The New, New Improved Dialogical Saloon

If it was just up to me, I would not have deleted the “The New Improved Dialogical Saloon.” It would still be up. However it offended the great god Google, for whom we will all soon work, because it violated the following Google Adsense guidelines:

  • Redirecting users to irrelevant and/or misleading webpages
  • Text on a page unrelated to the topic and/or business model of the website.”

“You do not need to contact us if you make changes. Please be aware that if additional violations are accrued, ad serving may be disabled to the website listed above. You should immediately take time to review your pages with Google ads to ensure that they comply with our policies.”

    Yeah, and we didn’t have the internet to find parts. Or find a Harley for that matter. You had to actually go outside and look for one. Word of mouth, swap meets, bike shops. No one rode a new dressed Harley, everyone personalized their ride. When I pulled up to the local Saloon, before even going inside, I knew who was there by the Bikes parked outside.
    Now all I see is Street Glides with apes.
    The Internet and Credit have made everything too expensive. Back when it was a Cash world, I could buy a Knuckle in the 70’s for $1000. Now they’re going for 50k and more on ebay. Crazy man!
    Soon I’m going to retire and move away from New England to a quieter, more Americana way of living, not sure where that is yet, but I’m looking.
    If anyone out there knows where I can go back in time, let me know!!

    After deciding i needed more room, I bought a road king. Same bars, grips, cables that were on the evo softy. Well new. But this fi 103 doesn’t have the soul like that bitch did. But cruise control is a trade off right…….. laid out the lines to cut the windshield in and that’s it. Fuck I need a shield for.

    I remember when some friends rode to Harleys big 100th party in Milwaukee- they billed it as “The Party of the Century”.
    When they left to ride down there, the headliner for Saturday night hadnt been announced so of course there were all sorts of rumors as to who it might be- Aerosmith, ZZ Topp, I dont remember who all was floated.
    When they got back and said it was Elton Fucking John I asked them if there was a riot. They said no, but a lot of people left.
    To me, that showed two things- how fucking out of touch Harley brass is with who they were selling bikes to and how far those buying those bikes had strayed from who had been buying them just a few years earlier.
    Either way, I agree that those 900 pound couches are kind of the antithesis of what I like. I had a windshield on my first bike right out of high school, havent had one since.
    How can those guys claim “knees in the breeze”? With all that bodywork in front of them, they probably dont even mess up their hair!

    When I was growing up, no one would have been caught dead riding one of these two wheeled cars. Today; it’s about all you ever see. To this day I still subscribe to the old axiom: “Ride choppers or fuck off”.

    So I’ve been reading the posts about HD, and how expensive they are, and the financing, yadda yadda yadda. My absolute favorite of all time, anywhere, was in one of the HD groups on farcebook. Guy complained that “HD has abandoned it’s core-base of customers, and won’t even answer any complaints from them. I bought my new 2018 UltraHighZootGlide (whatever-I don’t know the new models) and it came with an MP3 player. Couldn’t get it with a CD, which is what I’m comfortable with. What kind of service is that?”

    Whoa. HD sucks because they didn’t sell the sled with his kinda tune-player.

    Now that made me realize what the REAL difference is betwixt guys in/getting in to riding today: When I, and most of the older riders, was getting into big-boy motorsickles, I BUILT my bike. I didn’t know anyone, literally, who bought a new bike. Well, there was my Brother Catfish, but he knew he was never gonna make a payment on the StupidGlide, and it got stripped the same day. Point is, no one could afford a new bike, and no one wanted one that looked like it came from the factory.

    Yup. Different times.
