Happy for ya man!

I agree, dump the poser part of your tagline. But I strongly disagree with changing it to Harley Owner. It is not about ownership, as if anyone with the bucks would understand.

You own a Harley to ride. Note in this sentence that "ride" is ruled a noun while the term "own" is ruled a verb. Let's look at the verb first shall we?

A word that characteristically is the grammatical center of a predicate and expresses an act, occurrence, or mode of being, that in various languages is inflected for agreement with the subject, for tense, for voice, for mood, or for aspect, and that typically has rather full descriptive meaning and characterizing quality but is sometimes nearly devoid of these especially when used as an auxiliary or linking verb.

So while the verb "own" is cool and does add to, through agreement with the subject ( noun "ride" ) for tense towards mood, it still is not the subject ( noun to "ride" ) and therefore not the "meat" of the damn point in getting a fuckin bike.
