If Harley Davidson is the Titanic, the pandemic might just be that one big iceberg. Worse still, it had a hole in the hull and sputtering engines before all this even began. Damn. Is HD done for? [Details below]

It's the only motorcycle company I know of that has to use engine mounts to counter the vibrations of the engine going through the frame. Everyone else makes balanced engines which bolt straight onto the frame without any issues! Really old tech, really heavy, uneconomical, expensive to buy, expensive to run and expensive to maintain. One of my customers took his Harley in for a check over (not a service, no parts fitted, a check over) walked away £380 lighter (approx $535 US) He's now my customer :0)

Owned a harley fat bob 2009, kept it for 8 years then dropped it after coming round a blind corner to a Winnebago doing about 10. God bless highway bars, saved my leg being squashed. No mechanical issues, good cruiser for long rides. Can't say anything bad about it tbh. I'd buy a BMW if I was gonna buy another bike though.

Skeptics often argue that governments will ban Bitcoin when it becomes too important and threatens national sovereignty. What they fail to understand is the power of distributed open-source technologies and the game theory faced by governments when making these decisions.If you live under that type of regime, you need Bitcoin more than you think.

Just bought an 05 sportster and I love it. Gonna make it quieter though. Last owner installed a very loud exhaust that I don’t care for. For me, it’s Americana. I’ve wanted one since I was a kid. And now, as a big kid, I have one.

I own a smaller Harley, a 1200 sportster...but I believe their demise began a long time ago ...back when Ducatti developed the desmonic valve train and kept up with all of the other bike manufacturers on the track. All Harley has managed to do track-wise is go fast on alcohol-fueled 1/4 mile bikes. I also own an '07 GSXR-1000 which goes fast on regular and on corners. LOL

50, 125 and 150cc Scooters are popular as heck yet Harley hasn't made a scooter since the Topper (165cc) from 1961 to 1965. Harley could have made such scooters non motorcycling people would have bought. They could be competing with the China market and crushing it in the US but nope..

It is both. True and sad. Selling a brand means not to sell bikes either. And you have to sell bikes when your opportunity is to survive. And changing the modells every three years, specially the Sportster, has not much continuty. I'm deeply depressed about that story.

Been there, seen it and done it. Wrung the hell out of it and have the scares to prove it. Like everything, there is a lifecycle to consider. Why should HD be any different? If you missed your chance, too bad. Some of us get to live and die as legend, while others are forgotten before they are gone. HD was never intended to go on and on. It was born, lived, fought and died, just the same as the rest of us from that generation.

One of the 2+ motorcycle training schools here (Virginia) is owned and taught by local police officers. It is completely independent of the police department, on off hours, on private property on their fleet of 250cc. After the many-day course you go by yourself to DMV for test. They also have advanced courses. HD dealer refers people to a different school, don't know why.

Overpriced, underpowered, and arrogance thinking they were the shit and nobody would beat them. "Pride cometh before the fall". I learned to ride on a Harley 25 years ago and rode nothing but until I purchased a Yamaha Roya Star tour deluxe cruiser, best bike I ever purchased, affordable, reliable, and reasonably powerful should've done it sooner.

Great story telling but I think Polaris has a lot to do with the decline of Harley Davidson. I stopped buying Harleys and switched to Victory motorcycles. Now own two, a Kingpin and a Crossroads. The engines seem to last forever, but if ever want to buy a new bike it will be an Indian. I just think they are better built with better engine design than Harley, and just as big, loud, and American made.

During the 50's thru the 70's, Hollywood made motorcycling part of the American culture and HD was there to capitalize on it. But even then, when you learned to ride at a young age, you probably learned on something like a Honda z50 or CT70 minibike, and that builds nostalgia. Back in the day we had, The Wild One, Easy Rider, On Any Sunday, Electra Glide in Blue, Wild Angles and the TV series Then Came Bronson, Motorcycling in America will never be what it once was.

Not a fan, but not a hater. I think that Harley Davidson is getting a taste of what the Big 3 experienced starting in the late 60’s; misreading their future customer base and telling them what they want instead of asking & listening.

The trick to buying a new Harley for your price is don't be in a hurry, have the financing or cash setup ahead of time and show up on the last day of the month and play hardball. Don't tell me that won't work, I've done it. Took me 3 visits on the last day of the month, first 2 times I told them I had the money at the bank, which I did have it setup on my home equity. The 3rd trip I took the amount I was willing to pay with me. They played hardball and so did I , showed the sales manager the cash, he said he could not sell for that, I put the money in my pocket and headed for the door, gotmy hand on the door and pushed it open.....hold on hold on you got me.... I turned and looked him in the eye and said bo, I had you 3 months ago! New 09 Electra glide priced at $22,900..... Out the door at $17,500!!!

I grew up and became aware of Harley Davidson when Harley was owned by AMF - at the time, they had an unrivaled reputation as the least reliable, most underpowered and least stylish motorcycles. Google the 1981 XR-750, it constantly makes the top 10 worst HD motorcycles. At a time when Honda was producing THE most reliable and economical 750 for half the price, it's easy to see why Harley has generally been in decline over the years. I owned a Honda CB750 when I was in college and it was fun to ride and more importantly, indestructible. That last trait was most important as I did not have extra money or the facilities to properly maintain it. I put in oil, lubed the chain and a new set of tires. That's it.

Bought my HD in 2004, didn’t care about the name brand, but when I saw my vrod i had to have it. the bike was never accepted by the enthusiasts due to a liquid cool engine, quiet, yet it is wicked fast that none of them could keep up, but over and over I kept hearing “that’s not a Harley” which was quite annoying that resulted in not really caring about the life style they promoted, nor bought their clothing, nor participated in any of their rallies. The vrod was aimed at the 20-40 crowd just like me, but It was the hard core enthusiast that killed the demand or interest thus sales going to Kawasaki, Ducati, Honda, Indian, etc... the vrod was discontinued about 5 years ago, still best bike Harley build.

@Carl Skaggs my husband and I have meticulously taken care of our bikes. I think you may be luckier than the typical Harley owner. I’ve had to do a lot more work than just oil changes in the 23 years I’ve been riding. All 5 of my bikes have been new or nearly new when I bought them. Maybe you should shut your mouth until you can respect other people’s experiences.

Oil and filter changes are a "lot of maintenance"? Like I posted earlier. I've owned eleven Harleys....none ever leaked oil....none ever left me stranded....none required nothing more than an oil change...the ONLY thing I had to fix on all the Harleys I owned was one speedometer cable on my '85 Electra Glide that I replaced myself for less than $20. Come back when you know what you're talking about.

You put a lot of work into these videos. I have watched most of them and enjoy them all. I have always wanted a Harley but, price was always the stop. I have owned Honda's, Yamaha's and Suzuki's. Today I own a Pig (KLR650) due to so many close calls in the city. This bike gets me out into the back country, anything that happens there is my fault. Tired of leaving my hands in a strangers control. I biggest problem is the lack of drivers out there that don't care about motorcycles around them. Although, a lot of riders out there that give us a bad name. 42 years of riding and I will never stop as long as I can get on one. God Bless your passion of motorcycles and keep making the videos. Thank You.

Great video. Spot on. I've been riding bikes since 1960. I'm now 76 and still ride every single day. I started on a Honda but over time I had 6, yes six Harleys. All brand new. Road King, Fat Boy, Heritage Softail, Sportster 1200, Lowrider 104, and a Nightrod Special. 6 years ago I went back to Honda. Why? I got sick of heavy, old fashioned, inefficient, expensive, unreliable crap. But most of all I got sick of the hypocritical flag waving tough guy show off culture that Harley promotes. Arrogant service managers. Take it or leave it salesmen. And "made in America" bullshit while sucking on the government teat and making most parts and then whole bikes overseas. I for one will be happy to see them go - as they surely will. I now have over 60,000 trouble free miles on my 2015 Honda and will never consider Harley again. ForNine - great analysis.

I'm your kindred spirit.... 74 years old, started riding in 1962 on a Yamaha (with a non-riding stretch for college, army, wife, kids, house....). Finally got back into it in 1976 on a Honda 750 - another Honda and 3 Kawasakis since then. Never owned a Harley, but have ridden a few hundred miles on several different ones. For the folks that like them, that's fine with me, but they just aren't my type of motorcycle.
