    so here's one:

    I have a 2001 Softail, recently I was asked if the bike was pre or post 9/11.

    The VIN numbers are all ok regarding year and model,
    I was curious if you could tell the production date
    from the serial number at the end.. it is 022231.

    Any way to check, or should I try the moco itself ?
    and who to call over there ? :s

    wow.. gulp :unsure

    no serious reason, just a few guys sitting around (EDIT) about
    this and that. We got on to the ages of the bikes and as soon
    as I said an '01, a guy popped out the question, and I couldnt answer
    him. Got me a little curious.

    We were also talking about that 747 flying low over NYC a couple of days
    ago, that might have prompted the reference.

    Most Europeans still dont get it.
