"I don't see Mr. Honda anywhere."



If by this comment you are implying that the Japanese companies don't do research at cruiser events, you are wrong. How do you thnk it is that all the companies read into to market and produced performance cruisers all within 6 months of each other and H-D?

You've got me wrong, i never said that they weren't a good business, nor a successful one. I just state the fact that they are big business, and with that go certain universal truths, to think otherwise would be naive.

Default Take 2 One more time longride.

His questions were:

Question:
[*]What makes a person want a Harley?


[*]What's the deal - Why are less expensive, more reliable Japanese imitations of inefficient (high displacement, low power, poor handling) technology subject to such vehement criticism?




You never answered his questions directly. You only went on to say that all motorcycle purchases are based on emotions thing. Then you brought the Goldwing up. Lets try it again. Given that motorcycles are purchased with discretionary income. Why would you purchase a Harley when superior cheaper Japanese bikes exist? P.S. Like a the guy said you had 80,000 miles on your Wing. If you would of had 80,000 miles on your Harley would you have still sold it for 95% of its orginal value. I don't think so. At least not to me.

Reagan voice "There you go again" Look at my take 2 post and respond with something intelligent please. Perhaps you are already suffering from buyers remorse on the Harley.
