It is.I hope it's not just a sign of declining affluence.
You might be right about that. On CL, you see so so many Harleys. I often wonder when the time comes to sell mine if I will get anything near what it's worth.It is.
The number of people selling their big HDs because of "back problems" is directly correlated to the decline of their salaries/pensions/home values.
A sore back is easier to acknowledge than:
- I can't afford the payments,
- I can't afford the truck to haul it to Daytona or Sturgis, or the motel, if I ever got there.
- in fact I can't even afford the gas to get there.
They are gonna need some pipes for the sound, the ones we were riding were quiet... Could be something just for training however... They were outfitted with anti roll over bars as wellI like that the street retains Harley Davidson look and sound. It might do very well overseas where the look might be desirable but not the purchase and operating costs of traditional HDs.
Looks awfully familiar to me.They are gonna need some pipes for the sound, the ones we were riding were quiet... Could be something just for training however... They were outfitted with anti roll over bars as well

I think H~D is starting to realize that they are about to get their asses kicked by Victory on quality and price....and thinking people aren't buying what they are selling....just MO...but, the game has changed!
Belts ain't what they used to be...I have an 03 FXDL, had a Victory Touring bike, Polaris 700 twin with a belt, 2 snowmacines and even a Long Wing Challenger with a belt...they work. BTW, I do like the shaft drive on my l '81 Gold Wing...a fine bike by any measure.Personally I can't buy into the Harley thing. Owning two TW's a V twin and a goldwing I just don't care for belt drives. Same reason I have a honda quad, no belts. With a couple spare links and masters it is an easy fix in the boonies or the open road, it happens. Having to be towed or left in the outback is the pits.
