Harley Davidson to cut back as well

In line with yesterday's discussion on Airstream cutting back models, Harley Davidson is also cleaning house:

Been in two dealers recently and the showrooms were FULL of new bikes. One dealer had an adjacent warehouse full of delivery-ready bikes.

Truth be known, HD makes more of their money on their bike accessories, clothing and knicknacks than it does off the bikes.

We have two main motorcycle dealers in the town where I live (metric bikes, not Harley)

They have both been here as long as I have lived here - 29 years - but one has just closed due to bankruptcy within the last month. Sad.
