techspec Posted March 18, 2010 Share Posted March 18, 2010 Hi and this is what we need I think. New younger riders in the late 20s to mid 40s. We as an older group (not me of course) need to realize that for Kings Mountain to grow in the future they will have to capture a certain amount of riders from the Japenese group and also the riders that entered the HD group in the near past. You must have a nice ride that can corner great, give a comfortable ride and one that the owner, if wanted, can add customized items to. The accessory market, both from the OEM source and aftermarket companies bring new riders into the OEM market. The days are gone when a large group of older riders can support an OEM manufacturer. Sometimes we as an older group only think about the now or what is good for us but the future must be given the most attention to. No matter what one thinks of HD they do a lot of researching for new riders and try to offer product that brings then in and keeps the younger riders in fold until there finances allow for more comfort and relaxing rides. Lets not forget , us older ones, that we are not the future, we are the now, (I hate the word past). We can look back at what was and make some changes to bikes that will appeal to the younger group. the Japanese have done it just the opposite way of course. They captured the real young riders, gave them new bikes for the mid years and as one now sees they are offering Cruisers for the (eeee-god) ageing riders.
