Harley is in a bad spot no doubt and they have both put themselves there and done nothing to remedy the situation. I ride a lot of them at work and they are not bad bikes just not for me. I always look at the RoadKing as the original adventure touring bike. You see lots of old pictures of them on dirt roads. There must be something about them because they are about 50% of the US motorcycle market and every Japanese company plus a few others tries to emulate them. If HD had evolved the V Twin, the same way BMW has evolved the boxer I honestly believe they would be in a different place today having both the faithful and new people to sell to. I do get the lifestyle thing, not that I want any part of it regardless of brand. Its the same to me as the BMW people or the Ducatistis or whatever it is, they all drink their own KoolAid. What I will never understand is what skulls and motorcycles have to do with each other? How and why HD’s marketing/lifestyle dept does that make so sense to me and is a complete turn off. But that’s just me.
