It seems they really target the taste of the new riders.

New riders? I only see older people riding Harleys :jester:

We are the only ones who can afford them.

It's not just about the price tag. At least where I live, younger folks have been more mindset toward 4-cyl motorcycles. I actually prefer parallel-twins, since they tend to have a better cooling than Harleys.

But anyway, since most Harley buyers tend to be quite conservative, and it retains a cult-following even in export markets exactly because of its :quote: outdated :quote: look, an attempt to make them look hi-tech doesn't seem to be the right move.

uh...you have a sportster...that's not a hardtail. unless you have a bike i'm forgetting about.

as far as them dropping the dyna, i'm super pissed, as that will be my second bike at some point. So...the M8 engines are some great tech, but Softails handle like shit. i *highly* doubt they made the new softail handle as good as the dynas.

That they kept the dyna models and tried to make them softails is just bullshit. their "Facebook Live" style reveals with mediocre models and d-list celebs going all fanboy-girl was the icing on the cake. I need to go buy the Lowrider S that's been languishing at my dealership now.

Also: 114cu in = 1868cc. you are bad at math. :D

Surely, that doesn't surprise you............. :D2 :lol:

He earned the name Brain, damnit!

To be fair I calculated the 107 and not the 114, you asshole... :lol:

Anyone that is in business for themselves can not suck at math... :Duh:

You're breaking down barriers, Brain! :brain:
