They should make a $17 coin with his likeness on it - primarily 'cuz that's how many of them it'll take to equal a current quarter - but also because he should take his Harvard Degree in-hand, and Rule us All because of his Superior Superiorness.

Maybe the mint could issue some Obama 57 State Commemorative Coins.

odd that HD would do that. how much does an open house cost, anyway?

HD has lost its vision
 
Not everyone will agree with me, but HD has painted itself into a corner. It has marketed itself to the weekend biker, and has turned away from the rest of the motorcycling world. Yes, bikers (real and "part-time") love the feel of a real machine, and Harley does it best. But they have never been able to attract the rest of the motorcycling world into their shops. Too many buyers are turned off by the posturing of the pseudo-biker, and don't want to go into the showroom. So guys and gals that want to tour go buy a copy when in their heart they'd rather have an Electraglide. How about a mid-size (1000cc) touring bike? How about a 750 anything? Or a 500? Oh ... not cool enough? But the Big Four makes zillions of bucks on them. Gotta make money to stay in business. Yeah, lots of riders would have bought Buells (which were really getting good), but HD insisted they be sold only in HD showrooms. Why not have them sold at shops that offer multiple brands? The object is to get them on the street, right? Eventually the "bad-ass" image will lose its popularity among the masses and HD will have too small a client base to sell machines to. No, I'm not a 1%er, and don't pretend to be. I've had my 64Duo for 32 years. I have an '05 Classic, and inherited my older brother's Pan-Knuckle-Shovel hard tail (it's a freakin' rat). I'm not new to all this and have watched the Motor Company for years. I would really hate to see the mark die off.
