I'm sure there is no time limit on bringing threads back. Its just pretty humorous is all. From what I can tell, defending your Thunderbirds from the dreaded Harley seems to be the major concern of people on this board.
Its sort of like me owning my 1050 Tiger and someone coming along and saying they hate their Tiger and are going to buy a BMW GS. Ooookay by me. I can see reasons you might do that, even reasons I might do that under the right circumstances. Guess I'm just not invested enough in my choice of bikes to let it get me all tuned up as people seem to do here. But I do enjoy the entertainment.
These threads and some forums are for the ''cycle-hypochondriacs", gives people with too much time on their hands something to worry about. There is nothing wrong with HD's, if there was a serious issue with them their wouldn't be a trillion of them on the road everyday. I like to look at them, I think they have great fit and finish and some of the best accessories you can buy. I'm always trying to figure out how I can adapt some of them to my Bird. Personally I've just never wanted to own an HD, probably because everybody else already does. I like the Victory X-Country a lot, couldn't bring myself to spend the extra money on one over the Bird SE I got cheap. When I get my fairing in a few weeks I'm going to add some HD features to it 'cause nobody knows more about fairing stuff than HD. I've had zero problems with my Bird SE, it's never been back to the dealer since the day I bought it (I do all my own maint). Which may be part of some people's problems with their Birds, their are some unscrupulous dealers and independent shops out there that will do what ever to keep business flowing in times like these. People should take these threads and many others with a grain of salt, people like to complain and defend their own decisions and of course embellish to make points. These forums are entertainment for me, I like to stir a little from time to time just for the fun of it. I have learned a couple of tricks from a couple of guys on the forums and of course guys like mat are priceless with their relevant talents. If a person likes HD's and can afford one, then they should buy it. Nothing worse than buying something you didn't want in the first place and have to live with it.
