I noticed in the picture with Elvis on his Harley they blanked out the H-D name plate on the tank.  :nixweiss:

Media is busy throwing dirt on Harley's grave and they haven't even been buried yet.  Some of us call that "piling on", no pun intended.

Elvis' guitar does not look fully secured, must not have been traveling that far.   8)

Its so sad when a company lets bean counters take over instead of real people that deal with the product every day. I think thats whats happening to Harley. The product is losing quality and their not listening to dealers and customers. I own a 17 CVO Limited and am having problems. My friends are trying to talk me into buying a Roadmaster Elite. If this trend keeps up Harley is done. SO SAD.

Hmmmmm. It seems to be working for Toyota, Nissan, Suburu, and others building cars right here in America. It is time we return the favor. Build them in their country and send the money back to the USA.
