Hell it's been working too. How else can you explain peoples' willingness to spend 20k on a POS and get treated like a shitbird at the dealerships?
Many forget HD's lobbying ability too, during the 80's when they were in serious financial trouble they went to washington saying japan was trying to put them out of business by flooding the market with cheap motorcycles,

What resulted was a signifigant increase in price for models over 700cc, and another reason for me to not want an HD, other than there crappy bikes that suck.
