HD's are 15-20 years behind in technology & everything else and that seems to be the way they want it. The demographics they're aiming for are all getting too old to ride. Let's face it, they're "bar bikes." For the most part the young riders aren't very interested in HD's. As for me, I'm a ole fart too. I've rode & worked on enough HD's to know I never want to own one . I like to turn the key, push the red button and ride. HD's, ride a hour, work on it for 2.
