  1. That HOG sound – The rumble that is created when a Harley’s engine runs has been patented by the company || It is the unintended consequence of the engine’s staggered crankpins. When originally designed, it was state of the art technology. Of course, the Wright Brothers were still playing around at Kittyhawk at the time. During the ensuing decades, the original engine evolved, but the crankpin arrangement was retained. The “hog sound” was a marketing gimick and retained. It was not until 2002 that Harley Davidson at last produced an extremely limited production of a smooth firing V-Twin, the VRSCA V-Rod. Yuppies only (past the “Y” stage) need apply. (MAuppies ?)
