When you were here before,
couldn't look you in the eye.
You're just like an angel,
your skin makes me cry.
- Creep, Pablo Honey,by Radiohead
Her icy blue eyes make your heart melt and her perfect smile and giddy laughter will make you happy no matter what.
Harley cares about everything, no matter how much she might deny it.
You just can't help but fall in love with her.
"I've been talking to Harley all day. (:"
Harley Davidson dominated the American motorcycle market until the mid-1960's when Honda introduced a line of smaller-displacement less intimidating lightweight bikes. The smaller Japanese bikes could not match the performance of the then ing-of-the-hill Sportster, a bona fide street racer and land-speed record holder and still the best selling middleweight motorcycle in history.
But, the less-intimidating Japanese machines became top-sellers, and changing times hurt Harley Davidson sales.
Harley Davidson was acquired by AMF in the 1960s and quality, along with sales, plummeted. The "AMF Years" almost dealt a death-blow to Harley-Davidson and saddled the motorcycles with a bad reputation which has, unfortunately, been hard to shake, even though the current production bikes have a reputation among motorcyclists as having almost bulletproof reliability.
In the 1980s, Harley was bought back from AMF and completely re-vamped. Quality was back, and customers flocked to dealers, and still do.
