Bleak outlook.  Suppose in one respect there is a silver lining - there will be fewer 2019 bikes for HD to recall in 2020 because the sales numbers will be lower.

Stock down to 33 today from a 52-wk high of 56.  Brutal.  Bad customer service and sumping engines isn't going to help matters.

Just received a message from the dealer here in Spokane that the show room floor is full of new bikes and wanted to know if I was still interested in getting a new Bike because they believe they have the new CVO Ultra Limited with the 117 engine I asked about.
I haven't been there sense July!

Yes it is Joel.  Not good for the dealer service departments though, since that has become a big part of their operation over the past few years.

Any time I stop by a dealer lately seems the service department is packed and the showroom is empty.

When I do see people in the showroom, they just appear to be looking and not buying much.

This US HD Sales chart says it all. I anticipate 4th Qtr 2018 to have even worse sales numbers than the 3rd Qtr.

It could be a reflection of the economy and consumer confidence. How are other bike makers doing? Are sales steady or rising for Honda, Kawasaki, and Indian?

I had heard on Fox Business news earlier this morning that Consumer Confidence is at 98%.
