What Would You Ask Harley-Davidson?

Diana and I will have the distinct honor of interviewing Paul James, Director of Product Communications for Harley-Davidson to get the inside scoop on the 2010 H-D models. We are also going to test ride several of the new Harley-Davidson motorcycles. We have requested to test ride the new Fat Boy Lo and the new Wide Glide. Diana wanted to test ride a Street Glide but they told us they only have the new Street Glide Trike available… no problem, that sounds like fun. I never rode a trike before. This will take place at a three day product launch party in New York City next week.

So what would the readers of RC USA want me to find out from the Harley-Davidson exec? My mind might go blank under pressure so please give me some good idea’s on what I should ask. What do you want to know about the new 2010 product line and the product lines of the future.

  1. Sorry, considering, there is no budget for one right now, I don’t want to pain myself with drooling over them anymore.

  2. I’d ask him about the future of the air cooled engine given current EPA regulations. I’d follow up with questions about the possibility of plans to move to the Revolution engine. From the communications side ask if they plan to continue to sponsor MMA fighting, the Sons of Anarchy, any plans about new publications, that kind of thing.

    If I think of more I’ll post again

  3. Thanks, keep em coming.

  4. I’m curious as to what H-D is doing with MV Agusta.

  5. would like to know if a shaft drive is in the near future.

  6. I think we are going to get the shaft; one way or another. It’s the new American way.

  7. My question would be when is the MOCO going to step up to the plate and do the right thing when it comes to the thousands of us who purchased new 2009 touring bikes that have the bogus D407F front tires on them? Most of us take the bikes in to the dealer only to be told there are no plans to warranty the severe cupping that is occuring on the tires. Another question to ask would be why the MOCO does not warranty gauges that fog up due to humidity and the ever present ambient air temp gauges that never get any closer than 8-12 degrees to being accurate. If the salesman had told me that the gauges all fog up and the front tire was going to vibrate and howl when going down the road, I would not have purchased the bike.

  8. They don’t tell you a lot of things for that reason.

  9. Well Doug, I guess we all know the answer to your question now. MV Augusta & Buell both dropped like hot potatoes!
