- J! A bad day at the track is better than a good day at work? I don't know HD bikes...care to enlighten my ignorance to dispell that ignorance? Is 177 yours? On this small tablet I can't zoom to see the motor large enough, it does not appear to be a twin. Was it a Buell based motor? I watched two of the recent 3 part series on ?Discovery? On Harley and the Davidsons. The story the dramatized was very well done. Who knows if it had any liberties, clearly it was heavily influenced by HD. The bankruptcy that the government financed to return them to a solvent business again many have criticized. It was an attempt to support American manufacturing and I think they were the largest or virtually the only large American motorcycle company. I don't recall the details, long ago in I think it was HS economics had it as part of the study where the text and teacher provided the reasons the government had stated were their basis to do the bailout.
I think the Japanese bikes were eating their breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Was it AMC- Harley? The Harleys had serious quality problems which were corrected (after the bailout), slowly by addressing those corrections that were needed. That caused a good debate in class on merits for and against the bailout.
