Yeah, I was surprised to find an HD store in the tourist area of North Beach in San Francisco that sells only clothing. No bikes. WTH??

There's one like that in Eureka Springs, AR, too.

I'd venture to guess that HD makes WAY more profit on the stuff then they do the bikes.

Well, most times I say, "yeah, you have a beautiful bike."

With my Vulcan, I used to say, "couldn't afford one."

With my Concours I say, "they're too slow."

All three are true. Plus, I don't look good in pirate gear. Think it looks cool, but not on me ;-)

I make eyeglasses for a living. Harley Davidson is one of our more recent brands, and the company is making a big push because the signage is so recognizeable (and readily available). When we see someone (they seem to come in couples) come in dressed in their Garanimals, we know they're only interested in looking at one brand, and it's almost always true.

Funny thing, most frames have the country of origin labeling silk-screened on like the rest of the frame markings. HD frames have a tiny "Made In China" sticker applied. Presumeably so the consumer can remove it. Same with the case that comes with the glasses.

I got a set of HD frames that I got a few years ago that have an old prescription in them, and when I read this I pulled them out and look and sure enough on the inside of one of the arms in REALLY SMALL LETTERS is says "Made in China".
