I thought the engineering difficulty was in getting them so loud your ears bleed, you know, for safety reasons.

That actually is a selling point sort of. One reason they don't sell well.

Harley has never been known to handle great. Not needed when central 'Murica is 20 mile straight roads.

My glide had the sprung soft pillow seat with shocks, bumpy roads made everything bounce but me

My brother-in-law's Honda GL1200 GoldWing was smoother than most cars. I rode it once, but I was slightly distracted as it was the first round trip with the girl who's my wife now in the passenger couch...

Flat boxer 4s are really smooth.

All that "loud pipes save lives" BS that becomes a nuisance for everyone else. The street where my apartment is located is quite busy, yet I don't hear much of any motorcycle other than Harley-Davidson ones with excessively loud pipes.
