I hope h-d's new small bike experiment is successful. Their past attempts haven't been. And it's what bankrupted Indian.
I hear you on what America wants. What about Europe? Would a smaller HD work there? Or do Europeans who want HDs want them big?Scott
" what shall I get as an second bike - one to work on while ride the other one?"
You still might ride in your 60s, but you're doing it less frequently and you probably aren't buying a new bike.
I wish they would have built the new bikes as standards rather than cruisers. The original Sportster looked a lot like a Bonneville with a V-twin. How are they going to attract younger riders with another cruiser with a 25" seat height? But what do I know?
