Bleustein has certainly done well by Harley Davidson. No criticism of Buell intended, just that Bleustein is more the proven individual IMHO.

What's wrong with Buell?

Look at the subject....much more up Bleustein's alley.Buell is a brilliant engineer but his merger with HD was precisely so he could rely on Harley for this type of expertise(at which they excell)while he concentrates on engineering innovation(at which he excells).

A ha you fool! You've become victim of one of the classical blunders (the most important of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia") but only slightly less well known is "Never attempt to use logic when the person you're dealing with is simply using the thread as a vehicle to denigrate HD".

D'you know.. the funny bit about this is that Gore's claims about the internet, (that he was instrumental in setting it up), are true.



Having said that, I reckon that to represent motorcyclists Gore would have nominated pets.com
