LOL, part of the point for ME to get another bike is to have something I can take the wife out on once in a while so the FXDR won't work.

But I may still give it a go

But that's HARDLY the point of the demo fleet (well maybe to Harley, but not to me).

I mean, isn't Harley's policy test ride any bike, any day? I don't abuse it and go to dealers just to ride their stock if there's not a chance I might buy.

To me the Demo Fleet is more of a chance to try something I might otherwise never ride. Granted, I might change my mind and consider something I wouldn't have otherwise or it might cement in my mind that I want something I thought I did.

I certainly have ridden some demos and later bought a number of bikes so it can work that way too.

But if you're working a demo event, and there's a brand new bike out there, crap, give it a go man! Give it a GO!

LOL, yes I could do a demo ride anytime but never seem to get around to it.

We'll see if I can get to it, my guess is there will be a line waiting for it

tvon,

The good news is that you can search for Demo Truck events at the HD website: https://www.harley-davidson.com/us/e...-calendar.html

The bad news is some of the search filters do not seem to be working. If I filter for “Demo Rides” or for “H-D Demos”, I get no results. If I search “All Events”, Demo Truck events are listed in the results.

That search comes up with a ton of "dealer demos" but none for the truck.
