It seems like with some people who are ignorant about bikes, they refer to any cruiser type motocycle as a "Harley" . . . :mad:

Re: Guy (red-neck with gun rack) in a pickup complimented me on a "Nice Harley"

My brother in-law and I were ridin, (he owns a Big Dog) and we stopped to get gas. A fine looking good ol boy with tats from head 2 toe was fillin up his $400 tow truck on the other side and came over and asked what type of bike I had. When I told him it was an 1800 Suzuki, he replied " They keep trying to make those things look like the Old Harleys"... Excuse me but that's one old Harley I have never seen! :p

i had one guy ask who's harley it was. i said what harley, he pointed to 109 so i had to tell him it aint no harley. so after he insults my bike he looks at me like i'm the a$$ hole (which i am but he was provoking me).

Ya' have to give HD credit. It's a lot like a "Jet Ski" or a "Kleenex". A "jet Ski" is made only by Kawasaki, they just coined the term and marketed the name the best, and "Kleenex" is just one brand of tissue that promoted their product the most. Now those are household terms that people use to generalize entire industries.
Oh, how about a "Ninja"? How many times have you heard that name to mean a non-Kawasaki? HD is no different and that's probably what contributes hugely to their sales success.
