That's what almost all us are saying also.
Curious, have Americans actually become that lazy where we can't/won't do somethings?
I would love to head the American built Wing but as we all know that takes LOTS of money.
The reason I say I is I try to keep to the middle of the road on the wants & needs of my customers. I offer optional suggestions and solutions to 'whatevers' and let the customer decide what they want, within reason of the overall job.
It be the same with the touring motorcycle. Granted space is at a premium due to its overall size and what most of us want to tote along. But adding just a smidge more room here and there allows for a larger radio or an extra jacket/pants/tarp etc.. Some want to pull trailers so the frame size, shape and strength must be considered. Let's not forget toe and leg room, passenger space, wind vortices, on-n-on.
Thenthere are those who only want it as a day ride vehicle and don't need all that room. That's where two models should be built, eg:the Valkyrie.
Then there's the issue of engine. Size, configuration, number of gears, ease of maintenance and/or rebuildability. I'm a mechanic at heart and would LOVE to be able to fix things quickly and inexpensively, unso with the current Wings.
Take the hardley for example:
Motor and trans is separate. Got problems with one or the other, simply R-&-R it. An exchange program could be had like starters and alternators.In my book (mechanical speaking) that's one of the biggest reasons for harley stay in business. EZ to work on.
In all basics, it is a motorcycle.It's a cycle with a motor.
THEN we add on our items of choice.
More items means larger Motor Cycle, etc..
So there's a lot to think aboutthan just building it.
Gotta start somewhere.
