Default Re: Motorcycles enjoy greatest popularity since '70s

Just in from a blazing run on the DKW Hobby -even faster than the Runpet!, but not as retro as the Heinkel Tourist - to see this.



I suppose the article was pretty ok. Didn't get too much too wrong which itself is a small miracle. But I was under the impression that there was no mystery whatsoever what happened to sales in the mid-late 80's. Us Boomers were buying houses, clawing our way up the corporate ladder, starting businesses & families, etc. Soon as we got the "bidness" under control we came back with a vengeance. Thus the rise in sales + we have - er - introduced the kids, nephews, etc., to our errant ways.

"Easy Rider"... bleah. I ride in spite of that movie. Yeah, a movie about going less than 40 mph on highways on the most uncomfortable looking bikes ever, while being harassed, attacked, and finally killed supposedly created a 'binge of motorcycle buying'? Allrightythen.

Wifie and I tried to watch "Easy Rider" the other night - in a fit of nostalgia.



It was as out of style as spats & prince-nez glasses.

Can you explain why European motorcycle shops are better than those in the USA? I have not had the opportunity to visit the region.
