Because people see them in magazines and in all the Bobber mags, on bikes that are generally, not even ridden. Some guys ride the hell out of them, but but the norm, just sit, are show bikes or get sold.
Foot clutch, Springers and velocity stacks. Alll extremely cool to look at, but there are more modern, better engineered mechanical alternatives that have evolved, since the day of their inception, that are more rider friendly and engineered to be better, safer and actually work for what they were intended for.
I love the look. But I've also ridden them. Not rider friendly.
Can I get used to a foot clutch? sure.... I could also get used to having one eye, one foot and a speech impedimant. But I choose not to......
