Form vs. function

Back in the day, before Harley-Davidson improved the quality of their motorcycles, my buddies and I used to refer to those riders as choosing ‘form over function,’ or choosing style over reliability just because they like the look and sound of their ride.

Never mind breakdowns and incessant oil leaks that kept them on the side of the road. It was just cool to ride a Harley. We all get that. I remember attending a motorcycle rally and seeing a T-shirt that read: “If Harley-Davidson made an airplane, would you ride in it?”
