From the very superficial article:

But, I still believe if the company keeps forging ahead in this direction, it will fare better than competitors.

This is far suggesting they’ve righted the ship. Further the article suggests that 24% growth in Q2 was something fantastic.  It isn’t.  The economy was shut down in Q2 2020.

If I am reading the article correctly, sales were up 43% for Q2 in North America and up 24% globally for last quarter. ANY sales growth in North America is a win for them since they had been in a spiraling decline. For those of us long term riders/buyers, I welcome the news that HD is experiencing sales growth domesticlly and will remain in business for the foreseeable future. For the last several years, the future looked bleak. Hopefully this a sign of things to come and not just a momentary blip of good fortune. Time will tell.
