    Geeto,

    I think Lance is right on the "5". My 94 sporty has the same 5 incorporated into the tank graphic, and I beleive it is on the same place on the motor.

    Seems like Harley is trying to broaden their market by going to the skateboard crowd, who I think would be more geared to sport bikes.

    I looked it up and didn't see how the tank graphic has it for that year but you are right I did notice the 5 on other covers. The sportster got a factory 5 speed in 1991 (which is a shame in and of itself since the big twins got them as soon as harley bought back itself from AMF), prior to that the 5 speed was a (pricey) dealer installed aftermarket kit. Now the dealers install 6 speeds into the 5 speed cases. The sporty is the shit bike in the HD lineup, often overlooked and hardley ever updated. The sporty didn't even get an evo style engine until 1986. I think they only got rubber mounting a couple of years ago also. It was the dealer who told me about the 5 standing for 50th anniversary so, so much for your dealer knowing his product, altough this year is the 50th anniversary. SO I was wrong about the 5 on the case but at 16 years it is hardley "big news". we all know harleys are antiquated...blah blah blah.....

    Buell on the otherhand has always been investing in the same powerplant and was able to give their bikes Fuel Injection around the time same time the japanese were using FI on their bikes and HD was expirementing with it on the big twins.

    HD makes more money off "wannabees" than all the gold chain and dub manufacturers put together. Sure there are motorcycle enthuasists who buy their stuff too but the large part of what they sell is an image, and who do you sell an image to? people who don't have one or want a new one. Now that the "x games" generation is starting to come into some money, why not find a way to get all those people who watched espn and never skated, bladed, ski but always wanted to, to fork over their dough-ray-mi for a "hardcore" image. It sucks, it pisses on the people that actually do something cool with their own thing, it is exploitive of what someone else built, but it will probably make them a ton of money and it is not hard to find someone with talent to shill for a big corporation (espically when sponsership is the difference between doing what you love and flipping burgers).

    The fucking thing is tonight, if anybody wants to really give them shit over this then I'm in.

    what the fuck??!!

    I used to skate. When I skated ( a long time ago of course) we were pissed off punks, hated the world and corporate North America.

    When the fuck did it become this hip-hop, fashion conscious corporate whore that it is now?

    teaming up with Harley?

    Holy shit, that's about as bad as it gets... Willy G. and his bullshit "Harley Brotherhood" sales pitch is getting old and long in tthe tooth. Nothing was funnier than seeing 15 identically dressed rebel "bikers" in doo-rags, chaps and fringe-covered leather jackets all riding brand new shiny low-mileage bikes... still isn't much funnier actually.

    is another man's shame,
    Ain't bound for glory
    I'm bound for flames

    the very last 5 speed in a facotry harley was the 1989 (i think) sportster. i know the first few years of the evolution sportster was a 4 speed.

    some people are like slinkies, basically useless but they still make me smile when i push them down the stairs

    don't get it, there hasn't been a 4 speed in harley's lineup since the 70's so how is a 5 speed big news? whoever told you that was pulling your leg lance (unless you were trying to be jackass)

    What me be a jackass what would ever give you that idea.
    maybe a Ass hole from El paso but never a jackass.
