ITS SO MUCH FUN TO READ ALL THE BILLY BAD ASS COMMENTS ABOUT WHAT BIKE IS THE BEST..EVO,SHOVEL,PAN.,,,,

**I think most of it is done in fun, then again some can't see the humor because they have a complex about riding just another cookie cutter factory ride..........hard to distinguish in a crowded parking lot of bikes.........

HELL KIDS THEY ARE ALL THE SAME... FUCKIN MONEY PITS !

**Can't argue that point but my Shovel has been pretty easy on the wallet over the last 26 plus years........

I'VE RODE ALL THAT HARLEY HAS OFFERED FOR 30 YEARS...THEY ALL GOT PROBLEMS AND ALL BREAK... HOW MANY HAVE 50 THOU. DEALER COST IN A FLATSIDE SHOVEL?? I DID AND YES IT WAS FAST...BUT IT ALSO WENT TO A NEWBE TO RIDE AFTER I BROKE MY BACK AND COULDNT KICK IT ANYMORE..

**I personally wouldn't put 50K into anything on two wheels but that's just me...........Sorry about your back but at least you sold it to someone that can ride it and it's not gathering dust in the garage as a lot of people do with their older bikes when they go new.

.NOW I GOT MY FIRST BUTTON START EVO... TOOK 20 YEARS TO GET ME OFF OLD IRON.. IN 1984 I WAS ON A PAN. EVOS WERE NO.NOS THEN AND STAYED THAT WAY FOR ALL OF THOSE 20 YEARS...NOW THIS NEW FANGLED EVO IS UNDER MY OLD ASS AND YA KNOW WHAT? I SHOULD OF GOT ONE 20 YEARS AGO! IT WILL GO WHEN I WANT AND WHERE I WANT...AND HOME AGAIN.

**Funny in 26 years my Shovel has gotten me home except for two times. That's not bad in my opinion. As of yet I have no use for a button, hopefully that day doesn't come. The fact that you choose to go with Evo and not a twincam is a mystery. I mean if the new fangled stuff is so great why not take the plunge and buy the latest?

HOW MANY OF YOU DIE HARD SHOVEL OWNERS HAVE EVER OWNED A KNUCK OR A FLATIE?? WHY NOT? BECAUSE YOU GREW UP WHEN SHOVELS WERE BEING BUILT THATS WHY. HOW MANY OF YOU STILL DRIVE A 68 CAR OR TRUCK DAILY? HEY YOU ARE DIE HARDS... GO GET A 75 DODGE AND KEEP IT AND BRAG ABOUT HOW GREAT IT IS..

**Don't know what part of the world you live in but I see ol' cars and trucks all over the place. Parts are there, no smog crap to deal with, hell some very sweet old rides out here, two and four wheel. Got a '65 stepside myself in the process of being rebuilt along with a '85 Mazda RX7. Try to keep one of those rotary motors on the road then come here and talk........both great rides btw. As for a 75 Dodge, why the hell would anyone want one? Maybe Al Bundy????????? **just messing with you dude, it's only humor............

GET OFF THE SOAPDISH... YOU PISS ON EVOS BECAUSE YOU CANT AFFORD TO BUY A EVO OR TWIN CAM.... I WAS OLD SCHOOL BEFORE MOST OF YOU WERE BORN AND I MOVED MY LIFE TO THE 21ST. CENTURY AND ITS BETTER...AND AS FOR THE LITTLE CHICKYS THAT ARE RUNNIN OFF AT THE TEETH ABOUT SHIT THEY HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT,,,PUT THE PETER WHERE YER YAPPIN AT...SAME AS THE OLD DAYS OF SHOVELS...SUCK NOT TALK...

**Jesus I've heard this song and dance so many times over the years............Fact is most choose to ride older bikes because they like them, to say nothing they're easy to pick out of a crowd. It's not a big deal to go plunk down some money for a new ride if that is what you want to do, I did it at one time and been happy with it every since, back in the days when people were counting Harley out. Now that it's the latest fashion statement for anyone with a bug up their ass and been watching too many grade b biker movies there's a ton of riders out there on NEW Harleys I don't want anything to do with nor ever have the wish to become part of. To each their own, I like my Shovel, have seen nothing new in the Harley lineup that turns me on and until I do I'll just keep riding what I have which by the way keeps up just fine with the new fangled Evo's and Twinkies but like I said at the top...........most bragging is done in humor. I really don't think anyone that has been chasing wind for long really gives a rats ass what other people ride. Twinkies, Evos, Shovels, imports.............who gives a fuck, just ride and keep some humor in your life. Anything else is a waste..............
