Harley closing factories?
« on: August 25, 2018, 12:35:54 PM »

Harley Davidson is Closing Plants Due to Declining Sales. Apparently, the Baby-Boomers all have motorcycles,and Generation X is only buying a very few, and the next generation, the Millennial's, aren’t buying any at all.

A recent study was conducted to find out why?

Here are the reasons why Millennials don't ride motorcycles, and why sales are down:
1.  Pants won't pull up far enough for them to straddle the seat.
2.  Can't get their phone to their ear with a helmet on.
3.  Can't use 2 hands to eat while driving.
4.  They don't get a trophy and a recognition plaque just for buying one.
5.  Don't have enough muscle to hold the bike up when stopped.
6  Might have a bug hit them in the face and then they would need emergency care.
7.  Motorcycles don't have air conditioning.
8.  They can't afford one because they spent 1to2 years in college trying to get a degree in Humanities, Social Studies or Gender Studies for which no jobs are available.
9.  They are allergic to fresh air.
10. Their pajamas get caught on the exhaust pipes.
11. They might get their hands dirty checking the oil.
12. The handle bars have buttons and levers and cannot be controlled by touch-screen.
13. You have to shift manually and use something called a clutch.
14. It's too hard to take selfies while riding.
15. They don't come with training wheels like their bicycles did.
16. Motorcycles don't have power steering or power brakes.
17. Their nose ring interferes with the face shield.
18. They would have to use leg muscle to back up.
19. When they stop, a light breeze might blow exhaust in their face.
20 It could rain on them and expose them to non-soft water.
21. It might scare their therapy dog, and then the dog would need therapy.

Think about it, if the above was true..."Who raised them to be that way?"

Also remember they will be the ones deciding your health care/nursing home , so be kind... :huepfenlol2:

Did not mention that a motorcycle is not considered a "Safe Space."

And # 23.  Living in Mom and Dad's basement with no job does not allow the resources to purchase anything past a personal data device.  :)
