I totally get that and sometimes a business has to do things customers don't like to survive, but why couldn't the day just be shifted to save some face. I mean the people there for "Bike Week" will come do the tour during the M-F anyway. Make it official and schedule a day, offer a discount, etc.

York is a shithole anyway. I live less than 30 minutes away and I avoid that city as much as possible. I wont miss the HD tour and if York city rolled up the sidewalk and closed shop I wouldn't miss it either.

Hard to entice them new folks if you've got a bunch of gray haired pot belly old farts hanging around all the time...

Another thought is could be things going on in the plant they don't want public right now , be it new stuff coming or the big influx of Chinese packaging for parts.

Yeah, too bad the pot belly gray haired old farts are the one that kept Harley out of bankruptcy .Lets see maybe that can attract minllinals by offering free jobs, food, free collage paid for by the motor company and free live wires for all! Don't forget to take the new high speed rail system across the country because there will be no cars,buses or jets to get you to P. A. Not to be negative but comments about us old farts but it doesn't help with the bottom line at Harley especially when many of us bought many new Harley's and paid for them outright.

What is a "free job?"

Is this one of those socialist programs that lets me work for no incentive other than the betterment of my community and country, all the while allowing everything else (grocery, medical care, living expenses and education) to just be "free"?

Free job to me means the substanable wage, free to everyone who chooses not to work. Part of the new Green Deal proposed by the new national socialist party.. The Democrats That to me equates to a free job, sit on your ***, do nothing and get a pay check. Sorry for any confusion. Don't know how the motor company expects to attract some of these kids to ride when they expect someone else to pay for everything. Just miffed at some of the decisions and stupid comments being made by some of the leadership at the company. Knee jerk reactions in my opinion. Sorry.
