You say that now because you're not there yet. This is like deja vu for me, with all this type of talk. Your perspective will likely change as you get progressively older and wiser.

I go to Sturgis every year but this one, my father raised me on harley's

first time I ever went to the hospital was because I burned my leg on his exhaust pipe, he rode me to and from the hospital on that bike.

In my 20 years I have never not been around a harley, my father is 51 years old and has owned a harley for 37 years of his life ...

i know a bit, and it was a joke about the reliability .. btw

lol yeah because a ****ing helmet is gonna protect your spine.

like my dad said, its not like riding with a helmet on makes motorcycle riding safe. it just prevents head injuries. 83% of fatalities that ocurred without a helmet, the rider would have died anyway.
so, IMO, you should be allowed to KNOW the risks and chose accordingly, its not like it hurts anyone but yourself. thats why TX adopts the MSF rule... MSF teaches you that you should ride with a helmet so that you can ignore them and ride without it.

Ill step in and give my 2 cents...

50% of the harley riders i have known say thaey have NO out of the ordinary problems...

then again, they other 50% leak oil, break down... etc just like the stigma suggests... so, I unno.

The drag races at angleton a few weeks back backs this up... almost ALL harley bikes(there was alot of em) had some type of problem on the track( 12 were kicked off the track for leaking oil, 50% of them didnt run right as they made passes down the track...one or 2 broke down, and the remianing few made decent passes...

NOT ONE bike had issues.
