Is this fear?? We saw other bikes (sport style) and she was fine, but both instances where she's reacted has been harleys?
Did she react when she first heard the bike or when she first saw it?

Sounds more to me like she has a negative association with the Harley style bike, not loud sounds . Does the shelter have any information of her background that may suggest a previous incident w/a Harley ie chased/hit by one, previous owner/former neighbour had one etc?

Congrats on the adoption btw
