Harley-Davidson In Japan. Did You Know?

Until last year, a law prevented two people from riding on one motorcycle on the Japanese highways. Since this rule was scrapped sales jumped 13% in one year. The number of new Harley-Davidson registered in Japan hit a record of 14,000 in 2006, 48 percent more than in 2000.  Japanese have always been enthusiastic with the cachet of owning famous foreign brands, fashion or motorcycles.  Harley-Davidson fits the bill and attracts a new clientele of upscale baby-boomers using their bikes as a family sport activity

    Are you sure it’s not because the’re simply tired of living in a very repressive society and look at HD as a symbol of the “Rugged American Individual”….?

    Can you imagin a law preventing you form riding two-up…?
    I can’t.

    Had Joan Claybrook attempted to legislate MCs off US roads (as she wanted) there would have been riots in the street.
