Staff Blog: Are Harley's cool?

A couple of years ago I asked an MCN work experience girl what she thought of motorcyclists. I was hoping she’d use words like ‘cool’, ‘exciting’, perhaps even ‘sexy’ but instead she said, “They’re all old blokes... you think they could be a bit of alright and then they take their helmets off... and they’re all my dad’s age.” She wasn’t talking...

Only Arnold Schwarzenegger can make a Harley look cool. Secondly stop chatting up the work experience girls its wrong.

Yes, A Harley is cool to look at.. But I do prefer a bike where the right side of the handlebars is a bit moore than just a volume control.....

Pretty creepy story, bro

Sounds like one of those accuntants who buys a Ewan-and-Charlie bike then keeps telling Stacey at reception that he's going on a tour of the Carpathians, and there's room for two.

thing is.

when i owned a gsxr 1000 k7 no one bothered about it at bike meets etc.

but as soon as i turned up on a harley iron people started wanting to talk to me about it, ask about the upgrade and also plenty wanted to sit on it with the engine running so they can hear the v+h pipes roar.

since the bike went to a 1200 ive loved it and everyone does hear you coming and look for you. cars move out of the way and when its parked up it just looks cool.

the gsxr may have had the speed but the iron just makes me feel great.
