Harleys won't idle . . .

. . . or will they? Ya ever notice that the Harley guys sit at the light and go vroommm! vroommm! vroommm! then go blastin off pipes roarin'? Loud pipes save lifes! Right! My favorite activity these days is pullin' up beside them at a light. Suddenly the voormmm! voormmm! disappears and they eassse away from the light. I love it!

If you never noticed, the reason they dont wave is because they have a wrench or socket in each hand. They cant let go of the bars for fear of dropping there tools.

How do you get parts for you Harley? You follow one around 'til the part you want falls off. I ain't got much room to talk, parts fall off of KLR650s pretty regular.

Why do they put the tassels on the handle bars? To tell when they are moving.
