When Annapolis HD became Rommels they lost a lot of customers, to much a corporate environment vs the mom and pop boutique.

and as of late, HD has been forcing out owners to make way for NEW ones who can check off a box in the diversity section.

All the ford/toyota/honda car dealerships near me are open on weekends.
It means they are not making enough money to keep the lights on. Its now costing more to build each bike, twice as much to ship the bikes to dealers. And less money to around for people to buy. The economy is effed up.
