NEW BIKE!

Last night I traded in my Trusty old Vulcan for a new(er) Suzuki Boulevard

Old and busted

Motorcycles are rad, but you couldn't pay me to ride one.

But Kenzo, they are the epitome of safety. Who needs roll cages when you can reach the same speeds without one?

Always Japanese bikes. I've had like 6, maybe 7 bikes since about 2000 and all of them Japanese, couple of kawas, a honda and 3 or 4 yamahas. They just know how to make good small engines.

Harleys you pay like 4x as much for the same hardware just because yuppie weekend warriors want them.

Here I was under the impression that you were an American. How mistaken I was.

I can respect someone buying an American car over a foreign one because you at least get SOMETHING - a better price in that trade off. But if you're buying a Harley - and that's the only American one left - you're getting a shittier bike AND paying more for it. By all counts, Harley's are worse bikes by almost every single measurement. So why pay more because some retired, wannabe gangsters will throw away all their money chasing a superficial and outdated image of manliness?

Citation needed. Do you even recognize how stupid the shit is when you type it sometimes?

For once I actually agree with Kenzo. While he's being a bit hyperbolic I certainly agree there isn't a good reason to go with a harley for the money. They're just a status symbol, the iPhone of motorcycles.

You obvs don't know who you are talking to. I am the ultimate white supremacist according to the guys I play rocket league with just because I happened to have a clip of Hitler's declaration of war against Poland on the playlist I was playing at everyone one night. So in short Liquid, checkmate.

The difference is I'm joking and (I think) you're being serious when you say something retarded like EVERY ACCOUNT FROM EVERY PERSON EVER TO HAVE AN OPINION ON THE MATTER thinks that Harleys are worse bikes than a Japanese bike in every regard.

Cool bike.


When I was growing up my parents would call everything that wasn't a Harley a little toy.

thanks Ex.

Real talk: For something like I bought I would have been paying a good 1.5x or more minimum just for the Harley name. F that.

I mean that's fine if you're buying an AMD CPU to stick in your PC to save some money. Nobody has to look at that. But you're cruising around town on this fucking thing. Now you gotta deal with people seeing you riding a ricerocket instead of good old fashioned American muscle. A little embarrassing in my opinion. Should be illegal to even sell those things here. You're putting Americans out of work.

I think that's pretty good proof that I don't care about aesthetics, and also something I wouldn't have been caught dead doing in HS, but hey, whatever gets you to sleep at night.

I think your bike is rad as fuck, Beowulf. Let the haters hate.

I don't think kenzo realizes the amount of Harley pride that exists in Milwaukee.
