I've owned three Harleys, and still have one.

I think H.D. doesn't need racing, and isn't going into racing because they don't have to!

two reasons:

1) they sell their bikes for a profit.

2) Motor Clothing! = 200% profit margins 300%? probably more.

The dealerships were required to be reconfigured to expand the 'accessories' section... or bye bye dealer.

so, why spend on R&D/Racing, when there are streams of people, who probably don't even own an H.D., and are buying up their wares.

Seems to me to be good, conservative business model.
