- That dealers don't know anything about the bikes they sell is no
surprise to me. When I was trying to decide between a Vrod or
Superglide the salesman had no idea what it took to adjust the
valves on the Vrod or knew anything about the engine. In the end I
went with the SG because I was more familar with that sort of
Re the carb Bonnies I suspect it has to do with them being made in
Thailand and since the bikes they produce are not sold in Europe but
