New Pres of Branding at HD

Not sure what I think about this yet. A health food packaging designer from San Fran-freak-o is now in charge of HD branding.

Article doesn't even mention if he even rides.

"Harley-Davidson is an iconic American brand recognized around the world as a symbol of personal expression and individual freedom," said Grimmer. "It is nothing short of an honor and a privilege to work with Matt and the amazing team at Harley to bring the strategy to life and excite the next generation of riders, ushering in the next chapter of the storied legacy of Harley-Davidson."

For sure a change in the whole culture.

Ol` school is dying. Going to dust just like the old Bikers who have tried to carry it and pass it along.

Just another reason I`m glad I`m old.

I keep looking at the New "Heritage" and the same thought comes to mind, "Who the Hell thought that was a good idea?????"

I may be Old but I Refuse to Grow Up.

A mental image of Tiny Tim on a Heritage with his ukulele strapped to the back rest comes to mind.

does anybody like the Gothic looking Heritages? I had a couple of nice Heritage's, a 2012 and a 2015. They look a hell of a lot better than the thing you ride in a "black out".
