...what I left with was something about a type of motorcycle racing I wouldn't have given a fuck about even fifty years ago when they were winning the contests, and a whole lot of brand merchandise.

It's like if Porsche had won a couple of Formula 2 races in the late 50s and just kept selling the 550 as-is up through the 2010s.

FOH. Only way that "American" symbol survived is via trade protectionism and dipshit Boomers suddenly hitting their late 50s.
