Default How Harley-Davidson Killed Itself

As a lover of Harley Davidson I find this a shame. The iconic, classic, American Bike has been out-sourced and built in foreign countries. Their stock price is way down. Company lay-offs.. ect,.

The question really should be, 'Can Harley Davidson bounce back?' This video is worth a watch for any motorcycle enthusiest:

Thumbs down fuck H-D

Harley Davidson Inc sucks syphilitic cock, they have the worst customer service of any motorcycle manufacturer I know of. I hope they go tits up. These days I own 1 Harley Road Glide simply so I can keep my membership in a certain fraternal organization. My daily ride is a blacked out Ducati Monster while the hog leaks oil on my garage floor.

This might upset Garrett and some other people here, but I think Harleys are overrated, loud, obnoxious testosterone-mobiles like those big tricked-out 4X4 pickup trucks with all the bells and whistles. My dad rode a Triumph (can't remember the model) before I was born, but I don't think those are made anymore. And who wants to pay 50-grand for a damn motorcycle? These greybeards I see riding Harleys are not poor guys to afford those things. They are LARPers in my opinion, guys trying to recapture their lost youth, like the Hot August Nights geezers and their 1950s-60s cars. Like Hot August Nights, the Street Vibrations rally in Reno was cancelled this year due to corona, and the 24/7 noise and rumbling from thousands of bikes for several days about drives me insane, and I didn't miss it this year. My brother hates it so much he always plans his vacation specifically in September to get away from it.

Well if you own one, that means you liked them at one time. So did I. If I had the money and still lived in America I would own a custom. I see OCC is still going?! I'm supprised, but I always liked their work.

The fact that I own a HD doesnt mean shit to someone like you nigger, if you read my post I explained why I owned a hog.

You're the 'foreigner' that doesn't know how to spell or use a spellchecker on a US website you visit every day, eh?

Judging by your behaviour I doubt you have ever had a patch! You're probably a supporter of some no-name puppet club!!

Myself, British bikes; many British bikes; and my absolute favorites were the Vincents, Brough Superiors, and Nortons. My 850 Norton was the cat's ass.
