Sorry, I didn’t mention that this was the donor bike.
Somebody’s been on the Dragon with theirs:
looks good in black.
Just picked mine up today. Only got in around a 100 miles . But I am impressed . Holy Shit what a bike from Harley!
I switch from bicycle to Moto with the front brakes on opposite sides, my brain instinctively knows which is which.
I switched the brakes on my bicycle so I don't have to think about it.
Me three it’s been crickets since reserving. No contact whatsoever. I called weeks later said may-june but sales rep didn’t know anything about reservations then haven't heard a peep since.
Harley has made zero contact.
I bought my first Harley (a 97 Fatboy) in 1996. I ordered it in 1994. I think I called them every week for two years
I tried that once long ago. Had to switch back. Brain kept reverting to bicycle mode.
Same, so many years of riding both, my brain has no trouble with front brake on the left when on a bike.
Man, this bike looks SO much better looking at owner pictures than it does in the press release/moto mag pictures. I really need to get to the HD dealer soon and see if I can look at one in person.
Looks fantastic in Black, all the best with it
Here is a PSA or an FYI...news from the Live Chat event last evening with H-D management hosted by the H-D Museum for pre-order customers...
The question was asked...'when will my pre-order arrive?' The answer was that 'the pre-order bikes are shipping now. Check with your dealer because they should be getting the information now.'
On another note, via the FaceBook PA group, some pre-order bikes arrived at a dealer unannounced. The truck pulled in and there they were.
I should email this dealer again to see if they've heard when theirs are coming.
Well I'm off work today. Going to stop in to the Harley dealer and see if there's any updates on the bike I ordered 3 months ago. If there's nothing, I'll be going down the road to the BMW dealer and picking up a GS/A.
I've got months of posts here and elsewhere demonstrating how excited I am for this bike, and I'm f*cking furious that any swinging dick can walk into a Tier 1 dealer and buy one while I'm left hanging out to dry.
The GS would be a better alternative. The GSA feels waaaaay heavier than the PA, and is most certainly bulkier. The PA and GS are very very close in overall feel, ground clearance, fuel capacity, etc.
I've owned a GS/A, and I'm familiar with it. I have no interest in a GS.
That's quite the reaction.
Glad the bike seems to be a success. I have no stake in this; but as a former IT consultant I find it absolutely shocking that H-D's supply chain software doesn't keep track of where bikes are in the pipeline. So much so that, like Vizzini, I find it
And in that spirit- I suspect it's H-D (or dealers for some reason I can't imagine) withholding the info rather than not having it available.
And the preorder business is really disrespectful to the folks who ponied up before knowing what the bike would be. So much for rewarding customer loyalty.
The other side of the coin is when a friend bought a GS in about 2008, not only could he track the bike from when it left the factory, but what boat it was on, when it would dock, & the container it was in.
It mattered to him because he's a NY harbor pilot and wanted to dock the ship
I think he also alerted the handlers prior to the container being unloaded and go through customs.
He was very thorough.
I hope you get some good news man
