Also there is a lot of inaccurate info. For example, the author assumes every police bike is an Electra Glide. There are photos of police Road Kings that are referred to as Electra Glides, etc. No knowledgeable person should ever confuse the two, it's a very obvious difference. There are other mistakes as well throughout the book.
the 73..He was very surprised and pleased..and I hated to give it up , but at my age..that was probably my last ride..I'll still listen for the Harley engine..and will probably order the book for myself one of these days..well worth the money.
If you are looking for accurate information on Harley-Davidson, there are many other books out there to consider. I would highly recommend anything you can find by Allan Girdler, particularly now that they back in print. The images in Harley Davidson Sportster are great and I love all the detail in Harley-Davidson Racing, 1934-1986.
In short there are a lot of great pictures but you need to research your own facts to go with them.
Perhaps earlier versions of the book didn't have the same problems, I get the feeling that the publisher paid some interns to do the 2010 update and only gave them a Google based research budget.
