Tbirdrider, I see you now share the lime light, with your pal Kink. I`ve got a good chuckle out of all of this. You Brits with your dry humor, simply amazing at times how you guys over there can just rifle them off at the woman. Spending some time in GB, I understand you guys a little more, and your humor. Then again "we" do ride the identical machine. So you cant be all that bad!!lol... Good on you mate on my pops rebuild, of the Enffy. When I kicked it over, his eye`s lit up with joy. It was a proud moment for me, I have to say.. Stopthemadness has questioned the HP of our rides, I only hope I can clear up the matter. Stock Thunderbird Sport, has 83 horsepower. The Tripledouble bike has 101hp due to creative jetting of the triple carbs,cam timing, and straight pipes.(dyno`d) I believe even for the hungriest maneater, 83hp is a bit to much power transfer to a sex toy. Although I can probably draft up a design, I'm going to turn down the challenge..lol TBR, STM, you boys play nice now in the sandbox, sooner or later Transalp89 will make a choice between you guys..But I guess, all is fair in love and war...lol!!!!

WHAT TREE DID YOU FALL OUT OF? I've been riding HARLEY's for 35 years, AND won't get on anything but a HARLEY. I hope the concussion feels better.

Cheers Maneater! Based on your post, picture and handle I have the perfect match for you. It's that all around bon vivant and raconteur TBirdRider. From what I've read you kids would be perfect, he could listen to music and consider the meaning of art while you, um, you know "maneater" him. If he's having a little trouble coming to attention and your toys are down, he can pop down to the market and fill it up. Better yet use the Triumph to power your vibrator! The TBird makes probably 20 - 30 horse power so it might be enough to get you happy! (Just as a note have you checked to see if your toys are Made in America?). Honestly there's no need to thank me. TBird has generously suggested matches for me, some from say alternative lifestyles. While I honor diversity (I listen to both country AND western music) I only bat hetro. So good luck and God speed. Let us know how it all works out!

It doesn't matter what you ride as long as you do ride. Freedom isn't free; just ask a veteran. I have owned almost every manyfactor there is at one time or another. I have enjoyed everyone I have owned.

kink you just cant keep away from the limelight (you attention whore.)Yep my heart missed a beat over transalp89 & we did mail one another, ok it was only about brit motorcycle boots but Romeo & Juliet had to start somewhere, but there is this wanker (he admits this)Stopthemadness is his handle, after the fair lady. I think he would get on much better with NicholeJ, she has an interesting word & he may teach her another one. Or theres the hermaphrodite gridwitch he can have the best of both worlds with her/him. What a thoroughly nice fella TD98 is & he rides a T'bird like me, also rebuilt an Enfield for his Dad. If I had ever met mine I hope I would have done likewise. Shall we put bets on k6car9 v lummox18 what a rumble that would be, You could be ref kink.

Well, I guess I'll get in on the fray. I would agree that in the big scheme of things, the brand doesn't matter. Riders are riders. But I'll never understand why folks would pay blindly for a nameplate. Yea Yea made in America.. Did you know that the HD ignition system is made in JAPAN? The New VRod Engine.. Developed by Porsche. So, really the American support thing although patriotic, is really a old and dusty argument. Especially when you consider the number of jobs that Japanese companies supply AMERICAN workers. Oh, BTW, it's living in AMERICA that gives us the freedom of choices. It's my citizenship that allows me to buy what every suits my needs and purpose regardless of orig ion. All that being said.. I recently visited "The Art of the Motorcycle" exhibit at the Orlando Art Museum. This was the one that got all the raves from the Guggenheim. One of the last bikes in the display was a Harley. This is no lie.... There was a drip of oil on the display platform LOL. Just thought I'd toss that in there. hee hee.

OK K6, now you've gone and done it. You've insulted TA89 the future Mrs. STM. I can tolerate your negative comments in other posts but now you've crossed the line. So I'm going to have to take you on, but problem is you are way to big. It would be helpful for me to whip you if you'd fast for 6-8 weeks, maybe down a few bad oysters, get tanked and then dude you are in for a world of hurt, OK maybe only a world of discomfort. In the mean time I'll just launch the verbal assault and that alone may do the trick. So here we go; Your spelling and punctuation sucks! Had enough? I though so.

The type of bike isn't relevant to the attitude, you are either a biker or not doesn't matter what you ride.

evening all.....well there seams now to be a split vote on harleys now from my early hammerings about this blog... well to curb all you're curiousity on wheat bike i really own, either if its a harley or a moped.....well surprise surprise its a chicken chaser......you should see it glide between the traffic in london village as it goes undetected, quiet and nimble it squeezes in the tinyest of gaps, of coarse i do meet the occasional harley rider that laughs.....but then i always think back to the tortoise and the hare story, and would you believe how many times that story comes true in a week... ;-) well TRANSALP89 seams you have a few admirers, i must admit you limited you're choice by nailing harley riders....lol...good call.... Triple (rambo)...hows the gun totting lifestyle going....hope you've not shot any pommes confuseing them for me recently....hey listen...why don't you come to blighty...we have real pidgeons here..not clay ones... Harleyguy (fat sinbad) ok...i feel its my education to tell you why us brits have warm beer... we have lager here in the ole blighty which is kept at -2 c on tap.....but we also have bitter which is kept at 0 c, if bitter is kept cool it looses its taste...so hence its kept a little warmer than lager....ok muffin..!!! STOPTHEMADNESS.....ok you've dragged me out of retirement, hope you're satisfied, now i'm going to get a battering from some more harley loving owners.... T-Bird... hope you're well pal.... are you getting all romantic on site here...?

Greetings Bikers; TD98, Dude - you are funny. Have you tried sporting clays? It's like the best parts of golf AND shotguns. I've tried it a few times and had a blast. OK, I have to shoot at least twice per clay but I'm getting better. While we don't agree on a lot, restoring the Enfield for your Pops is something I wish I'd done for my dad... Good on ya. Now Tbird, I'm pretty sure I called dibs on transalp89 first. I can overlook the dis of my speed triple, but this thing between me and transalp89 is special - yeah, sure she doesn't know me, hasn't ever seen me and my PO says I can't travel yet, but I'm sure she is the next Mrs. Madness. So back off brother and give a guy a chance. Now to Lummox18, like you I'm not a Harley guy. The HD bikes though today are pretty well made and Harley is the worlds most successful motorcycle company. I mean nearly 300,000 units sold in the last 12 months. This is the mainstream moto in the US. It's the Toyota Camry of motorcycles. Now if you really want to be a rebel try a Moto Guzzi, or a Big Dog, or an MV, or the Victory, that is the road less traveled. The new BMW R 1200 S is really trick. Have you tried it? No word from the Kink-O-Rama? When will normal service be resumed? Tranny89 - um wait, that doesn't sound right, I mean Miss Transalp89, what do you say Vegas this weekend? You, me, Elvis, service by Father TD98, Kinky could be your bridesmaid (KM,I can be wanker too). I mean it really.. no really. I'm not crazy, they really are out to get me...

Okay, enough bashing Harley's. kinkymunky, it is quite obvious you know nothing about freedom, and the ability we have as American's to express out Freedom, like the wind in your hair crusin down the highway on americas best.... Not doing 110 miles an hour on a riceburner, zipping in and out of traffic, causing accidents, and well just not being "Road Friendly". While you may bash Harley's you don't see the rest of us bashing your cheap, piece of - - - - (fill in the blanks) riceburner!!! I say to each his own, but gotta tell Mr. I think you picked the wrong type of bike to bash on this site. God Bless America!

I could afford to buy a Harley, and then I could afford 5 NEW MOTORS! And then I WOKE UP!!! Sold that money pit, and now I can afford 3 BMW's! It's cheaper to ride 3 different BMW's than it is to have 1 Harley rotting away in the garage. Harley, it's all about the image, lifestyle, and an unwaivering comittment to an antiquated design and technolgically flawed motor. Harley probably reaps a greater revenue stream from parts than they ever would from their bikes. Not calling anybody any names, not slamming any other bikes, simply speaking from my wallet. Now I can corner better, ride faster, enjoy much more comfort, ride farther, all for way less money than doing the same on 1 Harley! Did I mention the missing oil spots in the garage? One day, I just realized the error of my ways, and made a change. So, if Harley made an airplane, would you fly in it? What about Ducati? What about the rest??? Kinda makes you wonder..... I have Bernie Ebbers/WorldCom to thank for my first Harley, as I bought it with the proceeds of stock options. Funny, it's been over 5 YEARS since I was stranded, and that was on my Harley! If I ever buy another American V-Twin, it will be a Polaris Victory! Hmmm, what was the reason that the CHP won't ride Harleys? Something about a speed wobble above 85MPH, no anti-lock brakes, too loud, too slow??? Big Mike R F F R - Retired Naional Officer ABATE of CA L25 AMA D36 #206K

Well Stopthemadness (man of mystery). No I'm not pissed only pissed off for not being offered a top up. My profile does show other pics of me with my bikes, go & have a look.I promise not to send blogs saying you look at men. Oh! your suggestion on best triple I shall file that where the sun don't shine thanks. As for transalp89 I think your 2nd in the queue.

When we are all someday forced to ride nothing or some one world government cloneish, drab color peice of souless shit, then and only then, will topics like this bring tear to my eyes. Does ANYONE remember their very first ride? I do, and a dozen different bikes later, I chose a Harley-Davidson. Choice, man ! The pissing match will never end until we all find ourselves riding in a bubble car on an invisible track as we are hearded into the work center right before the chip in our head is scanned. Some will just have barcode tattooed on their forehead and will thinks it's old school....lol!!!! Yes. All better now. Thank you very much !

Let's see.. Sir Kink-a-lot, funny posts. It's nice to see some give and take on the site. Lately even TD98's gone mellow, no quotes from the biker code, no threats. Thank goodness there are still a few that think not liking Harley is a terrorist act to keep us laughing. TBird are you pissed? You've been holding that same glass in every picture. Hey, It's 2 PM here, so I'm going have a martini in your honor right now (It's after 5 there right?). Love the classic stuff but the Speed Triple in the garage is the best Triumph ever! SoloSue you are one bad ass chick (and I mean that in the nicest way possible). But seriously transalp89, let's get married, I mean immediately. You are a suacy minx aren't you. Peace.
