I know a couple younger (Millenial) fellow riders who were pulled into the H-Ds as their first bike, some new, some secondhand. All sold within 1-2 years and moved on to something else. Not because of the H-D bad-boy image, but because the bikes rattle themselves apart. One guy finally gave up after his entire tail light assembly fell off mid-ride and ended up wrecked... Anyone should do a head-to-tail of their bike's nuts and bolts once in a while, but I never hear so many stories of bits dropping off mid-ride as I do with H-Ds. That signature rumble seems to come with a cost.
I used to think it was true that money can't buy happiness... then I bought a motorcycle.
