If I was a betting man, I'd bet this is the forum owners
being hassled about the posting of copy-righted material.
Could be just anything posted in the gallery, or could be
Harley Corporate lawyers making obvious that they vigorously
control their rights, which is required by law at least every few years.
Back when it was just Max and some forum member experts
behind these 2 sites, Harley lawyers gave him a really hard time,
particularly about the V-Rod forum. This one too, I remember
him grumbling that it was amazing that there could be serious
legal action about the use of initials, however they were used.
I'd imagine he was talking about HD. Best I could tell, they could
and would inflict serious damage to a dedicated fan site to prohibit
the use of the logo.
You can't blame them, it is the most valuable brand logo on earth,
so long as they can occasionally prove that they really do own it.
