This is Our Family: Emmett’s Story

Why I didn’t listen to the naysayers and bought a Harley.

I would think most new Harley owners go through the same discussions and or battles with family, friends and social pressures as I did.
The purchase of my Harley has been the best decision in my life to date. A decision purely for me, a need to fill a void in my life for freedom, adrenaline, a status symbol that defines who I am and what I like, a want to not grow up and to not follow the sheep……..
The naysayers say don’t buy a Harley it’s dangerous, it’s expensive, you will look like a bikie scumbag, your neighbours will hate you, you will be hassled by the police, you will look like a guy going through a mid life crisis etc etc.

To me, all of the naysayers “don’ts” are exactly why I bought a Harley! I want to do something dangerous, I want to look like a scumbag because it’s how I feel most comfortable, yes, it is expensive and yes I deserve to spoil myself with an expensive present!! Also f@#& the man! If the man doesn’t like it, if the man wants to look down on me for my choice, the man can go f&@# himself & the horse he rode into town on because I’m going to do whatever the f!%$ makes me happy!!  My Harley makes me f#$%ing happy!!!

I know that I am a good person, that I am not a scumbag, I am educated with a university degree, that I have a positive impact on society, socially and financially through my business. I want to help make the world a better place for all to live in and not just myself, but I am also allowed to enjoy myself as I see fit. Riding a Harley is that one pleasure. That is why I didn’t listen to the naysayers and neither should you.

Since buying the Sportster “72”, I have been taken into the “our family” group that is Morgan & Wacker. Through M&W, I have made new friends with some rad people who I now ride with weekly. I have also formed a great relationship with the team at Morgan & Wacker on a Business level too and they now use my cleaning company to take care of their new showroom. This is truly what puts Morgan & Wacker ahead of the competition, helping me forge new friendships and also helping my business grow. I owe so much to M&W for helping change the last two years of my life for the better.

With the help of Morgan & Wacker, I have recently upgraded to a Streetbob, a sign that I am now hooked for life!

If you are thinking of buying a Harley, just f@#$ing do it! It’s risen above & beyond my hopes and dreams as to what I thought it would be like. Put simply as they say, a freedom machine.
