Klock Werks Stamped Steel Dash-A Stretched Look At A Fraction Of The Cost

A low-profile dash will do a lot to improve the look of your stock tank. Upgrade your tank’s console with a Klock Werks Curvaceous Kustom Metal Dash. Klock Werks makes a chrome ignition switch cover that compliments the dash perfectly. This custom pairing provides a clean, stretched look, for a fraction of the cost. 
       “The Curvaceous Dash is a beautiful piece. Its simple, yet elegant styling flows perfectly with the shape of Harley’s touring tank. It looks great painted, and it looks even sexier when its chromed! The dash is remarkably sturdy. I’m certain Klock Werks could have gotten away with using a thinner piece of steel, aluminum, or even decided to use ABS plastic or fiberglass–but they didn’t. That’s just how Klock Werks gets down–quality, quality, quality. (The Bagger Blog)”
       The Curvaceous Kustom Metal Dash by Klock Werks is made in the USA from 16-gauge stamped steel that is laser cut and e-coated to prevent rust and corrosion. The dash is available in a variety of lengths to accommodate different seat styles- two lengths (short and long) for ‘08 and newer baggers (08+ FLHT, FLTR, FLHX and HD FL Trike Models), and in three lengths (short, long, and extended) for ‘97--’07 FLHT, FLTR, FLHX. Low profile vented caps are recommended and sold separately.

Harley-Davidson Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

Worldwide Retail Sales, Diluted EPS Increase Year-Over-Year
MILWAUKEE, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harley-Davidson, Inc. (NYSE:HOG) first quarter 2016 diluted earnings per share increased 7.1 percent to $1.36 compared to diluted EPS of $1.27 in the same period in 2015. Net income was $250.5 million on consolidated revenue of $1.75 billion compared to net income of $269.9 million on consolidated revenue of $1.67 billion in last year's first quarter. 
       "I am pleased with how our first quarter results demonstrate the progress we're making in both driving demand and delivering business performance in a highly competitive environment," said Matt Levatich, President and Chief Executive Officer, Harley-Davidson, Inc.
       Harley-Davidson worldwide retail motorcycle sales in the first quarter were up 1.4 percent, driven by a 4.5 percent increase in international markets. Although retail motorcycle sales in the U.S. were down slightly compared to the year-ago quarter, retail sales trends have significantly improved over previous quarters.  Worldwide retail sales were driven, in part, by increased investments in marketing and new product introductions.
       In 2016, the company is increasing its marketing and product development investments to drive demand. The increased investments are focused in four areas:  increasing product and brand awareness; growing new ridership in the U.S.; increasing and enhancing brand access; and accelerating the cadence and impact of new products.
       "The increased marketing and new product investments are beginning to take hold and we anticipate continued progress across our focus areas as we dial in and ramp-up our approach," said Levatich.
