    Harley apparel

    Do any of you have Harley gear? I've been looking at some boots mainly because I haven't seen anything quite as cool. They seem to be in a decent price range which is a shocker. I always thought Harley stuff was way expensive. How well does their stuff hold up? Is the gear worth the money, or is it the name selling the apparel?

    Before any of you point to other boot companies and tell me how much better they are, I just want to say that I have searched long and hard for a pair of boots that I like, and these are it. I want to be comfy on the bike and look ok enough to walk around. These are the boots, if they can meet the longevity and durability criteria.

    You know what they say about people with big feet.

    hehe - I don't have my stuff over here yet from my Mom's (vests, slinky arse high heeled knee kinda boots and some fringed chaps) - but will takes some pics of some of my jackets that I do have here ... even have a white totally fringed outfit skirt with leather jacket and fringed leather white boots. <shakes head> Lots of money spent on that stuff!!!

    Have a most unusual Hooded leather "sweatshirt" kinda thing - very cool with a front pocket - bought it at a garage sale for $5 - husband was selling off ho-wife's stuff. I felt terrible purchasing it, but was glad I did. Even though I'm not part of that crowd anymore (hung with clubs) - I wear this hooded leather - it's so great with cool weather and the fact I can have another sweatshirt underneath is a plus.

    ... but you can't have them - they are a retired portion of me life - and are quite sweet looking too. You needs a good leather store - and one I mean - when you walk by - the leather smell just drawz you in ........

    Old leather is cool, new leather is awesome. An expenditure ... yes - but it lasts and lasts - and it becomes more fitted to you the more you wear it.

    The decent price range stuff from an HD dealer is a shocker
    But, it is good stuff. Obviously Harley spec their stuff out but its
    all good stuff. They dont peddle any junk. Im not a big chrome
    guy, but even their chrome look-@-me stuff is better than Arlen Ness
    or Custom Chrome or any of that stuff

    Herman and Tequilla are the Forever Duo. Sorry for the peeps who wrote the song, performed it - perhaps won an award for it - but Pee Wee stole it, hands down.

    With a Hoover, the dirtbag is on the inside.
    Americans as a whole are far too stupid to use this democracy thingy. It takes thought, and thinking hurts most people.

    What I learned from Asian films is that the human body holds as much as 50 gallons of blood, with an internal pressure of at least 80 psi.

    I've got an FXRG leather jacket and it's great quality. It's new, so I can't speak for its longevity, but based on the research I did, they last and hold up excellently.

    I just bought some new boots a couple of weeks ago. I went with SIDI though, mainly because I wanted boots that would actually protect me in the event of a crash.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Because too many of them are obnoxiously loud. Actually, obnoxious is too mild a term.

    are very nice and well made and you don't have to experience the stigma of being another silly man in Harley garb.

    Hate on HD? Too many R.U.B.s, not enough actual riders.

    I like the bikes (well, the stripped cruisers... if you want a bagger, get a honda )
    No lugs, no care.

    Because 40 grand for a Gold Wing is reasonable?

    How many have you owned ?

    When you go to sell your Honda, how much will you lose ?

    On my last HD, I paid it off and made 2000.00. There will never, ever, ever
    did I say ever, be a Honda that happens on. Or, BMW or Ducati or......<insert name here>..........

    There are pages on the 'net showing statistics of HD's to have one of the
    highest built/still in use ratio's of an vehicle ever built in the world, if you care to research this stuff...
    Seeing how many '60's era Hondas vs. Harleys you see at a meet would bear this out.

    To say the type of stuff you posted means you just dont know bikes, at all.

    There's just as many metric cruisers that are too loud and poorly tuned.

    A D&D piped GXSR 600 at 11,000 is always a pleasant sound

    REalistically, a lot of HD riders suffer 'Look-@-Me' syndrome,
    but that doesn't have anything to do with how the bikes are made.
