    Yuo know if you can afford it, certainly sounds like fun. But we are in a region where you can buy a house for less. I have met the guys at the new dealerships great people. I doubt that the after market group are pulling for them. almost cheaper to buy a new one then a used one.

    Well it's been through tough times before and survived.

    Absolutely right on. The salad days are over for H-D. Expect the stock to be in single digits mid '09. Many H-D riding baby boomers have watched 40-50% of their retirement savings evaporate this year. Nobody is buying that over-priced iron anymore. If anything, they are trying to sell the hogs they have (adding to the glut).
