So you must be a conservative and that is the "one viewpoint" you surround yourself with.

That's just silly. It's not like BMW offers a bike that's in anyway comparable to an Aprilia Tuono or a Mille or a Falco.



It's also possible that if word gets around the business might lose more trade because of loss of good will due to such firing practices. I know that I would never frequent any motorcycle dealership that fired employees for such stupid reasons. Word of mouth is an extremely important source of customers.

How can what one of your employees drives or rides effect sales? As a customer I assure you I couldn't care less how your employees get to work, only that they are competant and honest in their dealings with me and the rest of the buying public.



I go to a specific bike shop because they sell the particular bike I'm interested in, they sell it for a reasonable price, (not neccessarily the "lowest" price) and they have a good parts and service department if I need it.



I really don't think a buyer who wants a Victory, Honda, whatever is going to see a compettitors product in the parking lot and say "gee, I guess I better get one of them instead" How the hell would we know it's an employees bike in the first place?

I think we have a new candidate for the "KPaul Memorial Stupidest Idea" award.

That's because most blue states have higher income and education levels, we don't need government handouts like the hill scroggins in Dumbfukistan.

That's called re-distribution of wealth.



If we were supposed to get back exactly what we paid in then perhaps we should just have no taxes and keep it for ourselves!

Moron.



The man owns the company. He can fire you for whatever he wants.
