hello i just want every one to know how much i am pissed off at HD. I went to go and buy some plugs for my bike the other day and the guy behind the counter told me they have been discontinued. wtf i really liked their plugs and they were cheap only $1.99. I dont understand why harley cant back up their old bikes likey used to.

I mean WTF is up with that?

Ford stopped making parts for my 89 Mustang a couple of years ago. It's not just Harley. I'm sure Honda does the same thing.

Haha exactly.
If you ride vintage bikes, don't expect to get parts at every small town shopping mall.
Owning one just takes a tiny bit more work than an '09 model, which is surely the point?
