    Harley=The Company That Won't Learn!!  After all these decades, the damned things still place one cylinder directly in the other's slipstream, feed both cylinders off a central induction point, use weak, long studs to secure the cylinders, and employ weak forked connecting rods.  And don't forget that the rear cylinder- the one being "cooled" by hot air coming off the front cylinder- has the rear exhaust valve brilliantly located in very back of the cylinder, thus insuring that this hottest part on the engine receives almost no cooling air.  No wonder they run at such different temperatures.  An amazingly crappy design.  Lucky for them there are millions of "macho" sheep just lining up, wallets open, to be sheared by these purveyors of carefully hyped GARBAGE.

    Harley can learn a thing or two about quality build. Just look at their assembly line. Harley= Flintstones BMW= Jetsons

    I've owned twenty seven bikes, but I fell in love with an Iron Horse when I was ten. A 61 pan head, retired cop bike, spray painted gold, it is a thrill and the feel for a primative soul, that low end torque, beneath a full moon, pulling you up a mountain in second gear. You lean down and put your chest against the tank and feel the heat from the engine take the chill from the night and you know its good to be alive and everything is going to be all right. The Harley Davidson is a work of art, the bike evokes an emotional response. I am in love with the Iron American Dream.

    I've owned three Harley's, a 76 Sportster, a 97 Softtail, and a 2013 Street Glide. I just had to get past that annoyingly loud thumping sound. After a while in just gets on your nerves, especially in traffic, and on long rides.

    How do you know no rice burner cannot do that? My bike has 4 valves per cylinder to your 2……it has a 45lb. auto style two piece crankshaft to your light weight 30lb. pressed together, little crankshaft,….my V twin has 2 spark plugs per cylinder to your 1, and I eat the TWINKIES, 103 and 110 CVOs…..all day long…..and leave them far behind, very quickly with more torque ft/lbs. than your TWINKIE, on my rear tires, and torque is the name of the game in heavy cruisers, to move one down the road…..effortlessly…with your TWINKIE'S  little PLASTIC tensioners, to drive the 2 cams, with your silent chain drive to my bike's SOLID METAL GEAR DRIVE for my two cams……my brother has a TWINKIE 103, so, even in the family, he knows better than to try to strain his high heat output TC, against my bike…….your bike, shuts off it's rear cylinder at idle cause your little bitty junk oil pump only puts out 3 to 8 psi oil pressure at idle, to my 38 psi oil pressure at idle, and I have an air cooled engine….1602cc worth of V Twin power on a custom Soft tail Low…..don't forget to inspect your little  PLASTIC cam chain tensioners or they will break apart and crater your TWINKIE, if the pressed crankshaft, doesn't first twist out of true to crater your engine first……….pal.

    Know why the Harley TC is the safest bike in the world? Cause they don't go fast enough to get hurt on one.

    I have owned many Jap bikes since 1980. Enjoyed them all. I can buy any bike I want, but now ride a Sportster Iron, and this will probably be the last bike I own. My choice, right decision for me. No need for slander if you are a real bike rider.

    I've owned em all.. shovels, evo's, sporty's & twin cam.  I like the evo's, but i think the best set up would be an '06 twin cam, carburated {last yr of the carb} & up grade the cam tensioners to gear 2 gear.. that's my personal opinion b/c the carb eliminates a lot of 'fuel tank' maintance & easy to rebuild when needed & fewer electronics…
