First off, I'm referring to the stock and demand for their product. I don't argue the fact that rice burners may be better built or better handling. I do know that you have to wait 3-6 months during good economic times to receive one after purchase. I'm not challenging anyone of the handling of candy ass crotch rockets. I'm sur they handle better. My observance through a gift I was given of COMMEN SENSE says that the economy will be better in 2004 after a fairly long recession. Target market for these bikes is no longer the long haired, tatooed,gun loving freak with a WW1 German soldiers helmet with a spike out the top. It's Lawyers, doctors and Indian chiefs whom like expensive toys. American icon toys. As soon as people's portfolios start inflating like they were sprinkled with viagra, these guys will be in line for their hogs. If they want cheap rice burning crotch rockets they would buy them now. Econ 101 , "replacement goods". There really arn't any for a classic American, yes AMERICAN Harley. Sometime you have to use your noggin when investing. It won't just always bite your ass. Tiffany will go up as well as Harley!!! Watch. It really is common sense.
Harley, Well I think Americans are going to wake up to the fact that there being ripped off. tHE ONLY REASON THAT Harley is where its at is the Dumbing Down of Most People---Now look. Harleys, can not corner, can not stop vary good, and have no power at all!! and People like sheep stand in line to spend twice the money to say I have a Harley look at me and see how STUPID I am, Im just like you just a copy cat not really knowing myself and having no direction but Im BAD, that is in my head!. Now look at Harley and see how much they have you fooled, now look at the new v rod and look at Harley, look what they say AMERICAN---Bull
You got a one product company. I don't know what the patent protections are anymore but it's a question I would ask. Don't know where the growth will come from to make anyone pay attention to this company. Don't think any one would want to take over this company if patents are going to run out.
