There is the purely business side of that article that says that the SEC would never let it happen, but if it does I have 3 words....BUY VICTORY STOCK!

If HD was Japanese owned they would plummet with the earthshattering speed of an extinction event meteorite.

sy0296, do you ride a Harley (I do), do you know why 90+% of Harley owners buy Harley's, it's because they are perceived to be an American Brand, have you ever stood around a fire with 20 other guys and burned a Honda? (I have), Known anyone with a patch that says "better a sister in a whore house than a brother on a rice burner" and he meant it, I have. Ever been in a fight at 3AM in a camp at Sturgis over someone on a riceburner, I was in '87. Why do you think that over half of the HD riders out there won't wave at you on a freaking Triumph forcrissakes, because they have it in their heads that they are better than any damned riceburner.

If HD was owned by Honda people would be out with belt sanders taking decals off their trucks. Bet on it.

Your free to have your opinion, but I'd bet huge money you're wrong.

XTR I will agree you are mostly right.

"Perceived American brand" is the perfect description too. Assembled in the US with foreign parts is god's honest truth. My favorite is the "American Brand" touter with kuryakyn grips and/or pegs. "Kuryakyn? Hmmm that sure sounds American, huh?" V-Rod? Foreign engine design.

Let's face it there are very very few 100% American made products now days. But by the same token there are very few products that are 100% made in any single country.

Doom on the dumbass who dares call my S3 a "rice burner"
Reply is always "No rice where it came from dumbshit (dumbass/moron/donkey spunk/stupid fuck/etc - pick the saying that fits best), it runs of pints of English beer!" :violent1: :violent1: :violent1:

Its actually Sheppard's Pie, but whatever. The electronics in Harleys haven't been American for decades. Just look at turn signal relays and such. I hate ignorance, fascism, racism, and many other asshole-isms people come up with. Hard core motorcycle gangs are about as gay as you can get. Get a fucking life. Whats even worse are the guys who work a white collar job and then pose on the weekends. Now I just realized that sitting around on a motorcycle forum pissing and moaning about stupid shit is probably about as lame as you can get...


Nah, white collar poseurs and racists are still worse.

Sanding off decals? What about all the tatoos?
Belt sanders work on tattoos as well. I've seen it done.

Also, (and I know it doesn't mean much today) Kuryakyn is supposedly an actual American company, listed as Kuryakyn Holdings from Wisconsin. I agree, it definitely doesn't sound or look American and may not be when you dig deep enough, who knows.

Like XTR I have seen violence done in the name of the mentioned "American Product" and have also bet on how long a honda would run without oil (before being burned) at full throttle. Pretty impressive actually, one lasted over 2 minutes before it seized.
