Harley-Davidson New Softail for 2018 – Harley Davidson Sport Glide

Harley-Davidson New Softail – 2018 Harley Davidson Sport Glide

This bike doesn’t do justice to the original, which had a fixed functional engineered fairing(albeit a little ugly), a ton of suspension travel and mid-pegs. It was also lighter. Had lower fairings too. It was a sporty touring comfortable corner ripper(for a Harley..). It’ll appease the wannabes. Not the FXR die-hards. Millennials in skinny jeans and shorty boots will flock to it. That’s the idea I guess….

I think Harley is killing it. If they could bring their prices down to at least within 15% of their competitors they’d probably do really well. Their older customer base wasn’t real good at math, but back then, even the mentally challenged could find good paying jobs. Younger riders making that kinda dosh with the all the info in the world at their fingertips are likely far better educated and less susceptible to Harley sales BS.

Harley doing what they do best…practically nothing. Hey lets hang some more chrome and make them even heavier. Like they are putting 2018 stickers on a 1918 motorcycle. And that is why they are slowly sinking. As the only people left that will buy them any more are slowing dying off from old age. Take a look in Craiglist adds and see the many, many Harleys for sale…as many as all the other brands of motorcycles combined. Just don’t get it.

19K pricey…gotta pay for all that R&D I guess, but man…that’s expensive! give up 2K and spring for a Street Glide right!?!
