Easy rider

The inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Arthur Davidson, died and went to Heaven.

At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur, 'Since you've been such a good man and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is, you can hang out with anyone you want in Heaven.'

Arthur thought about it for a minute and then said 'I want to hang out with God.'

St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room and introduced him to God.

God recognized
Arthur and said, 'Oh, so you're the one who invented the Harley Davidson motorcycle.'

Arthur said, 'Yep, that's me.'

God said, 'Well, what's the big deal in inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution and can't run without a road?'

Arthur was somewhat embarrassed, but managed to reply, 'Excuse me, Lord but aren't You the inventor of Woman?'

God said, 'Yes.'

'Well,' said
Arthur, 'professional to professional, You have some major design flaws in Your invention:

1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusions

2. It chatters constantly at high speeds

3. The directional controls leave a lot to be desired

4. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much

5. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust

6. And the maintenance costs are enormous.'

'Hmmmmm, you have some good points there,' replied God, 'It may be true that My invention is flawed, but according to My calculations, more men are riding My invention than yours.'
