Look like a lot of fun (and they are) but I came a cropper on one once trying too hard and knacked a cruciate ligament in my knee. Kind of stayed away from them since!'Kansas? Fuck that bollocks.' Dorothy Gale 1939.

Harleys don't sound good, they sound loud. It fucks me right off that Aviemore holds a "Thunder in the Glens" event each year where hords of middle aged cocks decend on the place to ride up and down the high street, no helmets, making a fucking din, yet when we ride across on "normal" bikes the Police are all over us like a rash.
I hate Harleys, I hate the people that ride them, I hate what they aspire to be. Unfortunately there is a lot of money in Aberdeen, and a lot of cocks that have worked in the US for a bit and think they are cowboys because of it. My ex boss was one of them. He had an some piss ugly touring thing with 3 lights that he bought for his 50th. Him and his mates would dress up on the odd sunny day and go for a ride out Royal Deeside. 40 mph max, slowing down for the corners...cocks cluttering up the road.
I also know a garage owner who repairs them (there are no Harley Dealers up here) and he thinks its great. He can charge stupid amounts of money to stupid fuckers who don't know the difference between a fork seal and a fork and knife!
And now I will get off the fence
If you want character, there are a whole heap of bikes out there that piss all over Harleys for character, handling and reliability.

Suzuki SV1000? Comfy ride, handle well, go like a thousand raped apes and with a pair of Yoshimura pipes they sound orgasmic.High on life. And glue.

I know where you are with the Hornet thing as I have a tuned up FZ1s with RI forks etc and my heart wants something more involving that puts a smile back on my face. Trouble is I can't afford a new Norton.
