This was a post that was on the blog before we took over the site. But we love (hate?) Harleys too, so we decided to recreate it!
It is amazing some of the things that you will come across while surfing the web. In fact, I have started a collection of pages that I have found and would like to share with my readers.
Today’s link is to a very large and popular blog site with many contributors called Blog Critics Magazine. I mean this site is huge! However, today we will be exploring the culture section where Frank Giovinazzi of Car Buyer’s notebook made a post entitled Harley Davidson – How Do I Hate Thee. Its a rather small post in itself where Frank gives out 11 reasons why he hates Harley Davidson and the dweebs (as he refers to them) who ride them. The post was made in may of 2003 and only contains 243 words, but to this day the Post still gets traffic and has currently 1745 comments with the last comment being made as of this post at 16:36 on January 12th. That was yesterday in case nobody is paying attention…. this post has been read and commented on for going on 5 years now.
I have to hand it to Frank for making this post. Fact may even be that the man owns a Harley. But whether he does or not is not what it is all about. It is about the controversy that was created by him making the post. The post about hating Harley Davidson that has almost created a meeting hole on the web where people get together on a semi-regular basis to kick sand at each other on everything motorcycle related from helmet laws to owning American vs metric motorcycles. How ingenious of Mr. Giovinazzi.
There you go! Check out the blog post and shoot us a comment below and let us know your opinion of Harleys! By the way, not sure where the laws are headed, but I thought I’d mention it here while we’re talking about motorcycles…pretty soon the government might start requiring smog checks for motorcycles too. At any rate, keep your bike clean, and you won’t really have anything to worry about!
