    It sounds like it went the same was as Automotive, although that is not really back at normal levels yet.

    The thing with a Motorbike they're mostly a toy, that may get used for commuting. Now most people probably can/will work remotely moving forward i would guess people have more to spend on toys.

    His US comments seem to be correct. ATV and UTV vehicles get way more floor space than 2 wheeled bikes around the rural Eastern Washington dealerships. A parts guy told me he hopes Kawasaki brings back something like the KLR soon because they could always sell that bike. It will be interesting!

    On the bright side. Maybe we haven't had an American contender MotoGP rider for a few years, but the USA is doing well at Dakar in quads and lights. For bikes, "King" Price is back on top, the dude is fearless.... Americans Howes and Brabec are doing well and not that far back. Helicopter footage doesn't due justice to how fast those guys are.
