      Harley WTF 

      6 years ago

      If Harley did a better job at promoting beautiful traditional cruisers like their Softail Deluxe or Heritage Softail, they would not have to sell commercial rat bikes for 10k a pop. Someone give them a clue and tell them to build a mid-size cruiser someone would actually want to drive before moving up to a "Big Twin".
