Last Friday morning, I took the Ultra down to the Harley dealer in Temecula, CA to meet up with a club from Orange County, who invited me along for a ride. I couldn't make the ride, but I wanted to come down and hang out with them.

I got there just as the dealership opened, on the day noted by many as "Black Friday", the day after Thanksgiving, supposedly the biggest shopping day of the year. But at the HD dealer, it was dead.

I walked into the dealership and looked around. I figured I would check to see if there was anything I might put on my wish list. I found a nice pair of cold-weather gloves that was marked down by 25%.

Today, (Sunday), I brought my wife into the dealership to show her the gloves. And again today, the place was dead.

They had salespeople pacing the floor, chit-chatting together, and the place of course, was decked out with Christmas decorations. But that's about the only celebration that was going on.

I can understand that people won't be buying motorcycles for Christmas, but I figured the accessories would make great gift items. I remember last Christmas, going to the HD dealer in Riverside, CA, to pick up new helmet for my wife, and that place was mad house. Could it just be the location?

I guess it's one thing that Harley can't sell bikes. But when Harley can't sell their logoed accessories, then that's a BIG problem.
