and swingarm! Composite rear fender, lightweight wheels dry weight of 637 lbs!! Inverted cartridge forks with 300mm dual disc with 4 piston calipers, standad abs. 119lbs of torque!!!!! All the trick bits you Harley haters have been yapping about. I like the direction the motor company is headed

Certainly a good step out of Harley's proverbial box, but I'd not say that 637 lbs dry and an engine that still has trouble making 100 HP is something that Harley haters have been clamoring for. I really love any size, shape and type of bike, but calling that thing's capabilities "jet fighter thrust" is nothing short of funny.
