H-D cell phone? Now there's an idea that makes the beanie helmet make sense!



$399 list price? Who wouldn't pay that for a limited function but beautifully chrome finished American product?



All it needs is a fringed aftermarket holster...

Actually, Motorola (not to be confused with MOtorola) does make some chips in the USA...you know, the ones used in land mines to take the Cambodian kid's legs off. Now THAT'S as American as apple pie.

And I would bet one month's salary (of yours) that you can't find one piece of HD advertising that even says "made in America" anywhere.



Personally, I'm glad that you like European and Japanese bikes more than "American" ones, that just leaves more HD's for people who really like and appreciate them.

Yes but what is a "American" motorcycle? There are models of "Japanese" motorcycles that are little more than Harley copies but are made in the USA with a higher proportion of domestically produced parts than any Harley.



The "American" car manufacturers play this game too, but their cars are so loaded with foreign parts, assembled in Canada and Mexico that it is ridiculous to buy one based on "patriotism".



GM owns huge interest in Toyota. Ford controls Mazda. Harley buys its forks, shocks and carburetors in Japan. Everybody buys their electronics form Malaysia or the Phillippines, including Bosch.



It is impossible to consider any bikes or cars to be "American" any more. It is foolish to think one is supporting the US economy any more than any of a dozen other nations by "buying American" when it comes to transportation.
