Staff blog: Roman Holiday

My ride to Rome is now a distant memory (see MCN July 3) but I'll always have a load of holiday snaps to remind me. Here are some that didn't make it into the paper and also the links to the Google maps for the four day route... Day one, Calais to Reims: http://tiny.cc/79c1ywDay two, Reims to Geneva: http://tiny.cc/qfd1ywDay three, Genava to Genoa: http://tiny.cc/led1ywDay four,...

As a Harley FatBoy rider I must say that if anyone thinks tuning a Harley is either necessary or desirable then you bought the wrong bike in the first place so sit back relax and enjoy the coolest ride in town and if you must go fast by a sports bike.

No

Anyone can think that tuning any bike is desirable and therefore necessary. It doesn't matter what bike you have - it's your ride and you should be allowed to do to it whatever makes you happy without judgement from people who insist on pigeon holing. Most people ride because they're not pigeon hole people.

Well

There is the social responsibility of not tuning a street bike in a way that excessively increases emissions or noise.

Riding a Harley fast in the uk you are not limited by horsepower,ground clearance and brakes are the limiting factors a stock HD has plenty of toque to get it from corner to corner I bet this staff member is no where near the limits of this bike as it is much like most idiots on sports bikes .

Profit

Harley-Davidson stock engines are in a low state of tune, which allows dealers to sell Screaming (B)Eagle™ upgrades at the time of sale. The margins on these upgrades are typically 100% markup, as opposed to the 35% or so mark-up on new motorcycles. It is not unusual in the US for a Harley-Davidson to leave a dealer with $5,000 to $10,000 of upgrades and accessories.
