    Just announced today that after 49 years with HD he will be retiring effective April 30, 2012. Thoughts?

    One of the driving forces when HD was bought back from AMF. A very innovative man and extreamly perseptive when it comes to market wants and needs. He will be missed.

    The end of a era. It will be interesting, and wonder what changes if any happen now..Maybe like a special edition bike commemorating Willie..

    It comes a day after of whatever how many years that you put the dot.The most important for me is the resume of what you did, and this man did so much for the company.Hope his replacement will continue his dream and put a small stone on the famous company.
