Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

Let's Talk Bikes

Harley just came out with two new soft tail models; The Rocker and the Crossbones.

The Rocker is truly striking. It is Harley's attempt at making a production / custom model. It has a bit more forward rake on the front end and the paint options are absolutely beautiful. The only thing I have to question is the flip up passenger seat. It actually hides under the main seat and hinges back to accommodate a second rider. Cute idea, but that passenger will probably feel as if they are sitting on the small end of a baseball bat. Other than that this is an out of the park home run for HD.

Now the Crossbones. I'm not sure what they were shooting for here but they didn't hit anything. I saw one in my local dealership, and I found myself walking around it many times trying to figure out what it was. It has a springer front end which looks good on anything, but other than that it looks like they were trying to go for some kind of a retro look and just wound up with a mess. The little fat tire on the front looks way out of place. As I understand it you have the choice of any color scheme you wish as long as it's black. That being said though you do have the choice between gloss and flat. I thought maybe if I stood and stared at it long enough it would grow on me and I might start to like it...didn't happen
