Harley-Davidson closed its annual shareholder meetings to the public, including members of the press. In the past, the motorcycle giant held the meetings on Saturdays, and Harley aficionados would travel in groups from all over to enjoy the big-screen videos and blaring rock and roll serving as backdrop for the motorcycles in the Harley-Davidson Museum, where the meetings are held. This year, the meeting was held on a Thursday at 3PM, and enthusiasts were invited to attend the first Bike Night of the season afterward. Analysts said it was unusual for a publicly-traded company to close its annual meetings to the public, and the decision to do so only raised alarms. Some speculated the privacy may have been motivated by a 12% quarter-over-quarter drop in sales as there is a general ennui about motorcycles among millennials, and baby boomers are aging out. The losses have led the company to make the unpopular decision to close its Kansas City, Missouri, factory while opening one in Thailand. Corporate spokesperson Mike Pflughoeft said the company merely had nothing new to announce.
