So,

do we get a deal on Harley swag now?




... would they let you ride up and down those stairs, or would that be like a death sentence in that country?
That would be my kind of urban trial terrain :cool:
shit, thats batu caves. spent lots of time there. rode my triumph out there numerous times.

it was pretty laid back but they would frown on you riding up the steps. there were other caves though that had been abandoned that nobody would mind.

I find myself looking more and more at a HD.

Getting old.

It's not just for the old........there is a massive youth presence in dealerships.....they're flocking there in droves.

It's funny.....when Honda redesigned the 2018 Goldwing they did it with a younger crowd in mind....trying to win over younger buyers with a new sleeker modern high tech platform....but the kids are at the Harley dealerships buying basically the same bike their grandpa's purchased in the 60s ...and their fathers in the 80's & 90's....the Sportster.

Well. I could only take three months of "Harley mania".

Started as a "sales Professional" (of which I respected), the "management" changed our roles (three of us...the entire crew), changing our titles to "fit specialist" and changing our pay plan from 12% of gross profit to a flat 150.00 a bike.

Kinda took the wind out of my sails. So, I found a nice little Yamaha/Kawasaki/Polaris dealer and made the switch.

I've written as much business in a week as I did in my entire time selling those decrepit ponderous bits of American elephants in three.

I'm back to normal...I'm not a good fit with Hardley.

Four seasons of toys and actual advances in design how can that compete with vintage motorized lazyboys.
