Production Numbers

They make so many Harleys now.  What's gonna happen to all of them?  There's so many out there.  I saw some 2012 models the other day and they look like total shit.  All plastic and fake.  Who are they paying to design these things?  Yuk. You see these guys riding to Born Free and all these events on their old, cool iron - which, by the way they don't make anymore.  I don't think I will ever be able to buy a new Harley-Davidson and it makes me kinda sad.  I like Harleys best - it's been my brand my whole life.  My family was supported by Harleys . . . but, I'd rather spend $20,000 on a 1947 Knucklehead.  Too bad so sad.  Maybe a ZX-14?

I've thought about this myself and it's pretty much how I feel. The new ones have their place but bore the hell out of me. Before the recession, Harley was up to 450,000 a year. That means they made more bikes in two weeks then they did in a year back then.

Like all things today, They are becoming disposable. Can you imagine restoring one in the future or them being worth anything? Let alone all the wiring and small model changes... would baffle the mind.

The old bike riders and the new ones. It's two different scenes. I kind of cringe when I tell someone we have Harleys. Then they look at me funny when I tell them what years they are.

That's awesome Chris - you brought a big smile to me face. It's kinda like the difference between a Zippo Lighter and a Bic. You can rebuild a Zippo(they got class)so you want to save it.
