I'm not a Harley fan but I have no animosity toward the brand or their riders. I wish Harley well as it is good for the entire industry and the sport. But the world is changing, as it always has been, and from my viewpoint many of these changes (as it affects motorcycling) are not for the best. It wasn't that long ago that Rider Magazine sponsored a great annual rally, with every major manufacturer showing up with their demo fleet. I attended numerous Honda Hoots and loved them, other than the last one held which I think was in 2008 or 2009, which clearly was affected by the overall financial crisis in America and there were NO demo rides other than by Honda itself. Of my five grown children, one used to ride, and now the youngest is saying that when he can afford a bike he hopes to buy one, but no interest by the others. I have several grandchildren of legal age to drive and some do not even seem interested in getting a driver's license, and not a one of them has the least interest in a motorcycle. In fact, much to my surprise, when I offer to take a grandchild for a ride on my Goldwing it is the child that says that they are not interested, not the parent fearing for the child's safety. I've had grandchildren say that riding a motorcycle is just too scary for them. Very sad and it does not bode well for the future of the sport. But selfishly, I think that at least for the rest of my riding days there will be still be enough of a motorcycle industry that I will be able to find bikes and keep riding them. And despite my earlier comment on this thread, I likely will try the Chicago show again next year and give it at least that one more try.
