I would say it is softer than prior years ... there are 05s on the floor at alot of dealers and not sporty's/vrods either.Dealer here has 3 RK's and a couple RG's and 1 wideglide that are leftovers as of Monday night . And this dealer has always been an MSRP dealer with no BS .I went in to get a filter for mine . So these bikes sat around in the warm riding weather. Even in the south and Cali where the riding season is just about all year its the same ..Nobody is saying the demise of HD but when was the last time u could walk in and by a leftover ?wyodude said:I've been expecting this post, but it's a little early.
EVERY YEAR around this time, someone notes the number of new bikes on their dealership's sales floor and predicts the demise of Harley Davidson.
Come spring, the other side of the coin will be noticed, when the only bikes available will be a few sportys and a couple of vrods.
