from a press release by my old publicly traded company:

this is a company that went from $12 a share to penny stocks, and may as well have been delisted. or obt.
the president was fired over a fiasco about his dream tv show. he basically bet the farm on this show and lost. paid big bucks to buy out the star's contract because he sucked. the show went on, and was critically acclaimed. ratings? not so much. a second season was ordered anyways, but we were the only ones not able to come up with financing. show folded, prez got canned. company ended up in a reverse merger, moved head office to toronto, and still is a penny stock.
I think all these "biker build shows" on TV and all the independent companys that are building bikes are cutting into Harleys share of the market. Bigdog and Vengence to name two, make bikes alot nicer than any HD. A person on a Harley at Sturgis during bike week better have a flag on there bike if they want to find it, they all look alike.
HD was sure doing a good job of convincing the public that there old technology was superior? what ever, buy the bike, jacket, chaps, vest and god don't forget the black t-shirt, nothing like all black on a hot day.( oh yea the attitude that comes free with the bike)
Then there's all the crap components on the bike like the grips and mirrors etc. Gotta get rid of them and buy better ones. For $25k they could do better!
I used to own one, what was I thinking? Now I can't stand the sight of them. Anyways I'am done my little rant. Cheers

It's kinda funny though. I thought the new Harley line of "Heritage Springer" Pregnancy Tests, "Billet Fatboy" Saladspinners, "V-Rod" Coathangers and "Baby's First Harley" diaper rash creme were gonna put Harley back in the Power Cruiser category.
