Is it a shake down or are the Harley Execs guilty of insider trading? The truth usually comes out eventually....i.e. its hard to keep a secret. You are probably right, seems like the Harley Execs would be pretty stupid if they did engage in insider trading. These guys make so much money anyway..Why would they risk it... So I leaning your way. You make a good point about listing their other targets/victims. Good to hear dealer have too many bikes where you are....I would love to have a V-Rod but like you said not at current prices.... I had my pride smacked by an older guy who passed me in some twisties on a V-Rod. The only redeming part of the incident was listening to his bike as it passed me. Love that sound...

Funny, with the amount of lawyers going up, you think their prices woud be coming down. Hmmm, maybe someone should investigate that.



Considering that Harley has been catering to lawyers and other weathy-stockholder types, isn't this like being slapped by the hand that feeds you?

Default How much is enough.

"These guys make so much money anyway...Why would they risk it?"



Answer: Money's a "Jones" just like junk. If you've got a-hole-in-your-soul, the long-geen will do fine. Thing is, a junkie's a junkie! Some just dress better than others. It's all about dopamine.

Did anyone actually read the article? basically alleges that sales growth was falsified by building dealer inventories, leading to false reporting of actual "sales".



Not uncommon..when retaill sales fall, production continues in the hope of sales, inventory builds...production has to adjust. The suit basically says that investors should have been told of this.



Fair enough.



I just but older bikes cheaply when new owners sell after taking the depreciation hit...keep all those new bike tests of the better new bikes coming!!!

He got the boot, after numerous warnings about thread hi-jacking, off topic rants and carpet bombing with his political agenda, Sean refunded his money and showed him the door.

Motorcycle enthusiasts wouldn't be Harley's "target market"?
