You can shear a sheep a hundred times but you can only gut him once.

Very true.  Many dealers need to learn this.  Luckily, where I do business, they know this.

And that's what they have been counting on for many years.  The Boomer's made it easy for them; time will tell if following generations will be so easy to abuse. 

The fact is that in a free market system a seller is free to charge whatever they want.  It's up to the potential buyers to rein in the excesses by having the self discipline to say NO and walk away.  For way too long the buyers of Harley's had no self discipline and voluntarily allowed themselves to be bent over a barrel.  As I've mentioned before on this site, Harley-Davidson has never had a product for sale that I couldn't live without.  Obviously that hasn't been the case for many people.
