Wonder if they will come with a boom box, coupled to a thumb-drive loaded with the Harley 'rumble', synced to the speed of the bike, or a 'rev' button you can use when stopped? :0)

No.
They're expected to come with a deck of playing cards and some clothes pins.

Can't blip the throttle when standing still... that's why most people buy Harley's.

You can always do this when standing still, or sitting at a light.

I immediately thought he must have over tightened it, and fried them.
But he said inside the hub, there were no cups or races, just a handful of loose bearings inside.
He's afraid to ride it now.

Makes me wonder, is this some new fangled way to do bearings?
Just throw a bunch inside a hub, close it up and call it good?

Or did the old man screw up his bike?
Same thing happened with a bike I bought from Costco, I took it back.
