I guess I see anything like a motorcycle, boat, RV, etc, as a "want" not a "need", and as such, if I have the cash, I'm holding it now instead of spending it. And I say this as I'm close to buying the SS.

Harley is trying to reach a whole new generation. They have a whole thing on their earnings release about cultivating a "new generation of riders" or something to that sort.

Those articles i posted directly disagree with you as to what want vs need markets are doing and i mean personally knowing your situation quite more directly, and personally, you're holding your cash now likely because of your current employment situation meddling in the back of your head (understandably so)

"want items" are luxury items.... that's like the definition of the phrase luxury items.


Reading further into it- i think harley is missing because motorcycles in general are missing.

https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/201...y-not-falling

furthermore, new motorcycles don't afford much new features/quality/reliability/performance over stuff that came out 10-15 years ago... THEN even further, the market has to be absolutely flooded/saturated with bikes from the heights of the bike market.

No disagreement on the employment thing. I just know myself personally, have become more "Frugal" in spending in general and while I'm not in the "stacks" group, I ain't poor either.

i mean, you've likely become frugal in spending because of your age? right?

you likely have most things you want or need, are really looking at retirement close on the horizon, etc...

Who is buying a motorcycle ?

200+ emails a day here... plus god knows how many phone calls.
I get to train another newbie ( whenever they get hired ), this should make #10 or 11.

The turnover here is laughable
