    I think lay offs are common everywhere, especially when companies are witnessing a decline in revenues. I think it is paramount for Harley to try and cut costs where possible.

    I also got my bike second hand and whereas it may not be the most comprehensive, it actually suits me at the moment. I think going for an almost perfect insurance cover would be costly IMO.

    I didn't know they were compatible; thanks for that info Hog Pen. If I was your friend Tazz, I'd just try it out first and see whether there was any compatibility. There is never any harm in trying,...

    If this is the case, then it is definitely worth investing here. I always look at investing in stock from a long-term perspective and this is definitely something worth considering.

    Perhaps the motorcycle manufacturers have invested in years of research and development and powerful bikes are being re-introduced into the roads. I think riders are buying into this idea.
