No desire whatsoever to have an electric automobile. Sad to say, Harley Davidson is now making electric motorcycles. Without the Harley sound I don't see how one could be called a Harley.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Heard the sound described as "Potato, potato, potato, potato"

...YUP...that would be it...if it's carburated. If it's fuel injected, it's more like instant potato.

You should hear an old Knucklehead or Panhead...SWEET MUSIC...! ! !

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Our Motorcycle club in Texas goes out to honor Vets. Before starting out the guy IN charge give a talk about safety and such then says as we approach the veterans location, everyone should gun their motors. You guys on Hondas, play your radios real loud.

I hear that Harley is outsourcing their engines to an Indian company. Luckily you can tell by the engine sound where it came from as heard in this clip:

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

CC, might be about my Ford Ecosport. Engine is made in Germany, tranny made in Mexico and the car is assembled in India.
