1. Where did you see this?

2. If this venture succeeds where Harley failed, maybe that will cause a reexamination of the reasons for the failure and, ultimately, Harley and it's loyal customers will all benefit.

Love the bikes, and glad to see him back building bikes...

But for $40,000.....I can buy a couple of other brand bikes, or another Harley & a sport bike.
