Default Harley-Davidson: Free storage facility for defense customers

Harley-Davidson India has introduced a new storage facility service for its Armed Forces H.O.G. Chapter, offering customers to safely store their motorcycles at selected Harley-Davidson dealerships in the country while they are away.

The Armed Forced H.O.G Chapter was formed in 2015. It comprises of Harley owners who serve the country's defense forces. The company claims that since such defense personnel often stay away from their bikes for very long tenures, there arises a need to safely park these bikes at a place where they can be looked after. This was the chief reason behind the introduction of this storage facility.

Members of the Armed Forces H.O.G. Chapter can now leave their bikes at select company dealerships while they are away and then collect it when they are back. During this period of absence of the owner, the bikes will be parked at the company's dealerships and will be regularly maintained.

Well, the intention and the thought process behind this is praise worthy. I do not own an Harley, hypothetically, If I owned one, I am not sure if I would have liked to leave my prized possession under some one else's care specially in India where it is pretty common for people to have found their spare parts being sold at the chor bazaars.

Also, don't forget the chances of ones bike being taken for joyrides. It would be a much better idea to leave their bikes at home or with a trusted friend/relative
rather than keeping it in a showroom where anything could go wrong, especially since the period is long.

Imagine the scene where the showroom has been shut down when the owner returns . Sad but similar events have happened.

For reasons outlined above, I would be surprised if even a single Harley-Davidson owner availed of this storage facility.

This is a classic PR stunt to 'remain in the news'. See the coverage they've gotten - link.
