New York -- Ed Kutler Jr., a personal injury lawyer, is upset with Harley Davidson over the image the company is selling, and that is the image of the motorcycle making you cool but yet an outlaw.
"Look at this add. This guy is a loner, but yet is done in a way that he looks cool. The ad leads you to think that if you own this product you too will be cool." Mr. Kutler. held up the add he found in Forbes Magazine.
"I should have actually checked to see if Harley sold the same ads in motorcycle magazines, because they don't use the same ads. In the motorcycle magazines they don't really advertise." Mr. Kutler added.
Mr. Kutler bought a Street Glide, because the guy in the ad was sitting on one. He also added straight pipes to it, because he thought the sound would just add to his coolness.
"The Douche (Kutler) bought a Harley and would let it idle in his driveway for about ten minutes before taking off. I don't know how many times he almost crashed trying to get that thing into second gear." Larry Boyd III, Mr. Kutler's neighbor, said.
The neighborhood got a petition signed that prevented Mr. Kutler from driving his Harley in their gated subdivision, so Mr. Kutler was forced to park his Harley at his brother-in-laws house.
"It just goes to show that owning a Harley isn't going to make you cool like the ad says, and that these expensive bikes are just one of the greatest marketing hypes to hit the world. That is why I am suing the company. I believe other people should be protected from such blatant lies." Mr. Kutler said.
Mr. Kutler wasn't sure if he would sell his motorcycle or keep it, but he did hope to put the factory pipes back on the motorcycle so he could drive it in his subdivision.
