Just discovered this story today, seems Harley is pressuring a YouTube creator to take down one or !ore videos, or they are going to cause difficulty to his friends who own the local dealership.

Still gathering details, but it looks pretty $#!++y on the surface.

Check the comments, another big Harley based channel seems to have had issues in the recent past as well.

Anyone know anything first hand about this?

Like I always said avoid Harley Davidson on any cost.

You can definitely feel the sea change of why you own a harley around here.

Hasn't been sudden, but over the last several years there is definitely been a pulling back on brand loyalty.

Seems like h-d is now chasing the wind!

So they designed that sportster engine in mid 1980s and still have not sorted out all this engine troubles.

It can't meet the new Euro 5 regulations, now H-D has not a single 'entry level' motorcycle to sell in Europe.
Where they ride 80% sub 500cc motorcycles
Or India, the largest motorcycle market in the world.


They only sell Snakes and Sparklers. Happy 4th of July: (

My personal opinion is that Erik Buell could have had them on the top of the heap today.

I agree Court.

The demo's changed and h-d did not...except for their lateness to the smaller India made motorcycles.

I also agree that there is a great need to smaller cc motorcycles today. I'd be happy being the male counterpart to Itchy Boots these days.(the way Wisconsin roads are going, riding on the dirt might be smoother! ) Riding a bicycle is very dangerous around here.

You are not the only person on this forum with that opinion. Maybe the shoe salesman will turn things around, but I have very little hope of that

happening.
