Like all ads, it only showcases the agenda and biases of the video's producer.

So there's little point in commenting .... and it might be seen as 'Brand Bashing' :twisted:

Lets face it, the HD owners will shake their collective heads, while the Honda owners will cheer in agreement.

I just watched it again and, personally, I didn't find it honest OR funny. Someone has a bee in their bonnet about HD and far too much time on their hands.

But that's just my opinion

The Triumph one about RIIIs was, imho, far more intelligent and amusing....

But I own a HD, so .... :roll:

Why is everyone sooo serious on this site ?
On the 'fighters site everyone rips into each other (in a light hearted jovial way) about the pro's and con's of the different brands...sukzuki's, krapasaki's etc...

That question is probably best directed at Andrew.

It's not that funny, as most of it is incorrect. You could easily make a booze take vid targeting HD appalling "genuine" accessories and it's Dark Custom marketing push with out resorting to cliche's and fallacies.

I like the last couple of seconds though. Whomever decided to wrap up Buell needs a special place in hell reserved for them.

define "sense of humour" .... apparently I'm not the only one who didn't find this overly funny....being a humourless HD (as well as a Yamaha & two Triumphs..) owner I chose not to refer to the cliche's and fallacies mentioned by ND .... so, if no-one else laughs, one might wonder just how humorous it really is.

But what would I know? :roll: :twisted: 8)

define "sense of humour"
Well in one instance it would be 'ability to laugh at ones self'....something that some folk seem unable to do....
I can't believe how much whinging there was about a tongue in cheek, booze take video...must be that english ancestory again...

Why is it that HD riders will slag jap bikes off til they are blue in the face but god forbid anyone dares to mock the mighty hd ?

As for the factual side...springer forks & push rod motors....old technology...

I get ripped all the time by a few mates about my yamahaha organ but I don't cry over it I just take the booze back....

When has anyone here slagged jap bikes?

Old technology isn't bad technology. Yes they still make springers, but they work quite well actually.

HD has plenty of faults that the vid maker could've highlighted. Ridiculous and over priced non motorcycle "Genuine" accessories. HOG members playing dress ups. Chaps. Technicians that charge Doctors rates to do a simple bit of work. Chaps. HD's marketing dept. Endless commemorative editions to celebrate any little milestone. HOGgies that think they're more of a "biker" than you because they have owned 5 HD's in 3 years and you've only had the same one for the last 20. The fact that HD considers Evo engined bikes as "old"' and won't work on them. Chaps. Fat bastiches riding Sportsters. Chaps.

The vid definately wasn't very funny. It certainly wasn't a side splitter like the South Park Harley riders are fags episode.

Whinging? Really? Wow, must be my British ancestry from several generations ago; it's probably not from the corresponding German; although, they do sometimes have a different sense of humour.

Seriously though, I guess if one person finds a video funny, it must be. When two state they didn't think it quite so jolly, they are whingers.

If we can't share our opinions without being called whingers, what's the point of the forum?

It's a mystery! 8)

Maybe we should agree to disagree, without bagging people for differing laugh-o-meters, and get back to enjoying our motorcycles. That's what I'm going to do! I can hear my Girl's Bike Skirtster calling me!
