I got a Raider because it's a great looking bike with a ton of HP! I also have a Toyota Tundra, because it's a nice truck, and has 381 HP! My wife owns and drives a BMW (it's her thing, not mine!)
The issue is we live in the good ole USA...... I could care less about what some Harley boy thinks of my Raider that may have a decal or paint work showing the flag. It's where I live. Besides, most people around here who ride Harleys all ride the same exact model. Some with more chrome, and some with less. They're all ugly baggers with no imagination!
The Raider after all is completely different, and I imagine looks great from the ass end? Because this will be the only thing a bagger rider will see if side by side with a Raider when the light turns green
Maybe I should paint a little man holding an American Flag with one hand, and waving good bye with the other on the rear fender?
