Unka Bart is right.... 1920's technology. I am a big bike lover, Ive had 
everything from 550E to GSXR1100 and everything in between. Now I dont 
know a lot about Hardly's but I do know that I made the mistake of 
getting an apartment across from a biker bar. Biiiiiiiiig mistake. Anyone 
who has made that mistake Im sure is not a Hardly fan. I am not. At all. 
They are two wheeled tractors. (Old tractors, not the modern ones that 
have exhaust...)

In their defense though, my roomie had one. It was nice, and from what I 
understand, that from the factory, they are well muffled...It rode a 
PANTLOAD better than my GSXR too, but thats about it.

If my car ever sounded like a harley, I would be pulled over in a second. 
How come they can get away with it??? Hrmph!

....yeah, and I got flamed 'cause this "isnt a NASCAR list..."  ;-)
