  • I chose my bike on how it handles, not the name. If you are primarily interested in resale value, the HD is the bike for you. Otherwise, you should test ride several bikes. They are not all the same and find the one that fits you best. People often say "Harley" as a generic for "cruiser" type bikes, rather than sport or dirt bikes. But each manufacturer makes all kinds. If youre gonna GIVE me a bike, then by all means, I'll be happy to take it! :D
  • Think I'll step to the side and answer on behalf of my sister and BIL instead of myself. Why? Long time and proud Harley owners. They not only love being on the road locally, they've been cross-country (USA) on their Harley. They'll also be glad to tell you all the stereotypes out there about riders ... and of all the money raised for charity by Harley owners. :)
  • Just a cool one with a side cart please mrs claus!
  • Another type. The japanese bikes are much better and cheaper
  • Some other motorcycle will be fine.
  • I wanna Harley so bad - Most all my friends have them and they are always going on rides in the summer, i get to ride my mountain bike :( :( :(
  • My husband has a Harley. I like it alot, I am very happy he finally got his dream. I think he would not have been as happy with anything else. If someone asked me to recommend a type of bike to buy, I would tell them to buy a Honda. The Harley is great, but the price is outrageous, the safety items that are considered add-ons are ridiculous (they come standard on other bikes) and the maintenance is never ending.
  • A few of my friends own Harleys. They wouldn't have it any other way. Myself, I would settle for anything right now. Thanx for asking.
  • I would much rather ride bitch on a Harley....I like all the vibration that bike makes.(wink wink)
  • Even Sonny Barger of Hell's Angels fame (notoriety?) says that Harley is overrated
  • i would rather have a H-D.
  • I prefer the looks and sound of a Harley myself. They tend to cost slightly more but it's worth it to me. Mine only vibrates when sitting still, so when riding there's no vibration. Stock Harleys aren't loud either. To each their own, but I hate when people degrade others choices. Ride what you want it's all the same wind.
  • It's gotta be a harley! :)
  • I've owned motorcycles for 42 years and for me Harley-Davidson is the only way to go. For those that can't afford, handle or dislike them for whatever reason, there are many other choices. I don't discriminate against what other people choose to own, at least they ride. Which is more than can be said for a lot of those who like to criticize what I ride !!
  • Theres nothing like a chopped v-twin (not necessarily a Harley) for a cruise, but for an adrenalin rush of raw power and performance, nothing beats the Suzuki 1300 Hayabusa. Sick speed right out of the box with silky smooth aerodynamics. There is nothing like running 150mph smooth as silk and knowing you still have a quarter throttle to go. SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET! Well that is until you hit a deer at 120mph, which I did. Not sweet at all.
  • suzuki hayabusa...
  • I have a vulcan cause HD's are problematic.i wanted a softail heritage.but can't afford the repair college i would need to attend to fix my new HD.lol.besides Harleys are overrated.but ALL MOTORCYCLES ARE AWSOME TO RIDE.SO TO EACH HIS/HER OWN.just enjoy the moments on a bike on the country road.
  • no way goldwing for me
  • GO AMERICAN ALL THE WAY, HARLEY DAVIDSON
  • its all about the HD
  • I have an Electra Glide and a Goldwing with/sidecar. I'd rather have two Goldwings.
  • Any BMW, Honda or Kawasaki wins me over. Harley's are too... American for my liking
  • VICTORY... a real american bike
  • SUZUKI,they are bullet proof,harleys are overrated
  • I own a ducati 1098 r the finest motorcycle in the world
  • a dicoti please, or a ninja
  • I like my Harley, as for as loud pipes you know what we say " loud pipes save lives". I like that they are made in the USA even if some of the parts are not. So to answer the question, I would rather have a Harley.
  • You have to first consider what type of riding do you plan to do. Are you into sport riding on curvy canyon roads? All out speed at the dragstrip? Or do you want to cruise the local boulevards and highways with buddies? If you have a valid motorcycle license most dealerships allow some type of test rides for those seriously looking to buy. When I was in my 20's and early 30's it was all sport riding for me. Now in my 40's I prefer a more upright riding position that the cruisers offer. As for resale value you can't go wrong with buying a H-D!
  • There are great bikes on www.nobelmobility.com Those guys are amazing.
  • I myself prefer the thrill and excitment of what is commonly reffered to as a "crotch rocket" or simply a sportbike. Mailny for the handling and the get up and go. I own a suzuki gsxr 750. Cant beat the fun of riding a sportbike, although cruisers have there advantages as well.
  • I currently own a Harley (1938 ULH 80 ci) but BMW makes good bikes too. +5
