(from the dust jacket)
To the bandana-wearing Hognoscenti , a Harley-Davidson motorcycle is much more than the sumof its steel, chrome, rubber, plastic and leatherparts. Ask converts why these machines are specialand you'll hear a variety of misty-eyed eulogiesevoking hazy concepts like "soul," "feel," "character," "legend," and "heritage."
Few vehicles have ever inspired such devotionand brand loyalty as the "Hog." It's one thing towear a company's trademark on a t-shirt; it's quite another having it tattooed across your back for therest of your life. But go to massive annual Harleyparties like Sturgis or Daytona and that's exactlywhat you'll see, along with Harley fans ceremonially pummeling Hondas and Suzukis into scrapmetal with sledge hammers in front of gleeful,cheering crowds.
People ride Harley-Davidsons for very specificreasons; reasons which have nothing whatsoever to do with handling, outright performance, sporting supremacy or engineering one-upmanship.
To some they represent a timelessly charismaticantidote to the clinical excellence and technological rat-race of cutting-edge sportsbike design.Others are attracted to the look; the in-your-facechrome'n'leather glitz. And then there's the noise.Harleys sound like no other motorcycle, especiallywith the almost-compulsory loud aftermarketexhaust. Growling through open pipes, their signature tune - that famously unmistakable "potato-potato" rhythm - is a ground-shaking bass rumble that Hell's Angels author Hunter S.Thompson once described as a "burst of dirtythunder."
But more than anything, for today's Harleyriders a down-payment on a new Hog is a passport to the past, a way of buying into a rose-tinted, chrome-plated dream of America's gloryyears. Or rather one particularly golden chapterin America's past; the era which embraced theheroism of World War II and the limitless optimism of the 1950s.
