Mom? If you were in a German Scheisse video, you... you'd tell me, wouldn't you? @ 10:48 am

What's the deal with Harley's? I was just walking outside and a guy on a Harley drove by. Those things are really unnecessarily loud. Why are they so loud? Because the want to stand out. They're screaming, "Notice me!" It's an 85 degree day, you're wearing a black leather jacket, and chaps you don't need a loud motorcycle for me to notice you.

Actually I drive a motorcycle - not a harley - and at first the noise of the Harley is very annoying. However there is a safety factor about the Harley noise. You almost *always* hear a Harley coming. On the quiter motorcycles, like my Virago, people don't always see/hear you and as a result there have been many, many close calls. Frankly if it ment saving my life from some idiot, I'd put up with the headache driving a Harley would give me.

Then again for some it's just a status thing. =)

I think your just having re-occuring, homo-erotic feelings again Scott. Loud sound signifies power, and the Harleys have nice power :) Its a deep low rumble, not like some wussy high pitched tin sound like dirt bikes make.

Exactly... they have to show off "the power" ooooh aahhhhhh. They must be compensating for something.

Sounds to me like someone has a small (you know) and is trying to compensate.

Funny, you have an opinion on just about everything. Loud is good, excessively loud is just stupid. My car has a deep throat rumble, just enough to know what I got under the hood, but it's not flaunting it loud to shake the screws loose on everything I pass. I think there's a balance between feeling the power and flaunting the power.

I agree... Harley's are flaunting the power.
