Shucks, that's just bidness! All the Harley riders I talk to believe in the dream with the same intensity of a tulip bulb dealer in 17th century Holland. And the end results will be the same.

yet another neon-lit sign pointing to the decline of western society as we know it.



am too fat. i got fired at work for being incompetent. my child's grades in school are poor. and now, my harley stocks are underperforming.



must be time to sue someone.



gadzooks, when will people develop the spine to accept that ***** happens? until they do, and until lawyers decide to act ethically, we will slowly, inexorably lose ground to countries (and cultures) with some moral fiber.



sad, very sad.

it has nothing to do with harley or asian business practices. whenever high-profile stocks decline there are lawyers who lick their chops and file a class-action suit.



except in asia.



so i'm afraid you've got it reversed, bud. it's americans acting like americans. land of the free and home of the lawsuit.

Notice that they are still looking for a lead plantiff. This is just some law firm fishing for a payoff. It happens if you come in too high or too low compared to your earnings guidance.



There is a whole category of law firms specializing in this type of blackmail.



This will all go away when we enact real tort reform and a loser pays system.

... or that you can actually LOSE money invested in the Stock Market.



Harleys not going anywhere, millions of people Like Harleys or the "Harley thing" whatever. I would think it would be a good time to invest in Harleys stock, seriously. Those that lost money can be consoled by the fact that their money didn't go down the drain, others just have it now...

Maybe H-D dealers will be less snotty? Maybe bikes will be in inventory? What will the Teutuls do if the Harley market goes bust? Stay tuned.

I doubt it will affect the Teutels one bit, since they sell choppers, not Harleys.



The other two things you mentioned would be awesome.

"and until lawyers decide to act ethically", can't remember the last time a string of words caused such pause, "when pigs fly" immediately came to mind.

I haven't been to a harley shop that didn't have excess inventory in the last 5 years. I am suprised it took the lawyers this long.



I wonder if the dealers will finally stop trying to rip people off by selling for thousands over msrp.



Good news, great deals on Halloween costumes though.
