First published in 1994, Harley - The Ultimate Machine rapidly established itself as a definitive work on the world's most famous motorcycle maker. Skilfully blending rare historical archive pictures, specially commissioned colour studio portraits of landmark models, lifestyle pictures of riders, Harleys and the open road, and quotes and reminiscences from people in the know, it provided a gloriously rounded picture of a company that is so much more than just a motorcycle producer. It succeeded in getting behind the magic of the Harley Davidson brand name and explaining why the Harley lifestyle has come to represent something quintessentially American. Now updated and expanded to take account of the very latest developments, this 200-page edition of Harley - The Ultimate Machine focuses especially on what has been happening with the new models for 2000 and 2001. The big news is the release of an 88-inch V-twin engine called the Twin Cam 88 which has replaced the 80-inch Evolution as the power plant for all Harley's big twins. It also looks forward to 2003 when Harley-Davidson will celebrate a special anniversary - 100 years in the business.

This illustrated guide is packed with interesting facts and follows the history of the famous Harley-Davidson company and the development of its famous bikes, which have earned a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts everywhere. The story dates from 1903 when Bill Harley and the Davidson brothers, with no thought of fame or fortune, decided to build a motorcycle that really worked. So successful was it, that it led to the gradual formation of a company that has survived through good times and bad. Through good times and bad, losing and winning back police contracts, as well as weathering various other vicissitudes, the company has achieved lasting success. In the end, Harley-Davidson came to the ultimate decision of giving its customers what they really wanted, not by providing year-on-year innovations, but by remaining true to the Founders' original concept. The result, as everyone knows, are bikes of mythic status, imbued with a mysterious quality of their own and generating a passion in enthusiasts amounting almost to a love affair. The name has come to personify America and is up there alongside Coca-Cola, Ford and McDonald's. The bikes are described in detail, not only in mechanical terms, but also with glorious photographs, and will be of interest to everyone who loves motorbikes: even aficionados of Japanese and European bikes, who have never even ridden a Harley-Davidson, will be able to recognize the unique marriage of style and nostalgia and the fact that there are no other bikes quite like them.

It’s no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley riders’ tight leather garb? What’s it like to live a dual life as a philosophy professor who wrenches his own 1965 Electra Glide? Would Jesus hang out in a biker bar or a coffeehouse? And more importantly, would He ride a Harley or a Honda? These witty, provocative essays give readers and riders a new appreciation of what it means to become one with the road.

Richard Owen and Laura Brooks are co-developers, along with Reichheld, of the methodology behind answering the question. In this book, Owen and Brooks tell how based on a variety of real case studies' to actually embed Net Promoter discipline in organizations of all types.
