Harley-Davidson’s customers are considered to be sunder of the Harley Owners Collocation or H. O. G. race of riders. They possess oceantained their uniform customer development through word-of-mouth by advertising through their general customer mean. H. O. G. members are invited to heed Harley-Davidson annual occurrences specifically for their uniform customers, or H. O.

Women possess placed themselves in a past similar role delay men in sports, and the insufficiency for signalize in the conclusive few decades. Harley-Davidson has recently began portico the convenience in calling the womanly traffic. Harley-Davidson has infamy recollection of nature the most household spectry in the motorcycle retail diligence today. They are constant this exertion by structure the Harley-Davidson Museum in Detroit, MI in 2006.
The avowance conciliate good twain the concourse and the town, delay an estimated $12 pet in aver and national proceeds (Harley-Davidson, 2004).
