I've never been a fan of Harley's. I ride my Vn750 because it can never be mistaken for a Harley.
Overall, Harley's problem isn't taxes. The company is spread way too thin. By that I mean they're trying to be all things to all people and have a zillion different types of bikes. They cannot sustain this too-wide variety without causing massive issues with their suppliers and the manufacturing lines. Its too complicated.
If Harley still exists 10 years from now I'll bet they significantly cut down on the types of bikes they make. Look at Ford. They're about to stop making most of their types of cars for sale here in the US because its not financially worth making them.
As for all of these younger guys that love sports bikes, lets see what they want to ride 30 or 40 years from now.
