harleys everywhere

been seeing a lot of harleys on the road lately. Read somewhere their sales have skyrocketed and its mostly cashed up middleaged men buying. Not bad bikes but I don't understand why they remove or modify their exhausts to make them sound the way they do. Nice bikes to look at but not to listen to.

Its the quality of sound and not the quantity :-D that matters....

the sound a triple engine makes on the way to the redline.....spine tingling and hair raising.

or a modified ZX9R

I have a few buddies that ride them and they fit this mold.
Harley guys IMO are the ones who also drive around in F250's and F350 and don't even own a boat to tow or use the truck for work other than driving to a cubicle or construction site to jump into a real work truck.

They pony up large dollars for an image, most know their bikes are tanks and they don't care.
Making them loud just helps draw attention to the over priced chrome job they are going to park in front of the local bar.

I've road Harleys, they are what they are---- always in the way on the twisties!!!!
