Default Context matters.

When I hang out with Harley people, it's a Harley. When I hang out with Buell people, it's a Buell. When I hang out with motorcycle people who haven't even heard of Buell, it's a cool niche bike. When I hang out with people who don't even know about motorcycles, really, it's cool. What else matters? Oh, right, when I'm buying parts, whether it's a Harley or not depends on the part. When I'm riding it, though, it's just a blast (pun intended).
