The motorcycle was designed and built by the German inventors Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach in Bad Cannstatt. In 1901, William S. Harley, age 21, drew up plans for a small engine with a displacement of 7.07 cubic inches (116 cc) and four-inch (102 mm) flywheels. The engine was designed for use in a regular pedal-bicycle frame.
Over the next two years Harley and his boyhood friend Arthur Davidson labored on their motor-bicycle using the northside machine shop at the home of their friend, Henry Melk. It was finished in 1903 with the help of Arthur’s brother, Walter Davidson. Upon completion the boys found their power-cycle unable to conquer Milwaukee’s modest hills without pedal assistance. Will Harley and the Davidsons quickly wrote off their first motor-bicycle as a valuable learning experiment.
Since then motorcycles have been apart of the world community. We look at people who have Harley’s as rebels and slackers. It takes some skill to learn to ride a motorcycle and can take some time to develop the right skills to ride it everyday in everyday traffic. Given the nature of the motorcycle they are found to be more dangerous then driving a car.
But, most and I mean most bikers are arrogant assholes that don’t give a damn about others. When you buy a Harley it comes as quiet as a mouse. But then the fuckers take out the damn silencers and fucking go up and down the god damn street as loud as they can. Are you on fucking crack? do you have any fucking respect for people? No, No you don’t. We need to wage war. If Bikers can’t respect others then we need to ban bikes. You fucked it up for yourselves now you need to be punished. I say shut down Harley and put all the fuckers who ride the bikes that load in jail for life. Hell if I had it my way the death penalty. Either ride respectfully or don’t ride at all.
