These guys are decent HD people, no disrespect intended, but some of them are just so NEW at this...
Check this comment out, in a thread where V-Rod owners are testifying about how much they REALLY love their bikes....

I wonder if the other folks that own Harley's other models are as passionate about their bikes as we are...somehow, I doubt it. I mean it...we really are emotionally involved with our bikes!
See if you think this about sums it up...

Guaran-fukkin'-teed

there are more Harley-Davidson tattoos,

that have been PROUDLY worn by their owners for more years than there have been V-Rods,

THAN THERE ARE V-RODS!


ARE YOU THAT PASSIONATE? ARE YOU THAT SURE? ARE YOU THAT COMMITTED?

No substitute for time. A few centuries should do it :D

Pete,
Please excuse my ignorance, but would you mind explaining the patch?
Thanks,
Lil
No excusing necessary - it's quite obscure and only Scots would really recognize it.

That's the Logan Clan badge. We were in the service of Robert the Bruce when he died, and two of our knights and some soldiers were in the contingent under the Black Douglas who set out to carry his heart to Jerusalem for burial, according to his last wishes.

The heart represents the heart of the Bruce, and the passion thorn Jerusalem.

The Clan motto over the top is HOC MAJORUM VIRTUS - This is the Honor of my Ancestors, and the Clan name is the bottom rocker.

Done in metal, it would be worn as a cap badge, like this, as an arm badge. I've never heard of it being worn as a back patch.

Here's one story:-

http://www.fife.50megs.com/bruce-death.htm

The end of the tale is told in the Clan thus, which I like better. We made it as far as about the middle of Spain when we were set upon by a vastly superior force of Moors. Being surrounded and heavily outnumbered, and seeing the cause was hopeless, the Black Douglas took the casket containing the heart of his King, and threw it forwards into the thickest part of the fighting, and followed it to his death, crying "Where thou goest, Lord, I follow".

The entire party was wiped out to the last man. The Moors, having no idea of the significance of the lead casket, simply left it where it fell.

Fortunately, one of our number had been left behind at the previous night's stop, having got so drunk that he fell off his bench and broke his arm. Having had the arm set in the morning, he followed on, and found the party entirely dead. Seeing no realistic prospect of completing the mission on his own, he retrieved the casket, did his best for the dead, and returned to Scotland, where he turned the casket over to the Church, and it was buried in Melrose Abbey.

And for this brilliant victory, we were awarded the badge :D

That's why I'm happy for this forum! Many of the vrodders are ex sport bike riders (which is fine with me) but I've always had harleys or customs, and it's nice to come here and read alittle about them too.

Well, Mr. Pete Logan!!! I am quite glad over asking the question and absolutely thrilled with the response.


That is why I'm happy with this forum! Where else would I have gotten to learn about a Scottish fellow going by the name Pete Logan and all the rest of this perfect bunch of good folk!

Scottish joke for ya, Lil :D

Two Englishmen- businessmen in London - were sitting down for a break in
their soon-to be new store. As yet, the store wasn't ready, with only a
few shelves set up.

One said to the other, 'I bet any minute now some stupid tourist is going
to walk by, put his face to the window and ask what we're selling.'

No sooner were the words out of his mouth when, sure enough, a curious
Scotsman walked to the window, had a peek, and in a broad Scottish
accent asked,

'What are you selling' here'

One of the men replied sarcastically,

'We're selling arse-holes.'

Without skipping a beat, the Scotsman said,

'You are doing well ... Only two left!'

Englishmen - God bless them :rofl::rofl:
