Before I start, I just want to say that I appreciate the road that Harley Davidson has gone down to not only push the boundaries with motorcycle designing concepts, the history that is behind your brand, and to appeal to someone like me who would have never thought about being on a motorcycle 10 years ago finally take the plunge to complete freedom. I was reading an article about the internship with Harley Davidson and I would be interested in trying this out, but with a little but of a different twist. I am not a recent graduate, I am actually a pretty new rider in the last 3-4 years, and I think I could provide a fresh comparison on why a rider should choose a Harley(from a non-Harley rider)â¦. I am currently a rider of a Yamaha Road Star 1600 and before that a Honda Shadow(that I bought from a Harley dealership, I know, I know), my gut instinct is to avoid anything that is too popular among the masses, which is one of the main reasons I am not currently an owner of a Harley Davidson morocycle. I would like to have the option to provide a 12 week review of one of the bikes of your choice that is comparable to my Yamaha for my daily commuter vehicle and for me to detail my experiences, opinions, and feedback. These weekly updates would be brutally honest and would cover everything from overall comfort, sound, cool factor, steering, braking, rush hour advise, safety tips, etc. Again, I am no expert in the field, I am not the most experienced, I do not come from a prestigious literature degree, but I would love to have the opportunity to compare the 2 and write this article for you. Donât worry, if I am allowed this opportunity, I have no intentions of keeping the bike as I am not looking for any free rides as I would cover all operating costs during that 12 week period. Please let me know if you are interested. Thank you for your taking the time out of your busy schedule to read this.
