HD dealers won't know how to sell it, and will present an alienating experience to non-pirates who darken the door of their stores. Ask me how I know....I used to be a Buell customer. I hope for the best for their employees since their livelihood is on the line, but HD as a company can go to hell. I'd bet a 2018 VStrom 1000 bought leftover today for literally half of this bike's price will out-perform it in every objective measure. Plus, you'd never have to explain to the dealer how to lube and adjust a drive chain.
