The Polished Steel Truth

From Harley Davidson, via Peter Michael DeLorenzo, and finally Mr. Dustbury:

"We don't do fear. Over the last 105 years in the saddle, we've seen wars, conflicts, depression, recession, resistance, and revolutions. We've watched a thousand hand-wringing pundits disappear in our rear-view mirror. But every time, this country has come out stronger than before. Because chrome and asphalt put distance between you and whatever the world can throw at you. Freedom and wind outlast hard times. And the rumble of an engine drowns out all the spin on the evening news. If 105 years have proved one thing, it's that fear sucks and it doesn't last long. So screw it, let's ride."

It may not be entirely accurate, but they certainly have got the sentiment right. I may just have to buy one. This was the ONLY picture I could find of people riding harleys and not wearing helmets. Thousands of pictures of bikes, many with people, but almost all were stationary.
