Re: Harley Davidson says "screw fuel mileage"
Just to see for myself, I followed the link visible on the image you have captured in your post which leads to a page on the Harley-Davidson web site. The text there is different than what the image you have shows. I'll quote it:
"America, please don't buy a Harley because it gets 50mpg
History has shaped this tank. not the whims of foreign oil
American workers pour their soul into it. Let's fill the tank
That gives back more than we put in. So, screw it, let's ride"
I'm not reproducing the text art effects, image of tank, H-D logo and copyright and additional non relevant text due to space, relevancy and message editor limitations.
My only interest here is accuracy. I have no idea where the image in your post came from, but it seems to have been subject to image editing/manipulating.
Oh, BTW, I did browse through the H-D site looking for another copy image and/or web page that duplicated what you have posted, but was unable to locate anything other than the page as listed above. This slogan and image appear to be part of a 2008 marketing campaign related to the 105th H-D anniversary.
Hope all is well with you and yours, Jeff.
