BlogTalk Radio - 8PM (EST) Sunday Night
Posted by: McQ on Sunday, July 01, 2007

Listen Live

Tonight. 8pm EST.

Call in number: (718) 664-9614

OK, I'm solo tonight (Dale's taking his motorcycle class), and need some help. I plan on talking a little bit about Iraq and immigration, but want to spend the bulk of the time dissecting the 3rd Democrat "debate". Why after telling everyone I wasn't that interested in them? Well because it was the panderfest of all panderfests, and it included some misleading info and some statements that should scare you to death.

UPDATE [Dale]: Yes, while Bruce was doing the podcast, I was doing this:

OK, granted, it's a banged up 125cc Eliminator that looks like a child's toy under me, but, really, wouldn't you rather do this than sit in a stuffy podcast studio?

By the way, I haven't wanted to clutter up QandO with any more of this motorcycle stuff, but I still don't have my Harley, an ongoing nightmare of incompetent buffoonery that I recount here. Hopefully, however, it'll be over tomorrow morning at 9:00am.

Perhaps linking to the transcript would be helpful...especially since I didn’t watch the debate.

Dale, I tried to warn you... HD sucks on several levels...

Just wait till you need something repaired.

And should your battery dies (in about 8 months for no effing reason other than the bike hates you), be ready for a minor bike teardown to get to the damned thing.

Dude, you shoulda bought a Honda...

And I might very well have. If they didn’t look like sh*t, and I wanted to have real bikers point and laugh at me.

Tell them you got sick of HD customer service, and they’ll stop laughing...

Seriously, HD treats it’s customers like Ford treated the american consumer. Like crap, and they had zero reason to improve.

"It’s a Harley". Men’s eyes water, they get this wistful look on their face, and they want to get one. Forget the stories, they want one, and HD can’t be that bad...

Once people stop buying their bikes, they will realize they have made a mistake.

Like Ford has.

Scott & Dale - the rumour is your disagreement might soon be a moot point. Denied of course, but...

As my father just said: "Why the hell would Honda buy Harley?"

Honda and the other bike-makers not in the US (ok, that’s everyone but HD) are making huge inroads here with sales. It is, as I said, what happened to Ford. People bought and bough and bough ’American’ because it was the "right thing to do" and made you "cool", until people figured out that them japanese were making a car that was far and away the superior automobile.

Honda and BMW and Yamamha could just sit and wait 3 years for Harley to go under, and loot the corpse.

Are you insane?

In the last 10 years, Harley-Davidson stock prices have gone from 10 to 60. Earnings growth is projected to be between 11% and 17% over the next year. Stock Scouter rates HOG as a 9 out of 10. Institutions are buying the stock heavily.

It sounds like you haven’t been keeping up with current events.
