I realize leather is anything but 'eco-friendly', but I've been trying to find where Harley Davidson gets their leather?
The reason I ask, is because my father-in-law thinks that it's just the skins of animals we already ate. My response has been, "whatever makes YOU feel better." I'm vegan. Been for over a year now. :D
I know that a lot of the leather in North America is actually from completely different cows in India(one example), but I would like to confirm this about Harley products before diving into a speech with my husband's biker family.
Unfortunately, when I Google this, all I get is websites touting these products. I'm pretty close to just contacting Harley Davidson, but I have a hard time believing they'll be straight with me.
First off, please don't yell at me. Second, I don't use leather. My husband DOES ride a Harley Davidson, and he is NOT unethical. We are very happy together, and I am very sorry that you have such a scewed view of reality. I'm sorry that your life experiences have lead you to this heart-wrenching conclusion.
I'm also sorry that you didn't evenread my posts. You saw 'Harley Davidson', and assumed. Shame on you.
I was just looking for information to pass onto the bikers in my life. Don't judge me.
I read your post and I am so glad you did the research. Sometimes it is hard to avoid absolutely everything. My steering wheel is leather and in order to get that engine I had to have a leather steering wheel. I could of special ordered my truck, waited longer and paid more. I needed a vehicle though and it needed to be appropriate for my location.
