I like Victory. It is tough competing with Harley. Its nice that there is another American bike on the market, as Indian and Excelsior-Henderson have closed up shop again. Personally, I take the reliability, affordablity, and performance of a japanese bike over Harley any day

"Mercedes ever build a motorcyle?'


Daimler made a reitwagon in 1885. Two wheels and a gas engine. Sorry no pictures.

Why yes, actually Gottlieb Daimler is credited for making the FIRST motorcycle, the "Einspur" (single track). Here is a picture:

I don't really care all that much for Harleys. They're cool, but I'm not really into cruisers (or large touring bikes). I prefer a sports-tourer like BMW's.
