So I got an email from Harley. It's a live countdown till some sort of release.
My money is on their electric bike.

I think Vin nailed it... They have to keep stepping up there game or Vic & Injun will leave them in the dust... Literally! Harley builds a beautiful bike but they lack in the power department. I expected Vic to come with 116" this year or something similar. I thought a bad ass bagger like the magnum would show up with a blingy paint job, big stereo and big motor.

Exclamation bean counters

whatever they do will be done on the "cheap"!!! the bean counters love blingy "upgrades" because they are cheap. Donny Peterson noted the issues with the earlier Screamin Chicken 110's, hardly did it cheap + owners with the big $$$ bikes quickly developed engine issues!!!! nice when you pay $$$$$$

Exclamation

popped in my local 20 miles hardly dealer while riding this morning, needed a wizz + a free coffee. actually a decent dealer where i bought the 06 porkster, also picked up a can of S-100 engine brightener, at mags suggestion. floor is pretty empty, but lots of them parked outside it looks, a good lookin lady, owners wife i believe said waiting on the dealers meeting, owner knows but lips must be sealed!! parked my Hammer on the end so it was more visible, lots of "sly" looks!!!
