Glock Motorcycle

Glock gave this away yesterday at their SHOT show party:

I can’t really see the detail from the angle the picture is at, but the only thing that looks “Glock” about it to me is the color.   They could have at least make it boxy and put some groves on it like slide serrations, made the exhaust looks like a barrel, matted the engine block etc…

This is where I predict the content of the comments:

  • “Can it sneak through airport metal detectors?”
  • “Does it backfire (kaboom!) from time to the time?”
  • “Is it mostly plastic?”
  • “Is it uncomfortable as hell to ride?”
  • “Does it refuse to rust and beat the 1911 model motorcycles in every aspect but old world appeal?”  <— I know no one would say this but me haha

Matte black really does it for me!  My dream car is a Matte black Lamborghini Aventador, with matte black rims, and a black leather/suede  interior.    Or as we say, “black on black on black”.

Thoughts?  Any of you bike guys know the model they used?

It’s a Harley-Davidson Softail.

Quote from Tom Foster “I am converting a 2012 “Blackline” Softail into one of my two-wheel terrors for Glock Firearms to giveaway at the “Shot Show” in Vegas in January,” Tom said. “It’s sponsored by CCI, Heartland, and Vance & Hines. I worked a great deal with Ernie Snair at Glendale Harley on the Softail.”

Meh. Grip angle is wrong on the handlebars.

:D

Will they be doing a voluntary recall on the bike shocks this September?

I assume that Springfield will be making one as well. That one won’t turn on unless you’re sitting on the beavertail seat.

Does it compare to my Croatian plastic cutouts?

Did the person who won it take it apart and polish all the surfaces before riding it?

Does it start first time, every time, rain or shine? Or do you have to send it in to a bike shop to be torn down and modified so it can feed certain types of gasoline?

“Does it refuse to rust and beat the 1911 model motorcycles in every aspect but old world appeal?”

But yeah, agree it could’ve looked more GLOCK-y.

Did somebody buy a bike with corporate money and got fired?

If they wanted to make it a glock bike, it shouldent have an ignition, just don’t hit the accelerator unless you mean it. :)

They didn’t bring Sharon Dillon back to ride it? Too bad…

glocks suck, always double action bullshit. you gotta have single action. and the safe system is crap. ok drop it it wont shoot but if any person gets there hands on it they can shoot. since yall say you have to carry one in the chamber. dumb. if a person that dont know shit about my gun gets it they cant shoot it cause they wont know to turn off the safety, all ya gotta do with a glock is pull the trigger dumb

Glocks are single action only, also there are other pistol with no external safety, and those also do not have the trigger safety.

The only other Glock thing is that towards the front it says Glock or at least thats what it seems to say.

I’m just waiting for the commercial where some guy breaks into R. Lee Erney’s garage and he’s sitting on it and turns to the camera and says ‘Sumbodah picked the wrong garage!’

Of course the bike doesn’t look very glock-ish. If they gave the bike the same styling as the gun it would be ugly as sin and no-one would want it even for free. Only guns can get away with being shit-brick ugly.

Selling it for spare parts would still earn some money.

Ehhhhh…. I would never get used to the grip angle on those handlebars.

Ugh, got scooped. My bad.

Where is the “bitch seat” you know, because it’s from Glock right?
If you put in high grade fuel does it blow up? *cackles*

Can you buy a 33 gallon fuel tanks for it?

Wonder who the genius is who thought a Harley would be appropriate to build a Glock tribute out of? I guess next will be a 1911 tribute Hayabusa?

The guy who commented earlier about making it something that someone wanted to ride, was spot on. This has way more class than some lame “theme” bike that no self-respecting knowledgeable motorcycle enthusiast would be seen riding. It’s a solid stock HD that they modified with a brand new read end, pipes, intake, accessories and a kick as matte on gloss paint job. Does a Ford F150 Harley Davidson edition have exhaust pipes on the side to look like a Harley? F&#k no. I look at this like an HD Softail, Glock edition. I’d ride the hell out of this bike.

Meh, I’m not much of a cruiser guy. Superbikes are where its at! (As Mike clearly saw in a photo sent to him by yours truly.) It does look pretty damn cool, but if they wanted to mimic the appeal of Glock reliability, they should have NOT used a Hardley-Ableson. A KTM would have been much more fitting. The fact that KTM is also made in Austria is just icing on the cake.
