Perhaps because most other makers are making copies of Harley's V-Twin?

Usually saying that implies someone is in a bad mood. Where on earth do you get that from? I'm not cranky... just didn't get it and was hoping someone could enlighten me.
Guess not.
Or the other 2 posters who didn't get it..
Sorry.

Sorry about that. I was watching a history channel about the men who built America. They had a mention about Harley and Davididson fiddling with stuff as folks did back then to creat their own motorcycle company. I was thinking as it was saying this," I wonder what they called it, hmmmm, Suzuki?" Just thought it was funny like something might be in the old Leslie Nielsen movies some such.

It reminded me of the old joke about two Chineese guys , Pong and Ping each with pieces of wood batting a small ball back and forth. Pong hit it to Ping then back to Pong rhe Ping then Pong.. Ping ..pong .. They named it .....

"talble tennis" whistle

That's all

Remember the movie, Cave Man with Shelly Long and Ringo Star. Recall how after they got their backs straight they started discovering things. In doing so they named it weird names and there was a lone Asian in the bunch who kept disagreeing with the name. "No it's the 'Wheel' " . fire was one.

Similar to that. caveman one of my favorites.

Shucks, it had Shelly Long in it.
