If you were waiting for an A-hole to check in, the top one just did. It's amazing that someone could be that clueless for this long.

Check out the photo captions in longride's Yellowstone article and your question should be answered.

I don't own a Harley, but I admire what they've done and love the fact that an American company has fared so well against the Japanese. Nonetheless, let us recall that a couple years ago, dotcoms that had never made a dime saw their stock prices going through the roof. Many said we were in a "new economy" that would never go away. Where are those people now? Unfortunately, Harley's bubble will eventually burst, probably within the next year. Then I'm gonna git me that FLHT I always wanted for $12K.

Default I hope so because....

....we're all lined up right behind you!



The only problem is that we've been waiting for Harley's bubble to burst for about 20 years now. It's worse than waiting for bread in a Soviet Supermarket.

Most of those bikes are being sold for more than when they are new. I'd love to see what that Sporty looks like! LOL

You never heard that rumor?



Back in the early 70's I used to visit Dean Lanza's custom shop in LA. He'd built one of the bikes used in Easy Rider and always had some nice choppers for sale. He claimed that he got ahold of old panheads and knuckleheads by travelling in the Midwest each fall and always found some old bikes in decent shape for cheap.



I think that they are all snapped up by now. Or those farmer's who, contrary to popular belief, aren't the least bit dumb are charging what the market will bear like everyone else.

The key to their continued success seems to be the foreign market. As much as people hate our foreign policy, they love our culture, and nothing symbolizes it more than an H-D. If they have four more record quarters, I will eat all my words, sell my Triumph, buy a Harley, and become a member of the faithful.

Your comparason to dotcoms is silly. They never produced a product and you say yourself that "dotcoms that had never made a dime saw their stock prices going through the roof." Harley is not only making the "dime". but also produces an actual product. Dotcoms were a whim, much like your FLHT dream! LOL
