We had a Harley once. It was a 1976 Sportster, Iron head, 999 cc, rigid frame, kick start, LOUD, piece of s**t!
Don't get me wrong, it was pretty to look at, but it was literally a pain in the butt!
We bought it for $3500, put $15,000 in it, then sold it for $4500.
It definitely lived up to the old saying, "ride it a mile, push it the rest".
We now have a 2005 Honda VTX 1800R. We LOVE it! Turn a key, push a button, and go! Never any issues. Just fun!
If I can EVER figure out how to put a pic in a post, I'll post up some pics.
