    Why are we getting excited about Harley doing what they should have done years ago, but instead were too stupidly focused on a narrow market segment?

    I never cared about the Italian Harleys back then, they were expensive and not as high-tech as the Japanese bikes. Down on power but they might have handled pretty well, better than the Asian imports?

    I have a friend that started collecting them 20+ years ago and has a garage full.
