My pothead, computer hacker-phreaker friend and mentor in High School had a sportbike. (Crotch rocket)
I suppose I know that I've grown older because for the first 1/3 of my life, I've gazed lustfully towards sportbikes.
Still, Harley Davidson. What a cool history.
At the age of 21, William Harley drew up plans for a small engine to put on regular pedal-bikes of the era. (1901) By its completion in 1903, their 116 cc experiment couldn't even make it up a hill without pedal assistance. Talk about humble beginnings for a motorcycle company. William Harley and Arthur Davidson's motorcycles have been used in two World Wars and are widely popular among freedom-seeking adults today.
