Let us remember why most people purchased a Harley Davidson motorcycle in the first place. I say it wasn’t because it was built in America or, built by Union Workers. (I'm Union) No, it was because we liked the looks and the sound, it wasn’t the price. They built a good product and people responded. It is not only the fault of Harley Davidson that we live in a capitalistic society. Harley Davidson must turn a profit or risk financial suicide. Let me say something that is probably truer, but often not view this way. We in America need Harley Davidson more than the company needs us. See; let’s say the company and the motorcycles all went away forever. What else could replace the business that Harley Davidson riders provide as a group to small towns, coffee shops, restaurants, hotel, motels, venue sites, clothing lines stores, boot shops, repair shops, dealerships, gathering spots and the less traveled cities across America. Or, what else would relieve us from the stress of along work week. Yes, we don’t want anyone to lose their jobs. But, America is at a crossroad that we all must come to grips with. Because of our bitter sweet globe business partners around the world, we in America now have to adjust our wages and way of life. We must stand by Harley Davidson in these difficult times until better days. We should all support our local dealers when possible. We owe the joy of many friends and long weekends to the employees and owners of the Harley Davidson Company.
