"Harley owners are nothing more than dimwitted sheep and clueless cattle driven by an easily identifiable
flock / herd behavior with a think-by-numbers mindset operating under the misunderstood cause of a
self-assumed, self replicating, trailer park grown, redneck spread pagan religion which has
its roots buried deep in both rampant commercialism and subscription based make-believe.

Christopher T. Shields (Black Echo)

"Twenty-five grand and twenty-five miles don't make you a biker."

"We've all seen that bumper sticker: "If God rode a motorcycle, it would be a Harley." I thought to myself......

out in Nebraska or somewhere waiting for parts!"
