    I actually feel they do get it. But nearly every time HD leaves the reservation it's not the success they may have wanted.

    Heck.....when they went with the water cooled heads....the feat of engineering wasn't the actual watercooled heads but how well they hid it.......little to no trace of it. Why?.......cause they know their customers

    I like it better than the original Street 750 but even with the changes it still says, SOA. Where's the street tracker version?

    Sixty-five horsepower pushing 525 pounds? Anchor Rod would be a better name. I don't see what market they are chasing with it.

    I have been wearing Ray Ban's since the '70's, still have my first pair as well as half a dozen others. They didn't build that clunker for me.

    The Harley market today is supported by baby boomers who's Mothers wouldn't allow them to have a bike when they were young, sales are dropping and will continue to do so as the boomers age. 10 years from now the glut of used Harley's on the market will make them a dime a dozen.
