My friend and I are over 55 years old semi retired and feel weird qualified to be part of neighborhood watch and receive the free Harley-Davidson dressers preferably with the stereos and saddlebags and trunks so we can help out on Halloween and help patrol our neighborhoods to keep them safe

As a e rider of the age 69,bending and twisting to clean and lubricate a chain is not something we want to do,every 200 to 300 miles, so we refuse to buy a bike with old technology like a chain. Older riders who have to move their bikes in and out of their garage don't have the strength to move the heavyweight bikes around. Come on manufacturers get up to the 21 century and build some bike in the 400 to 600 lb weight class ,with belt or shaft drive.
