Have seen the commercial, and every single one of those
bikes is a custom chopper, not a stock Harley-Davidson.
Many, if not most, of those 40-something guys who can
afford to spend $30K to $150K on a custom chopper
have very little riding experience. If they did, it was before
marriage and family.
They don't even know how to countersteer a motorcycle,
and those of us with decades of experience consider many
of those owners to be clueless RUBs riding butt jewelry.
Sure, there's also *real* bikers riding those types of bikes,
but they usually built it themselves. If you ever go to Sturgis
during the rally, you'd be astonished at the number of RVs
and motorcycle trailers parked all over the place.
Motorcycling is supposed to be about getting away from it all,
but all too many are into it for ego gratification, and may never
have to replace the rear tires as they rarely ride their Garage
Queens. Too busy making money or something. ;^)
