Something like this wouldn't happen to a motorcycle manufacturer. All accidents are written off to rider error, and seldom is anything investigated otherwise, and if there was equipment failure it was due to unautorized modifications, which rendered a more dangerous situation.

The Dems'll just twist it to say these "transgressions" occurred during the Bush administration, and that they will do everything in their power to institute laws to prevent it. That's what they did with the corporate reporting scandals/crises.

Oh thank you. I was losing so much sleep.

Down with corporations! Power to the people!

Except Hinckley, though. Gotta hand it to a company that has been making bikes for 900 years.
