I was wondering if the parts are made in China and sent to US and other for assembly?
Probably not because the import duty would make that prohibitive. There could easily be parts sourced in Canada and Mexico and EU though, but the recent threatened EU increase trade tariffs increase really upset HDI and would hurt their earnings.

Sure, just like all other manufacturers they source parts worldwide.
It is likely that some parts come from China. Wire, switches, light bulbs, and other electrical and electronic bits are mostly made there nowadays.

Hey guys, I just thought it was an interesting photographic scene. I'm no Harley guy. I did own a scooter once... and that was indeed made in China.

I just did a scan of the Wikipedia page for Harley, no mention of China.

If You Go Down To The Woods Today....

You're sure of a big surprise... Bluebell season is here.

A shaded wood with sunlight filtering through, is no challenge for a K1.
