Looks like Apple didn't want a repeat of The Beatles.

Thanks for the input Paul. I'd also like to thank Bla1ze and Race951y for similar comments that they sent me.

Cheers

H-D bikes are only a part of the business. The front of an H-D dealership is a fashion-shop. You could always buy a jacket, but since the 1980 they've pushed boots, scarves, T-shirts and tanktops, sunglasses, handbags and thongs for the H-D rider's back-perch person. An H-D owner only buys a new bike every few years, but is in the store several times a year for service, socializing, or to see new models.

Apple's intended use does not conflict with H-D's uses.

Good point on that forgot about the Buell brand

The Buell X1 Lightning was made from 1999-2002. Harley-Davidson owned Buell from 1998 until they shut it down in 2009.
