One of the first things anyone notices on the first day of good weather in the spring is the roar of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, a sound absent in most parts of North America during the winter months. While they may not be the only bikes on the road, a cursory look shows that it is pretty obvious that they dominate the world of the iron horse.
After more than 100 years, Harley-Davidson bikes continue to be the best selling motorcycles in the United States of America. The powerful V-Twin engine design has been refined by the company throughout the years and it's sound has transcended the familiar to the point where it actually defines the very sound of freedom. Harley-Davidson motorcycles are very much an icon of classic Americana, but that doesn't mean that the bikes themselves are antiquated in any way. The company has gone to great lengths to integrate new technology into their products including such advances as electronically controlled fuel injection.

These types of innovations offer true value to the rider in the form of increased efficiency and lower emissions, but company designers are careful not to tamper too much with the secret spice recipe that is fused into every Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Most so-called “innovations” are really just your run-of-the-mill trend which is here today and gone tomorrow. Harley engineers are trained to recognize that most of these fads are here today and gone tomorrow thus they go to great lengths to leave such things aside when building each subsequent generation of motorcycles.
Motorcycle enthusiasts will universally agree that Harley-Davidson motorcycles are some of the finest bikes on the road today. Over the past 30 years the quality of the bikes in general has continued to rise to new heights but, as with anything made by man, there is always the potential that one design or another will be sub par. I would be nice to know the truth about the Harley-Davidson motorcycle you are interested in before investing thousands of dollars in a bike that will leave a sour taste in your mouth. It isn't usually wise to take the word of a dealer, the company marketing department where quality is concerned because they have an interest in getting you to buy a bike whether it's a lemon or not. The same goes for the biker media which survives on advertising dollars which can be taken away at the drop of a hat should they write a piece decrying the newest Harley-Davidson motorcycle design which may be fraught with issues.
