Yes Sir, I think Harley wants to shut this site down. I am just asking anyone that has ever ordered a H-D and got a ship date how long did the bike take to get to the dealer from the date??

"Yes Sir" LOL Thanks! :D


Dates slip from what I have heard. I guess you got an approximate date when ya bought.

I am not sure how long they slip or what the average is. I heve never ordered a bike.

There should be some folks here that can help based on their experience.

Hey! What part of NC are you in? I am headed that way in a few.

As an ex over the road driver, and seen what goes on out there. It just depends on traffic jams and Lot Lizards.

Between 5 and 8 days, depending on the shipping. They do some of their own transport, but mostly use contract trucking companies. In urban areas there is some extra delay because they transfer the bikes to smaller 27" trailers to make the in town deliveries.
Then you are looking at a day or two to get the bike prepped if there is no shipping damage. (this is very rare, but happens)

That's out here, might be a day or two less being closer to the factory.
