    I have never heard a word about H-D taking any cash for a bailout.
    (you gotta link?)
    I stand corrected, they got a SECRET $2.3 Billion loan, which prior to today I never heard of.

    I'd say that an honest 95%+ of the people I ride with are to the right of me.

    Other than that, you're dead on!


    Have a nice day!

    So Harley Davidson didn't have their bikes imported from Japan, they don't have Union plants and their PAC money doesn't go mostly to the Democratic party? Where did I make a mistake?

    H-D's are imported from Japan?
    Another secret.
    I mean the factory is about 5 miles from here, but that's just a front???
    Where did you come up with such an idea?

    After WWII H-D built/helped retool the factories in Japan.

    The union shops (as I posted) are being downsized and fazed out.
    The new CEO forced concessions.
    Factories in PA and northern WI had to give a lot.
    Factories and plants here in MIlwaukee have been seriously downsized.
    So the money is diminishing as the union jobs dissapear.

    I don't know much about the KC plant.

    There was secret stimulus money nobodey knew about except some blogs.

    Do some research.....you are off the mark.

    BTW---My beef is NOT and NEVER has been with shop unions, my beef is with PUBLIC EMPLOYE UNIONS.
    I am not surprised you don't see the difference.

    Having said that, I am out on this discussion with you.
    I don't have the energy tonight!

    Stan I think HD is a great company and my next bike will probably be a Road King, with that said the company is what it is, I don't believe I took liberties with any facts (and I did say former Jap bike). In the contents on the OP I think it would be completely hypocritical for a person who would purchase from a company like Harley Davidson then boycott a company like Progressive that is all.

    I own part of H-D.
    I really don't know who owns Progressive, I have heard Soros does.

    I use All-State as they are a rather large client of mine.

    Road Kings are awesome!
    I had one for 10 years.
    Now I ride a Street Glide;


    Come on over to the 110th anniversary!
    I will make sure you go to all the wrong places!!!!!


    (wanna see the back seat occupant?)

    Nice bike, I would love to see the back seat occupant. I no longer do rallies, riding wheel to wheel with bankers who get on their bikes once a year doesn't do it for me. About the only time I cross the WI state line is to go salmon fishing in Algoma, if you could recommend a charter that's better than Kinn's let me know.

    Please enlighten us, Mr. Wizard of smart, when was the last time you've ever investigated anything? Stan, please tell him what happened a few years back at the big Milwaukee rally where some liberal idiot booked Elton John in for the HD concert. Wonder how many Democrats were around at the end of that show?

    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
