Draglinkscc said:I say we cut Cali OFF!!! thats right they are nothing but trouble and YES it all starts there. you west coast dudes have been bragging for ever about how it all started in cali....well now youve gone and done it....Lets get the jackhammers out and finally do what should have been done forever ago...CUT THEM OFF!!
Tim, check out the "spool hub question" topic..from post # 7 to 16, there is something said about German and Belgian motorcycle laws..the Swedes got always pre 1970 or so paperwork on their choppers,then they are almost free as it comes to certain restrictions...But then again, if in some country's you have to show your bike at an inspection station on a yearly base..builders just take their second "stock" bike to show...got the point?..Pure Hell said:I'll take that Cali bashing ... Last in house job I had, out of 30 people 2 of us were born in the state ... The large percentage were from Ohio ... This state us to be cool .... I think it's them dam mid west values screwing up the place .... I'm blaming Ohio for this !!! ..... HA, HA ......
Kit cars are gay anyway, who cares?rev616 said:i love how they are picking on bikes..what about kit cars?
have you seen the new dynas? automatic primary chain tensioners with no inspection covers.just the derby.im sure they will do away with that soonol_scratch said:Hey just wait till the 2008 Harley's come out. Plan is no standard fasteners used on bikes. No hex heads, no allen heads, slotted, torx, nothing. Everything requires special Harley tools.
And people wonder why we say FTF.Scorcher said:They did with Flattrack racing!!!! In the late 80's early 90's, the Hondas were killing them. Harley got themselves into it, and made "RULES" that once again put Honda's down, then Honda bailed and its dominated by Harleys again.
I can imagine whats really going on nowadays.....
i bet you thats part of it! HARLEY! they have money up the ass so they can do what they want. for instance, "work" with the government.Ed said:And people wonder why we say FTF.
That looks like occ's latest buildCapt. Cal said:
i pulled this from the archives. i can see things heading towards this...
And now they have a "custom vehicle operations". AKA, more chrome, a few more HPs, bla wheels, and such for only $10,000 more.Capt. Cal said:i bet you thats part of it! HARLEY! they have money up the ass so they can do what they want. for instance, "work" with the government.
i can see nowadays with custom bikes and kit bikes etc, that harley's sales could be dropping. not many people are buying the bone-stock-everyone-has-harley. everyone wants a one-off custom. and for many, it's easier to open their pocket and buy a custom bike. rather then building one themselves, possibly from an off-the-shelf bike. so i think harley is at it again. instead of attacking the jap bike companys, (which they have done many times in the past), this time they're directly targeting us. so yes FTF.
