    Harley demand/price curve?

    +1 for selling bikes in the spring -- many riders are looking to upgrade or buy a first bike at the start of the riding season. They look to sell in the fall after the summer riding is over -- they need money for holidays. So, like PT1 said: buy in fall, sell in the spring.
