    Harley-Davidon addresses sales issues

    Stolen from the internet


    The reasons for the slump in sales at H-D are not President Trump's fault.


    Apparently the Baby-Boomers all have motorcycles. Generation X is only
    buying a few, and the next generation isn't buying any at all.

    A recent study was done to find out why Millennial's don't ride motorcycles: 1. Pants won't pull up far enough for them to straddle the seat.

    2. Can't get their phone to their ear with a helmet on.

    3. Can't use 2 hands to eat while driving.

    4. They don't get a trophy and a recognition plaque just for buying one.

    5. Don't have enough muscle to hold the bike up when stopped.

    6. Might have a bug hit them in the face and then they would need
    emergency care.

    7. Motorcycles don't have air conditioning.

    8. They can't afford one because they spent 12 years in college trying
    to get a degree in Humanities, Social Studies or Gender Studies for
    which no jobs are available.

    9. They are allergic to fresh air.

    10. Their pajamas get caught on the exhaust pipes.

    11. They might get their hands dirty checking the oil.

    12. The handle bars have buttons and levers and cannot be controlled
    by touch-screen.

    13. You have to shift manually and use something called a clutch.

    14. It's too hard to take selfies while riding.

    15. They don't come with training wheels like their bicycles did.

    16. Motorcycles don't have power steering or power brakes.

    17. Their nose ring interferes with the face shield.

    18. They would have to use leg muscle to back up.

    19. When they stop, a light breeze might blow exhaust in their face.

    20. It could rain on them and expose them to non-soft water.

    21. It might scare their therapy dog, and then the dog would need therapy.

    22. Can't get the motorcycle down the basement stairs of their parent's home

    Well, I won't buy another motorcycle. I'm getting to infirm to ride anymore. Very sad day, that. I was getting worked up for an Indian Enfield when I got really sick. Well, it did save me some money, I guess.

    Motorcycles also don't have cup holders or a place to set their hummus bowl.
    Ammo will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no ammo.

    I used to bounce, now I tend to shatter. I tried to tone it down, casual trail riding an' stuff but I just can't do it. I'm good for about a mile......then it gets loud an' I break stuff......pretty much had to give it up.

    I miss my days of youth and immortality, and my old bike.
