    We can only imagine what a trapgun made by Honda would be like...super reliable with too many whistles and bells.

    Over the years I owned many Hondas including several Goldwings. I have never been happier since switching to HD

    Willie G. was a genius. He turned on the wannabe gene in thousands of yuppies with disposable income.

    The upside was they had to make the product better so that manual literacy was not required for ownership.

    Years ago when I rode Hondas, the Harleys could not leave home without rags and wrenchs. Not so today. I have put 43,000 miles on mine in three years and have switched tires and changed oil and plugs.

    Cute! I bought a valkyrie in 04. Its the best motorcycle I have ever owned(35). I go to flordia twice a year and rent a harley each time. They have some nice bikes but I think you pay 10k for the bike and 10k to be in the club.

    I have had them both-currently have a H.D. Electra Glide-Great bike--no issues.They are both well over priced as the Gold Wing is around $20k.The H.D. I purchased in 2000 for my 50th birthday present and have never had any problems.I see plenty of metric bikes both here and in FL.(MA).--They are all good machines!!

    Although the link is hilarious it is not realy fair to Honda as they do not make 2 strokes.

    Harleys,Honda, Suzuki,Kawasaki,Yamaha,KTM,Maico,Husqvarna,Montesa,Penton. Road, I'll stick with the HD way too easy to get carried away (speedwise on the Honda)

    Dirt give me back my Maico or my 430 Husky. All in all though they were and are good bikes.

    Cute, false sound effect on that site. Each to his own but for me, the sound doesn't count for anything if there's not much to back it up; a motorcycle must be able to out handle and out accellerate the soccer mom's minivan.

    Truth is, talking actual power, there isn't an HD made, except possibly the V Rod, that can keep up to my wife's 2004 GL1800A Wing. They can't compete with that big horzontal opposed six cylinder engine.

    The Wing can't keep up to my Yamaha FJR1300 Sport Tourer.

    While were looking at web sites, I've added one, for everyone's enjoyment that I found a a while back.

    "small tank"?? You must have had a Sportster. Get a grown up Harley.

    Listen, I never disparage another's motorcycle...I'm just glad they share the same enthusiasm for riding that I have. I did own Jap bikes in the very early 70's and yes, the AMC Harleys were flaming pieces of mechnical feces.

    Hasn't been that way for years.

    Nonetheless, its still a matter of what it is you are looking for. The guy who buys an Accura NSX (or a Porsche as an other example) is probably not looking for the same thing as the guy who buys a reconditioned 500 hp blown and gassed Mustang Shelby. Me...I like that my current bike, bought new..an '89 Softail...is not completely refined...I like the feel of shifting steel...hell, I like old 60's English sports cars for that matter (MG A....would love to have another).

    Enjoy the road and keep the dirty side down.
