    I can hear it now. The tree huggers will be screaming that they’re removing too much CO2 from the atmosphere which will kill all the trees and then us. We’re all gonna die but hey, we saved the planet from MMGW. :rolleyes:

    I had a doctors appointment today, and I actually saw a Pan America commercial on the TV in the lobby.

    I did not study this in great detail, but from my time in and out of coal plants in the 90's - 2000's seems like flue gas de-sulpherization did quite a bit to knock down their emissions. That seemed to be met by the EPA with a yawn, "...don't bother me with the facts, we've already made up our mind...." sort of response. But, I digress....back to bleeding at HD.

    I can believe that. The coal fired plant shut down 2o miles north of me was labeled one of the cleanest in the nation.

    Hey, I’m in the market for a new adventure bike... I’m gonna look at the Tiger, or one of the Japanese bikes, no the Royal Enfield is providing a lot of bang for the buck. Oh wait, I’m gonna ignore tried and true platforms for a Harley Davidson, said no one...ever. These poor idiots.

    Harley-Davidson Just Killed Its Cheap Motorcycles
    Mercedes Streeter
    Today 11:00AM

    Photo: Harley-Davidson

    Harley-Davidson is on a restructuring blitz lately. The Motor Company has been reshaping its future, and fans of the brand have been curious where it’ll go. On January 19, we learned a bit more about Harley’s future plans, and not all of it is good. It just killed its cheap bikes, the Street 500, Street 750 and Street Rod.

    I reached out to Harley-Davidson and a representative confirmed the line’s discontinuation:

    Yes, all Street motorcycles (Street® 500, Street® 750 and Street Rod®) were discontinued from the US MY21 lineup. We will continue to support H-D Riding Academy training dealers with Street 500 models.


    It’s not yet known what, if anything, will fill the cheap bike void. The Motor Company had no comment on future products.

    I thought the Street models were pretty neat. To me they looked a bit like a modern interpretation of an old-school Japanese motorcycle but with some American muscle.
