Harley Davidson today announced that it will begin production on a more environmentally friendly motorcycle.  


Citing Harley’s already impressive mileage figures, a spokesman for the American icon said that Harley felt they could “make the most impact by using renewable resources in the construction of the motorcycle itself.”

The spokesman went on to describe the bike as a fusion of San Francisco sensibilities with Alabama know how.

Asked about the inspiration for the design, the spokesman said, “Well, we had some old pallets lying around, and one of the boys says, ‘Hey, wood comes from the environment.'”
