Really!! Do you have to have a reason to buy a Harley? No money, need a new car or just plain broke, these are all good reasons for not buying a Harley. This is the real reason one buys a Harley, Friends.
I found the best friendships on Harley Davidson weekends. I always worked weekends and it was difficult for me to ride weekends. I found a way to go on four weekend rides a year. Having Tuesday and Wednesday off was a blessing. I went on two day trips and was out of town. I would put one thousand to three thousand miles on a two day ride. Just for the joy of riding.
Here are a couple of reasons to buy a Harley for Christmas :
1. the wind in your face gives you a sensation of flying down the road as if you were in a biplane gliding through the air,
2. Alone on an empty highway with your God and yourself contemplating the universe. All your problems seem to disappear .
3. Their is a sense of invincibility as your riding down the coast as the sun sets as if there was an Angel sitting on your shoulders. You against the world and your Angel is your back up fighter. You seem to have less problems on the highway of Zen.
I can see how it would be difficult for a young man to buy a Harley when he has two kids to raise. I had no children to worry about. My wife and I worked at enjoying life. We invested wisely and when everything was said and done, I saved for my Harley and my wife reaped the enjoyment of my toy. We traveled the USA TOGETHER on our Harley. Thanks to my friends in that photo above made the investment more enjoyable and we remained friends for forty years. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! PURA VIDA!
We rode to the coast with our friends
Our bikes cruising through the curves and bends
Through forest which never seems to end
Soon Bodega Bay loomed ahead
A quiet town on the California coast
Where Hitchcock made seagulls our host
Where the winds blow strong
And the highway is called one
You enjoy the curves on the coastal road
As your gal gives you a hug and grabs a hold
And whispers for a little more speed
As you lurch forward and take the lead
In a wink of your eye
Your friends pass you by
You watch as they disappear
You do not mind being in the rear
Enjoying the curves and the bends
Not worrying about your friends
Suddenly on the beach they appear
Waving with great cheer
It is great sight
Friendship which brings great delight
An ocean cruise With only a chosen few
A ride to Bodega Bay
A ride with friends on a perfect day
Life is grand this way
