In the Town of Port Jefferson there is a parking lot that has stalls marked for motorcycle only parking. There are a few picnic tables and benches in this area to allow people to sit and hangout. When the weather is nice the lot attracts many motorcycles.
A few months ago I snapped a picture of one of the benches on which someone wrote “Harly’s [sic] Suck.”
Do we need to talk about the murder of grammar and spelling here? If you’re going to try to insult someone, I think you should probably try to get your shit straight.
While in town yesterday, I saw that another bench has been marked up, this time with “Harly < BMX.”
Again, poor spelling but I have to give them an ‘A’ for consistency.
It got me to thinkin’~
What is it about Harley-Davidson that is so polarizing?
Harley-Davidson seems to be one motorcycle brand that many people are very vocal about their love or dislike of.
There are the die-hard brand loyalists who buy and proudly wear their branded gear, bandannas, t-shirts from dealers afar. Some riders get tattoos of the company logo, have stickers on their cars or trucks and seem to see Harley-Davidson as a facet of the American dream.
And then there are the people who are pretty vocal about hating everything HD stating reasons such as – outdated technology, poor performance and peddling a lifestyle above all else.
I cannot think of another brand of motorcycles that divides people so clearly. But why?
