    I have not heard of the Harley Davidson Foundation before this. It is certainly a worthy cause but I have to wonder if the MoCo can afford this. I wonder if the "pledge" is different from an outright donation. Maybe they are pledging to donate a portion of sales or something. Don't get me wrong, I'm a veteran I just question the wisdom of this given the current economy.

    Afford it? They could cover it with T-shirt profits for 30 days worth of sales....

    They always give large sums to MD every year, they are a corporate sponsor of Jerry Lewis Telethon:s

    I would bet this is a drop in the bucket for the Motor Company, even in tough economic times. It just shows that sometimes people (even business people) can be motivated by more than profit margins.

    Just more reasons to add to the list of why I own a Harley.
