I got one also.  Made me wonder if the local dealer would really let me take a new bike out for a test ride considering the depth of the snow and ice on the roads this weeks?   ???

Typical H-D.   :confused5:

Nothing here and I own tow da** bikes :confused5:

Not that it would make any difference.  I am waiting until the discounting starts.  I saw an add where one dealer is discounting his 2008's 20% off and his 2009's 10% off MSRP.  Can't remember if it was local to DFW or not.

The prices will come down.  As others have mentioned, the credit crunch is hitting them hard, based upon their portfolios.

Local dealer here has a new Heritage Softail sitting on the floor and they are lowering the price $100.00 per day until the bike sells.  I'm waiting to see if it gets low enough that I can trade the wife's sportster for in even up for it.   ;)

I got one.  Rather expensive looking piece of paper and plastic.  Reminded me of the Mac commercial where they talk about Microsoft spending money on advertising and nothing on fixing Vista.  Mine went into the recycle bin.

As for ever offering a 7 year ESP, remember how long HD had a 6-month warranty when everyone else had one or two years?  Then when everyone else has two or more they upped it to a year?  They know better than to warranty their stuff that long.

Nah, thanks though.  My winter TP stock is good.  And it's pre-softened too.

Here's the problem as I see it. First, the credit arm of Harley gave too many people loans
that couldn't afford the bikes. They were upside down, before they got out the door.
Second, people who want new bikes now, can't get loans because the banks & Harley
have tightened up loan requirements. Look at the housing & auto industries.
 Harley will NEVER sell as many bikes as in the past, neither will the auto industry. It's
a new world with the credit crunch. The people who CAN afford to buy will buy, but they will
take it in the shorts, with their trade in, or if they try to sell outright. The used car market
has TANKED, because of the same problem. 
That sums it up nicely. Well said.

Yeah! I'd agree. However, with the reduction in production numbers we'll see even fewer bikes over here. Only 25% of production is earmarked for export at the max.
Saw the first '09 SEUC on the floor yesterday over here. I've seen the bike already at the 105th, but we're still excited. Unfortunately its not mine, because it is the slow orange one.

Ride safely,
Louis

They should start throwing in the 7yr ESP. Might restore some confidence with some, while still giving a decent discount! ;)
