I dont say anything.I have owned 2 harleys.it does no good to argue with a die hard harley fan.harleys are designed to fail.Planned obsolescence.More money for them.less riding time for you.

Bikeless and hating it.

I am always told that Harleys are American and that AMERICAN is the best...I reply that mine is an Allie bike and that ALLIE bikes are incredibly reliable and very affordable. It may not seem strong, but they always walk away with a strange look that implies MAYBE I'm actually on to something!
One time I asked this question...
American women are gorgeous, NO DOUBT, BUT how do they treat a man? How do Japanese women treat their men? My girl (Bike) is Japanese, THEREFORE she treats me GREAT!!!

One thing you will never see.A guy that owns a harley trying to make his bike look and sound like a kawasaki.A friend of mine and i who are senior citizen riders have both owned harleys,one I had incredible amounts of money in,he had over $25,000 in his.Both were beautiful,both were comfortable,both had great sound, but they both needed expensive repairs more than once.Even though i had warranty as did he, it gets expensive even paying the copay but more problematic and irritating is the down time with no bike.And if you break down in claude texas, or bumfuk michigan what you gonna do? Jap bikes could do that also, but statistically they do that much less often than harleys.Thats my 2 cents.

Bikeless and hating it.

I can certainly speak at the dealership level that their motorcloths are quite profitable, especially in higher traffic stores. As well as parts and accesories.Used bikes though are mission critical at the dealership level.

I am a CPA and the firm I worked for last had a bunch of HD dealerships as clients so I have spent a lot of time with their books.

I usually say one of these:

"a fool and his money......"
"do-rags look stupid on my head"
"nice bike...was your outfit financed too?"

I wish I could kiss my mom(RIP) for making the decision to not train me to dress myself with garanimals so I could someday handle it on my own.

I have been a life long Kawasaki fan since I was about 4 or 5 and surprisingly I do not own a single t-shirt, jacket, gloves, tattoo, toothbrush or overpriced limited edition pickup with green K's all over it.
