The inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven.
At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur, "Since your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is that you can hang out in Heaven with anyone you want."
Arthur thought about it for a minute and then said, "I want to hang out with God." St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room, and introduced him to God. God recognized Arthur and commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented motorcycles, eh?!
Arthur said, "Yeah, that's me..." God commented, "Well, what's the big deal in inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution, and can't run without a road?!" Arthur was apparently embarrassed, but finally spoke.
"Excuse me, but aren't you the inventor of woman???" God said, "Ah, yes. "Well," said Arthur, "Professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention:
1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusion 2. It chatters constantly at high speeds 3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much 4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust 5. And the maintenance costs are outrageous!" "Hmmmm, you have some good points there..." replied God.
"It may be true that my invention is flawed, but according to my calculations, more men are riding my invention than yours!"

Hey, if we're going to have a go at Harley's, or there riders, here's my contribution:
A biker is riding by the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
A reporter has seen the whole scene, and addressing the biker, says Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life.
Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right. Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's papers will have this on the first page. What motorcycle do you ride? A Harley Davidson.
The journalist leaves. The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on first page:
BIKER GANG MEMBER ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH.
It's all FUN AND GAMES 'til the cops turn up ........ then it's HIDE AND SEEK!!
