Concord Purple Pearl
All models feature 5-speed transmission and Gates aramid fiber reinforced Poly Chain® belt final drive; 40mm constant velocity carburetor with enricher and accelerator pump (except Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection models); multi-plate clutch with diaphragm spring in oil bath; and twelve-month, unlimited mileage warranty.

(1) Measurement reflects 180 pound operator weight.  The bike sits lower with JMAC on board.

(2) Based on tests conducted under ideal lab conditions per U.S. E.P.A. test procedures. Your mileage will vary depending on weather conditions, trip length, vehicle condition, vehicle configuration, and  your personal riding habits, i.e., do you drive like a sensible person or a m***** f***ing madman.  Break-in mileage will vary.

(3) Availability of colors may vary from dealer to dealer, and is subject to change without notice.  JMAC's FLSTF is Concord Purple Pearl, at least for now.

(4) Recommended 91 octane or higher fuel (R+M)/2.  Considering that 91+ octane gasoline costs $1.50 or more per gallon, it's a good thing this puppy gets 40+ miles per gallon.  The cost of such fuel is a reason one sees so few Harleys on the road in Europe.  High octane gasoline is more expensive than platinum over there.

(5) Thanks to "green" thinking, taxes boost the cost of fuel in most of Europe to more than $4.00 per gallon.  They sell it by the liter so consumers won't realize how much they are being gouged.  This is a good reason NOT to elect Green Party candidates in the U.S.

How would you like to pay $5.00 per gallon knowing that about $3.50 of that is tax, confiscated from you at the pump and diverted to all sorts of pork barrel spending?  Think I'm kidding?  Look up how many bridges, toll roads, highways, etc., are named after Sen. Robert C. "King-of-Pork" Byrd (D-VA).  In 2002 Sen. Byrd sent $388 billion of YOUR tax dollars to his home state for such nonsense.  Here are some of my other favorites from 2002:

  • $50,000 for a tattoo removal program in San Louis Obispo, CA (Rep. Lois Capps,  D-CA)
  • $40,000 for Wild rice research in St. Paul, MN
  • $100,000 to VIVE La Casa in Buffalo, NY for services to refugees (from where?)
  • $100,000 to study the effects of rezoning Staten Island
  • $120,000 for potato breeding research (Idaho, of course)
  • $127,000 for education of older Hmong refugees in La Crosse, WI
  • $136,000 to a Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups, Madison, WI
  • $140,000 for development of a trolley system in El Reno, OK
  • $273,000 to combat "Goth Culture" in Blue Springs, Missouri
  • $400,000 for the Montana Sheep Institute (Sen. Conrad Burns, R-MT)
  • $400,000 for small fruits research in Oregon
  • $400,000 for exchanges to build linkages between American and foreign musicians
  • $740,000 for the National Soccer Center in Lancaster, CA
  • $750,000 for the design and construction of an International Tourism Center in Syracuse, NY
  • $500,000 for the Washington, D.C. Sports Commission and U.S. Soccer Foundation
  • $800,000 for Satsuma Orange research in Alabama
  • $800,000 to research red imported fire ants in Mississippi
  • $1,000,000 for sorghum research in Lubbock, TX
  • $1,000,000 to promote tourism in Kentucky
  • $1,000,000 for blister guard socks for the Army
  • $1,000,000 to promote children's literacy in New York City
  • $4,000,000 for research to control invasive weeds and arthropods (i.e., insects)
  • $4,000,000 for fertilizer-related research in Alabama
  • $451 million  in pork projects for Alaska courtesy of Sen. Ted Stevens (R).  That's $711 for every man, woman, and child in the state.  Quite a haul!
  • $14 million for the Hollings Marine Laboratory (Sen. Ernest "Fritz" Hollings (D-SC)

The list goes on, and on, and on.  If you've got a strong stomach, visit the Citizens Against Government Waste web sites and read their annual "Pig Book."  You will be amazed and/or disgusted at how billions of your tax dollars are wasted every year on absurd and self-serving projects.  Think about that and remember that between 40% and 50% of your earnings are being confiscated every year.

But I digress...
