The Questionable Success of Harley

Evaluating two motorcycle manufacturer’s products, Honda and Harley, uncovers a problem with marketing driven economics and its ability to inflate demand beyond reasonable expectation, promote a culture of inevitable disappointment, reward social vandalism, misuse significant talent and distort the principle of free choice:

Honda motorcycles are quiet, efficient, comfortable, engineering masterpieces. Harley thumpers, conversely, are headache loud, fuel hungry, body pounding, uninspired marketing fabrications. There should be no completion here. So, why would anyone willingly insist on less than the best? If this were the only example mass wasted pursuit, it might be dismissed as a social quirk, but, to be fair, the same thing can be said about electing Bush or watching Jersey Shore.
