It's funny, on watching a little of the video think I would have preferred to hear the exhaust sound rather than the song, but if I lived there I'd have certainly preferred not to hear either one.

Jeezus shit tits christ. 100M followers? Don't these people have lives? No wonder this country is going to shit. One chick rides a bike and the whole world loses its shit. What a waste of time, money, and 10 minutes I'll never get back.

Kudos, Katy. Not a fan. (She’s not Lennon and McCartney, but who is theses days?)

It takes more balls than about 95% of people have to even get on a big motorcycle. She got the right training (Lee Parks) and actually rode the thing without looking like too much of a spazz. Well done.

I think the value to Harley could be several million, based on what money big influencers are paid by companies for pushing their products.

Last time I was in Hawaii I rented a BMW F800GT. I doubt I ruined anyone's day: I've heard louder beard trimmers in a barber shop.

But, but, but, it's Katy Perry!

We are seeing much more participation in classes by female riders. If Ms. Perry can attract more youngsters to our sport, good for her!

If you had been able to set aside your anti-Harley bias and actually watched it you would know that she was actually riding not "posing". She has joined the ranks of women celebs like Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer who actually ride and have been heavily promoting motorcycle riding.

My favorite's got to be Dame Evelyn Glennie. An internationally acclaimed percussionist despite being profoundly deaf, over 50, rides an MV Agusta.

And of course she's Scots, because everyone that badass is.

Very much a real Harley. Just as much a real Harley as the Livewire and the e-bikes they are coming out with.
