HD have done what the British motorcycle industry did and buried it’s head in the sand shouting “lalalalalalalalalalala” with it’s fingers in it’s ears. The crazy thing is that was the death or British bikes back in the day, however for HD it has been it’s USP, it relied on the patriotism of the yanks and (am sure Pearl Harbour helped) it paid off. Now they are rich men’s toys and what non bikers think of when folk mention motorbikes.

They are now so overpriced (at least outside of America) that they have become a mythical beast and those that can afford them either don’t know better or are too scared to admit they are not worth the money.

flip the coin

I have actually ridden a Harley and lusted after a couple of them. I can’t ride one though because I am not green and don’t advertise tinned peas, they are just not the right dimensions for a UK rider IMO, I actually had to think about going up in cc to be able to ride one as the forward pegs just don’t fit me.
