Why A Harley Davidson Isn’t A Real American Motorcycle, an article from 1993 from a guy who used to like Harley Davidsons:
I think I’ve finally figured out just *WHY* Harley Davidson motorcycles are so popular… Harley Davidson isn’t a motorcycle company, it is a cult religion. You don’t ride a Harley Davidson so much as you worship it. You and every other little acolyte. A Harley Davidson is a rolling altar to mediocrity, you bend your knees and you pray to a pagan idol of chrome and leather for the pitiful life that you glean from it.
Harley Davidson. It’s not a motorcycle company. It is a pagan cult religion for brain dead trend humping fashion lemmings.
He makes some good points, though I’m indifferent to it; I have no desire to get a Harley. I like my ’78 Honda CB550.
