did I hear this right? Harley finances for 15 YEARS?!!!!

Seriously, when I head this I was sure my chain was getting pulled, but it's true. ...isn't it? Good lord! 15 years??!! Sorry if this seems obvious to others but it's news to me. How do you even sign up for that...for a toy?

Well, how the hell else are a bunch of barely literate rednecks gonna increase their social standing amongst their peers? They've already tried the HD sticker on their lifted F150. That worked for a little while. Then they tried loudly asking anyone on "jap crap" at the gas station "when you gonna get a real bike?", even though they didn't actually own one. That made their friends within earshot snicker for a while. But eventually, you gotta step up to the winner's circle, son. Ride with the big boys. On a real bike. By going even further into debt...in addition to two truck payments, an upside down mortgage, a boat payment, and a utv huntin' rig payment...And alimony...And child support...

It's the American Way.

I'm not trying to make a bash Harley thread. I'm saving that for Friday!

I'm just astounded that they can do that. Have they partnered up with payday loans or something?

Harley will go up to 7 years. The independent dealerships can cut their own deals with a lender working with them--this is not "Harley."

But even 7 years is still nuts. I've never bought a vehicle longer than 5, and now that I'm better with money, I won't do more than 3. And that's for *cars*, not toys.

Forgive please. My bike is not a toy, it is my primary means of transportation. I average 22,000 to 25,000 miles a year on my bikes, while my four wheel contraption only gets drove about 4,000 a year. When the insurance bill comes for the "vehicle", I always question why I even own it? If it matters, I earn my living on my bike........

To add to that... I don't even own a car. Haven't since 2011. I don't consider my bicycle or motorcycles a "toy". They are transportation. It is that same thought process of "toy" that brings us "girls bike", "jap scrap", or "real bike".

Or maybe the thought process of people who don't live where it is warm and sunny most of the year.
