It's interesting how various methods of measure rank markets . . . .
While one finds the top states as South Dakota, New Hampshire and Iowa (using a people per bike ratio) another would indicate California, Florida and Pennsylvania based or raw registration numbers.
Motorcycle consumers are actually much more difficult to market to and the raw registration numbers begin to fall apart when you realize how many folks own 5 - 10 bikes.
Interesting article and I suspect that eventually the story of the C.A.R.B. delay . . . which bears amazing similarities to the 1994 S2 Thunderbolt delay . . . will creep out.
This is good news.

"the C.A.R.B. delay"
Does it have anything to do with a bloated and ineffectual government bureaucracy?

I hope they get a dealer in the sf bay area. In the meantime I'm happy to drive up north for a test ride
