Tough time to be trying to sell $18k motorcycles. Their biggest growth has been with the "lifestyle" crowd, once that market tightens up as their 401k's evaporate they'll be sitting on some expensive inventory. Of course the reverse is true too now the time to be buying if you can afford it, they're just about fire saleing '08's..

I saw a 2000 Dynaglide in the local ads for $8500 last week. Yikes! Things sure have changed in a short few months.

I heard of a new '08 Ultra going for $18k from the local HD joint over the weekend, that's what I paid for my ABS equipped Standard in July...

You might get that $2000 Evo yet !

They're dealing on '08's up here. Not giving them away but definately more wiggle room than we've seen since the early 80's
