Just between rooms and Air Force 1 thats 16 million and thats without even counting his 45 cars and the shipping costs, flights of his 1000 people, meals, entertainment, security and military personal and you dont believe its going to cost 200 million. HAHAHA
    Sorry dude, I never just believe something because its looking like its going that way. And I'm still gonna need a source for all that you've said.

    Whats with you people not being able to read? I put the link up already for the cost to stay at the Taj. Air Force 1 operating costs are easily found. Get off your butt and find out for yourself if you dont believe me because I am not going to babysit your through this whole thing.

    This doesn't tell me anything. Its just a website for hotel booking. I don't need to know what I'd be paying I need to know what the President is paying, plus I'm not even sure I'm looking at the right hotel. You have to prove your statements, not demand I prove them false.

    Also what military experience? I'm a US Army logistican and I've never heard of a 10 hour flight costing 1.3 million fuel costs.

    The standard is to present your evidence, you don't have to respond instantly go compile it. I'll be here, and I will look at it.

    Or have they recanted...?

    I will believe it when Obama will give real figures instead of spinning and avoiding saying what the cost is.

They are overpriced, overweight and still overrated.

    Now, that said, there's nothing wrong with owning a Harley. To each their own and if that's what you enjoy, then by all means buy as many Harley's as you can afford. Harley has stumbled on a business model that works for them and certain bikes are even beautiful and I'd almost venture to call them works of art, but let's not confuse that big, heavy piece of rolling chrome with the true technical advancements that are being made by other manufacturers.

    Now, let's get back on topic, shall we?

    So you'll believe an unbacked source until a real source tells you what's the truth? How about simply beliving its an unknown?

    That is old school. I have owned several none leaked oil or smoked. The one I just bought and put on Vance and Hines pipes is putting out 70 horsepower. Not bad for a stock bike except for custom pipes.

    HD quality has increased dramatically over the last 20 years, the fit and finish of their bikes are top quality, but the technology it uses is very very dated. It does not compete with BMW or the Japanese makers on technology becaus it cant, it competes on image and build quality

    Obama denies it yet does not say what the cost is. That makes me believe the figure is not that far off.

    How is revealing the cost a security risk?

    Yet other Bikes imitate Harley's. nice spin but for ride and comfort I will take my HD anyday.

    Little Big V-Twins Comparison Test - Motorcycle Cruiser Magazine

    The Fattening of America

    The Fat Boy might be considered the prototype for this entire class, and certainly Harley's competitors would love to have such a successful motorcycle, especially one that has been selling as well as the Fat Boy has for over a decade. Powered by Harley's dual-counterbalancer, twin-cam, 1450cc air-cooled twin with a clean Softail frame wrapped around it, the Fat Boy epitomizes that particularly American wide, fat look. Although it retains distinctive features such as disc-style cast wheels and that shotgun-style exhaust configuration, competitors have frequently sought to imitate other parts of its make-up, from the chunky 16-inch wheels wrapped with full fenders to the tank-top instruments, covered fork legs, the fork nacelle backing the headlight, the chrome airbox alongside the engine, the floorboards, the hidden-shock rear suspension and the low, wide saddle. Although it comes up short in a few areas such as a mere single front brake disc, the current-generation engine and chassis make an impressive functional package, too.


    The Fat Boy's unique disc wheels can cause some side-wind issues. Our test unit had an accessory headlight and other goodies.

    Harley-Davidson Fat Boy

    High Points
    # Huge accessory selection from huge number of companies
    # Comfy
    # Good cornering clearance for a big cruiser

    Low Points
    # There's one on every corner
    # Very pricey
    # Unimpressive brakes
