    The link to the full article in your post shows it's been removed...

    Here's a link to the a very short superbikeplant.com article about it..

    Soup :: Honda To Close US Motorcycle Plant :: 02-27-2008

    What's not to believe? There taking the production out of the states. Probably to save jobs in Japan.

    Oh well...

    Anyway, those that are interested in motorcycle racing, check out the link... Lots of good info about the Buells racing the 2009 AMA season...

    you know there are a lot of people on this forum that are riding aHarley and to them it is a "foreign" product. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't anyone outside the U.S.A. on a Harley riding an "import".

    Funny I;m back and forth between Canada and the U.S. so often that I kind of think of it as one country. But you are right I had to IMPORT my Harley.
