Tragic. They relocate. Start the company anew. Then the trust behind the company goes down in a terrible fashion. RIP guys. To US Highland- we are sorry for your loss.

Holy crap! Malmberg and Bales seemed like really good guys when I met them at the Indy Show in Feb. I hope Highland can keep up the momentum it was developing.

This really and truly sucks. I was just reading about their new bikes and they looked awesome. The Dual Sport with the Spondon frame looked like my next bike.

No company should ever let the top three execs get on the same jet...let alone the same private plan. That was damn stupid.
