Climb Aboard Harley’s Lovely Cliché

Harley-Davidson Inc. has hired supermodel Marisa Miller to promote the V-Rod Muscle, a motorcycle aimed at a younger, hipper demographic than Harley’s traditional customer base.
The V-Rod Muscle is a sporty, sleek bike introduced this year. It has a long, low profile inspired by drag racing and an engine that was co-developed with Porsche, the German sports car maker.
“It’s a totally unique motorcycle for us, designed to attract a younger and nontraditional customer,” Harley-Davidson spokesman Paul James said. “The bike is definitely a supermodel as well. There’s a definite strength and athleticism in that image.”

    Wow, what is the music behind this piece? It is the smelliest piece of dung I have heard in a very long time… since the Kid Rock Nation Guard spot…. P U! What happened to backing a quality product with quality?

    Using internet is simple as hell. But I can tell y ou right now, it can be very hard, if you are the first time user.
    So, first thing I suggest – open the Explorer, and type in the address you like.
    You’ll get there really fast, it depends on your connection speed.
    Good luck.
