The LocalRiders Harley Challenge
 
Now I know that Harley-Davidson motorcycles are not exactly the most popular motorcycle brand on LocalRiders, and dare I say that some of us here have some deep psychological issues that compel them to spew hatred toward the company, the motorcycles, and those who ride them. Let me start off by saying those deep-rooted hate comments are not welcome. This isn't a Harley bashing thread. I truly believe that ALL of us find SOME fault with Harley-Davidson, one way or another. I'm no different. It might be the stereotypical attitude and lifestyle commonly associated with the brand. It might be the less-than-honorable decisions made by the company. It might be the low-tech approach and marketing strategies of how Harley defines what a motorcycle should be. Everyone has their reasons, regardless if they are logical reasons or not. That's what makes this a challenge. I want to see Harley-Davidson motorcycles, that you believe to be cool. I mean truly cool. Something different. Something significant. Something that makes you say, "Wow. Now THAT is a cool bike!". It can be a cafe bike, a dragster, a vintage bike, a bobber, a flat tracker, a street tracker, a bike of historic significance, a pure custom, or if you must... a chopper. The more unique, the better. A Buell doesn't count. Sorry, that's cheating. It's gotta be a real Harley. A bike that when you see it, you'd identify it as a Harley. Show me a Harley that someone has taken, and MADE cool. Something so unusual, that is HAS to be cool. Show me a Harley that the pure anti-Harley guys with psychological issues would say, "Eh, that's not too bad.". That's the challenge. This isn't about the people who ride them. It's not about the company. It's about that cool motorcycle, that just happens to be a Harley. It's not an easy task, which is why we're calling it the Harley Challenge.

Here is a Sportster Frame Dragbike that finished 11th national in 2010

I think the index class was 11.3 or something close to. I'll have to get the fine details!

That's why it's a challenge. Now that you've stepped forward, you're required to serve one up. Ha!

WAY COOL!
I have no problem with the company (with minor exceptions--I.E. the image they are promoting) or the product.
