2003-08-06 05:15:31 PM  
The clutch slips a bit but it's still a sweet ride.
2003-08-06 05:16:26 PM  
but no pic! that's so stupid.
2003-08-06 05:16:45 PM  
Wouldn't it be a salty ride?

I kill myself
2003-08-06 05:25:30 PM  
Too bad it wasn't a Suzuki cause I like buttered rice.

I touch myself

Mmm... butter.
2003-08-06 11:55:50 PM  
My harley never leaked oil. Granted, I did have a set of custom made gaskets.
2003-08-06 11:56:20 PM  
I can't believe it IS butter!
2003-08-06 11:59:18 PM  
worst article pic?...what the hell is the point of a butter sculpture link with no butter sculpture pic....i feel so ripped of. SOOOOOOOO RIPPPED OFF.

Oil leakage was a hallmark of the AMC era. Not really a big problem anymore, but they'll probably never live down the stigma.

Quit being a wuss, ride a V-Max...

Ok, actually they dont leak oil, but blow oil out of the air cleaner. No joke, I have a sportster and blowing oil out the air cleaner is just residue from how the engine is lubercated. You can get breather tubes to route the oil below the bike... make it look like a leak, much better than blowing on the side of the bike... if it aint leakin it must be out of earl...
2003-08-07 12:10:03 AM  
I think the question is, who cares if it IS butter?

My dad drives a Yamaha.

...And he can beat up your dad!
2003-08-07 12:15:52 AM  
...what is this log-in shiat?
2003-08-07 12:21:04 AM  
It boggles my mind that someone actually said "Hey! Let's make a Harley out of butter." and someone else agreed.
2003-08-07 12:24:08 AM  
Made entirely out of butter (except the frame)?
2003-08-07 12:24:43 AM  
Outlaw2097 I didn't have to log in before but I need to now. Someone working there must have been on Fark and seen this and then changed it.
2003-08-07 12:26:06 AM  
If you melt it with a blowtorch, it will run better!
2003-08-07 12:26:28 AM  
What's the difference between a Harley and a vacuum cleaner?

The position of the dirtbag...

Tee hee...I'll get a Harley when I can find a '60 FL. If that doesn't leak oil, it doesn't have any in it.
2003-08-07 12:26:43 AM  
Than a regular Harley I mean.

You guys make me feel so special.

/I just got back from doing 4800 miles around the western half of the USA in two weeks on my harley without an incident...and can you believe it, NO LEAKS. Oh, and I put the whole trip on Mr. Underhills American Express card...want the number?
2003-08-07 12:33:50 AM  
Take a couple of tablespoons of butter and melt in a nonstick skillet. Chop up a large clove of garlic, slice up one large onion, and add sliced mushrooms. Saute under medium heat, stirring frequently until done (shrooms getting browned and onions translucent). Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with eggs. I like mine boiled.
2003-08-07 12:34:41 AM  
I rode the Harleys at Dave & Busters. Even they leak oil.
2003-08-07 12:35:49 AM  
I live right by the fairgrounds (10 miles), They make the whole thing out of butter.. No metal frame... God I hate this state...
2003-08-07 12:44:08 AM  
I want a picture =(
2003-08-07 12:45:04 AM  
Old story
2003-08-07 12:55:42 AM  
Can't think. That personal ad is frightening and confusing me.
2003-08-07 12:58:53 AM  
Pshaw, it still doesnn't run better than my Honda Ninja made entirely of rice.
/Ricer hater

johnny_wadd:No kidding. She lookes like the kind of woman that would care your name into her leg with a razor blade.
And then care out your eyes when "the voices" tell her that you're cheating on her.
2003-08-07 01:02:57 AM  
What the hell...they change the word c_a_r_v_e? I know i didn't spell it wrong TWICE.
2003-08-07 01:12:08 AM  
I was always biased towards Harleys but thats because I'm a rice rider... There was a demo-ride for the Ride For Sight so I figured I'd give one a try and see if they really were that bad... I found out that they weren't that bad, but worse than expected... my first bike was an old 1 cylinder Honda Ascot 500 piece of crap and it cost me $200, and it could beat the hell out of the $20,000 harley piece of GARBAGE that I rode... ya thats my 2 cents and seriously I was so mad after that ride I wanted to kick it over... I've been a bitter angry shell of a man since
2003-08-07 01:24:33 AM  
What do Harley riders suffer from?

. . Loose nuts.
2003-08-07 01:25:44 AM  
I heard they raffled of the sculpture afterwards. She celebrated with a bottle of champagne.
No nudity, but NSFW, or home, or for viewing by anyone who doesn't have a Visine bottle loaded with bleach.
2003-08-07 01:31:53 AM  
Like I said, I'm not saying I'll NEVER own one, but my cousin lost a clutch perch bolt on hit 2003 FXDL at about 300 miles, and another friend lose the shifter peg on his 2003 FXDWG on the way to his 1000 mile service. I ride a 2002 SV650S and at 8000 miles, nothing has fallen off. I'm cool with anyone on 2 wheels, but at $23000 for an FXDWG, I'll buy a VTX1800 to park next to my SV and have cash left over to go to Daytona. Wasn't this discussion about butter?
2003-08-07 01:39:46 AM  
Okay I'm not surprised that the article didn't have a picture. I won't complain that it was a waste of time, but Why haven't any farkers gone and posted a picture yet? Some of us are lazy and don't care enough to use google. Although it would have been considerable less effort than typing all of this. No I didn't read all the posts ahead of me.
2003-08-07 01:39:58 AM  
I've seen horror shiat from Buells, engines imploding at 9K, they're under-engineered and over-driven. I have absolutely no confidence in them in pressure situations.

I'd rather ride a SECA II (hell, a SECA I) than a Harley...

/quack ;)
2003-08-07 01:41:14 AM  
good greif TommyymmoT, did that come from a GIS for butter eater?
2003-08-07 01:43:45 AM  
For some reason, my sadistic mental magic lantern show projectionist chose to combine this image of the butter harley together with an image from that story about the nudist bikers we had a while back. Now I need TommyymmoT's bottle of bleach with the long, intracranial needle attachment to flush out my brain.

And you do too. My misery loves your company.
2003-08-07 01:46:33 AM  
Tommyymmot Do you think she knows it's there?

"The bottle was there a moment ago when I leaned over the table."

And if I hurry, I can catch the late express train...0

Actually, the picture is a screen shot from a home movie entitled "Honeymoon in Des Moines".

TommyymmoT Er... your honeymoon?

Just a moment while I get my gun...

atomic_99 Is that the bike in progress? It has a metal frame! It's not solid butter!

I want my money back.
2003-08-07 02:04:31 AM  
aerohitfihi: As soon as my Calloway Corvette comes in, I'll get it!

That's still a pipe dream. A beautiful one no doubt, but still a pipe dream.

Then again I thought the same of the Viper, so... ;)
2003-08-07 02:33:45 AM  
Malinois: Let it be pipe dream.
The sales figure of your stuff shows what a pipedream is.
And i will still spend my money on that pipe dream and a lot of my other friends.

You dont judge a machine by the number of cylinders. This is 21st century.

You are out of business.
2003-08-07 02:40:42 AM  
infact you are comparing a Bike with a car. How lame.

There are better machines out there than just a corvette.
Read the headline. Atleast this thing dosent leak oil. Granted you have some motor power, but thats not the 21st century is looking for.

Once again you are out of business.
