I remember a few years ago H-D tried a sort of customizable Sportster program where you could order a bike with various options factory installed.
I felt years before that they should try it across the whole line with an option catalog at time of ordering a bike so that the new owner could get it truly the way they want it, at a reasonable price (hopefully) and when the bike arrives it would be just turn the key and ride experience.
I know the dealership looses money on modifying the new bike up front but feel it would eliminate some of the service backups some owners experience when they bring a bike in for repairs or maintenance and in the long run they could maintain a happy customer base that might be loyal.
The truly order it custom program would also decrease the inventory of parts need to stock by dealers or H-D and would have to save them money in the long run trying to figure in advance what the public likes and is willing to pay for.....

Harley appears to be getting ripe for a takeover.  As to who my guess is some foreign company with an eye on the American MC market for their product. Probably wrong, but HD is drifting no doubt & losing market share is very bad ju ju.
