    It was probably a 45K truck until they attached the HD name to it.

    Does the price matter? I couldn’t afford one. I’m talking about name brand recognition and exposure. I still have people come up to me and say that they had no idea that Indian started making motorcycles again. We talk about how the motorcycle industry is in bad shape and how people need to start riding again. A motorcycle manufacturer’s name on the side of a truck, is advertising.

    Yep, even though most of us couldn’t afford to drive it. Even if we still cared about Harley Davidson;).

    It would bring recognition to the brand. I've got cling on Indian Motorcycle stickers on my pick up and cars. People see those and strike up a conversation.

    I guess there's a whole 'nother conversation about brand ambassadorship we ought to have in another thread. Something like, "Do you consider yourself a brand ambassador and what trinkets/tools/efforts do you think would prove effective ?".

    The only reason they can even sell those things is that there are people in this world who have a lot more dollars than sense.

    I bought an F-250 Harley super duty brand new in 04, solid black everything - no orange. The truck came with all the options and the sticker at the time was $55K, but the 05's had just come out and the dealer accepted my offer of 42K, a Lariat at the time was about 37-40K

    I drove that truck for 10 years and y'all wouldn't believe the compliments I received regarding it. Of course I had a large Indian motorcycle sticker in the rear windshield (my 2K Gilroy Chief). When I sold the truck I received way more than the premium I paid and the 1st person that saw it bought it for my asking price. I sure miss that truck now, a small fortune to replace it.

    From what I gather the only car Ford makes now is the Mustang.
    All other 2020 models are SUV's and pick-ups.
