Hot Dreams....










Harley-Davidson Motor Company (NYSE: HOG, formerly HDI[2]) is an American manufacturer of motorcycles based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The company sells heavyweight (over 750 cc) motorcycles designed for cruising on the highway. Harley-Davidson motorcycles (popularly known as "Harleys") have a distinctive design and exhaust note. They are especially noted for the tradition of heavy customization that gave rise to the chopper-style of motorcycle. [3] [4]

Harley-Davidson attracts a loyal brand community,[5] with licensing of the Harley-Davidson logo accounting for almost 5% of the company's net revenue ($41 million in 2004).[6] In 2003, the Buell Motorcycle Company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Harley-Davidson,[7] the same year that the Motor Company celebrated its 100th birthday. The Motor Company supplies many American police forces with their motorcycle fleets.[8]

Beautiful rendering of a dream. A motorbike was always my dream. The closest "thing" to a motorbike I ever had was a Velosolex.

Oh, well I remember that unique bicycle called "Velosex"...I think that's something that was known only in Switzerland, or maybe in Western Europe...I don't know...

Thanks for your comment, Peter!
