Pretty sure that lots of components for HD come right off a boat from China.Which company is still building motorcycles in America again? and which company closed it US factory and tucked its tail back to Japan?
I don't much care what anyone rides. Not particular on if a Japanese brand is actually made in Japan or made in the US, seriously WTF difference does it make? I get that some people are HD snobs, never understood it. I've ridden them, took my riding test on one when I got back to riding, but the brand is just not for me.
Although the new Pan America is appealing. If they made it in an smaller, lighter variant, something in the 750-850cc range, under 475#, but still tall with good ground clearance for gravel and woodland tracks, while still comfortable on the highways, that would be a lot more interesting than a 1250cc.
