Sing a long with............. "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean....My Bonnie Lies Over the Sea" !!! Or was it the famous Indian chief named Pontiac who really named it ??

Just funnin Bro !! Like everyone one else is. I would think Davidson would be a bit peaved to know most refer to the HD as a Harley Too. Pa
