Default Re: Another Record for H-D

Congrats to HD, not spend some of that profit and build me a bike that I want. Or spend more on Buell to do it.

Never owned a cruiser, but have tested many, and I would concur with JB's opinion. If there your style, great.

On another note, Longride I don't remember any post on corparate profit from any other manufacturer (except Ducati I think). Is that because they don't publish it, or because you have not found them (not that I mind the flames that occur on a Harley post).

I wonder if their revenues and earnings reports are put together by the same idiot that thinks the shipping increase of 289,000 to 290,000 bikes is a 10% increase. That is a 0.346 percent increase. Are the rest of the projections that fubar?

I think they are talking about a 10%^ increase in profits, not sales. Which would indicate they plan on increased sales of HD arm chaps, oversized thongs, and dew rags. I guess the projected life span on all that is up and they all must be replaced

2001 600 Ninja listed at 7899.

Today NADA retail = 5095

Kook loses 2804.



2001 DynaGlideSport listed at 13,895

Today NADA retail = 14030

Greyponytailbrotherhood gains 135.



Who're the idiots? The greyponytail brotherhood? Or the Ninja owners?

Bikers do need to stick together. Why do so many H-D riders look down their noses at all the others? Don't matter what you ride and I ride a H-D; but you won't find me at a Hog Rally. I'd rather ride with people who don't give a hoot for your nameplate/image. Ride free or die,NH.

Their motorcycle production from 2002 to 2003 will be increased 10%. The 2003 targeted production was increased an extra 1000 motorcycles, due to even better than expected sales. Nowhere does it say that the increase of 289,000 to 290,000 is a 10% increase. It takes a mind like yours to mess that one up. Try reading a little more carefully.

We did get some BMW sales and profit figures out there. Japanese companies are different. They are diversified corporations that make many products, and finding profits of one division are rarer than hen's teeth. I tried to find Honda's North American motorcycle balance sheets for many months. If you can find one let me know. I can't

One more thought. Try to introduce kids to motorcycling; brothers, nephews, sons, and the girls of course, etc... Their interests may be different now than yours (Motocross, Moto X, Speedway whatever) but I'd bet alot of the Motorcyclists on the road today started out on dirtbikes and minibikes. I believe many worthy lessons in life can be learned with their exposure to our in-common passion. Not everyone is "cut out" to ride, for various reasons but I think it would be to all riders benefit for the sport to grow. Kids seem more willing to try new things than most adults, that's all it took for me.
