    I think what IFT is saying is sales are down at his dealer by 40% compared to last January. Maybe last January they sold 20 bikes and inclement weather this January they only sold 12?
    Harley is also fighting the trend of the rich getting richer and leaving everyone else with less discretionary income.
    A good long ride can transport me from where I am to who I am.

    The salesman claims sales are down almost 40 percent for 2017 thats a massive change in one season maybe the new models will hellp they dont seem to be selling so far BUT HD is discounting knocking $5000 off the big baggers but it seems the public is bored with the same old overpriced low performance geezer glides

    Neville Lush says he can get 200HP out of the t/bird.

    As I left the HD dealer with my friends a few weeks back, the salesman said maybe next time I can sell you a Harley. I said maybe, if it can make 150hp at the rear wheel off the floor and cost the same as an R3. He knew that's impossible.
