Korean commercial for Harley Davidson Motorcycles

I could not resist posting this, particularly knowing now that my birth father has owned a Harley for over 18 years.

I've always associated Harleys with middle-aged white men. (I don't mean this as a socio-political statement, and obviously this commercial shows that Harleys appeal to some other demographics of which I was not aware--besides, I've always liked Harleys myself, and I'm obviously not a middle-aged white man. Ha.) But because of that association in my mind, seeing this commercial just was not quite what I expected. I never knew Harleys appealed to this demographic. But I dig it :)

Just click on the title of this post, and it will take you to the commercial on YouTube.

You don't see many Korean dreadlocks these days...:)
I tried it once but my hairs are too thick and smooth and wouldn't stay in their assigned locks. Bad hair!

While in Korea last year driving down the highway in a large tour van we were passed by a large group of "hogs" out for a ride. We laughed, because we also thought of Harleys as a middle aged white guy thing. It was such an "All American" sight to us that seeing that group in Korea made us laugh and then think a bit differently.

LOL. Toni, I felt the same amazement as did you when I realized what a young, hip, fun Korean Harley subculture there is in Korea.

My Appa is a hardcore Harley rider and lover.
