Default Changing of the guard

This another sign of the GPTB and the V-Twing crown losing it grip on sponsers... Superbikes will target a younger audience with growing purchasing power. TWT was great when it focused on racing and non-cruiser stuff.

Al Gore's dream of pricing gas so high that no one could afford it is coming true.

Funny it takes W in the whitehouse for it to happen... Do record profits for the oil companies have anything to do with it?.. Nah can't be.. They wouldn't do that..

No, it's the natural progression of marketing. You beat one aspect of the market to death (the chopper thing) now you go after the squid sportbike aspect. That will run it's course in 4-5 years like the choppers have and than they will go into the streetfighter segment...and than maybe dualsport and so on until there is a show about racing hi-powered Vespas in retirement communities.

We need to smash all big monoplistic companies that dominate the marketplace, squeezing out competition and paying huge unwarranted salaries to the CEOs.



Like Boeing.

Actually, they'll go after squids, see their ad revenues plummet because the youngsters don't have any money and then they'll go after the middle aged guys again.
