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...

Harleys.

Never owned or ridden one.   Would like to try one even if it's just to see if they're as bad as everyone makes out.  Had a neighbour who had one a few years ago, asked him what it was like, he said like riding a two wheeled tractor (883 Sportster) he sold it shortly after. They do sound good though and must be relaxing to ride...

Harleys are Cool

If you like cruisers then once you ride a Harley you will never want to ride anything else.

Are they cool? yes they are.

But... Being cool doesn't make them any good, If you judge them as an overall package, as a motorcycle, they are shite.

They are outdated throwbacks pandering to wannabe neanderthals.

For normal people a Harley is about as much use as a useless thing.
