Did Schnieder take this over? HD used to do this "in house".

Harley Davidsons "House" is crumbling. How do you drive a Tractor Trailer to India and back?

Paula, all I know is that they have nice looking trailers and that every Harley rider who passes you will give you a thumbs up. That's probably all you need to know!

Agreed. HD is a mere shadow of it's historical past. This coming from someone who has ridden/owned pretty much every model over a 25 year span. They are now vastly overpriced POS's, and they keep missing the boat with some of their marketing strategies. A $30K electric bike with a 100 mile range?

HD trucks used to be "International HD Special Edition" rigs.

The bikes are crated and forklifted on/off the trailer. Many dealerships are NOT EQUIPPED to handle a TT (some don't even have docks), so there's a lot of "on street offloads".

I got friendly with a driver that delivered YEARS AGO for them (hence my surprise they are now contracting it out). As I recall, it was a salaried gig. The hardest part he related, was having to use a pallet jack to drag bikes to the edge of the trailer for non-dock offloads. We didn't talk salary $$'s. He deadheaded back to a distro point, to pick up the next load. Most loads are multi-stop.

Please give us the details on this, if you get the gig. Be interesting to know how they do it now.

Deadhead:

To drive with an empty trailer. After delivering your load you will deadhead to a shipper to pick up your next load.

Rick, It is sad to see the Disintegration of an AMERICAN ICON. My last Harley was a 1998 Sportster 1200. Sold it 3 years ago when I got into this gig. Carbureted, belt drive, simple, affordable, reliable. I really miss owning it, but it would have made no sense to keep it and store it.

Schneider transfers parts between manufacturing plants. For example a load of seats from york, pa to the plant in Tennessee. They do not deliver completed bikes just pieces from plant to plant. My trainer used to do those runs. They have been doing that for a few years now.
