Motorcycle Industry Fast News

fastnewscyrilhuzeblog2111Shares of Harley-Davidson Inc. declined 5.1% yesterday Thursday after an analyst of Goldman Sachs recommended investors sell the motorcycle maker’s stock, saying bike sales fell as much as 40 percent in October and November and demand remains uncertain – Do you know that it is illegal in the State Of Indiana to sell or trade a motorcycle on Sundays. Eventually the State politicians decided to make it legal in July 1010 (legislative bill)

Harley Davidson looking for bands for TV commercial. Are you in a band looking to boost your credibility with bikers? Then how about recording a song for Harley Davidson? Carmichael Lynch, a Minneapolis advertising agency working for the iconic motorcycle manufacturer, is looking for music showcasing Harley’s Dark Custom line of bikes. They’re looking for bands that sound like the Black Keys, White Denim, the White Stripes, Wolfmother or the 13th Floor Elevators. If that’s you, e-mail links to your music (no mp3s!) to Freddie.Richards@CLYNCH.COMHarley-Davidson Racing is shrinking its activities and will probably go racing in 2010 in dirt and drag racing.

    “declined 5.!% testerday Thursday after an analyst of Goldman Sachs recommended investors sell…” And thus Goldman Sachs creates a nice discounted price for themselves. Oldest trick in the book.

    Setmour. Wrong. Goldman Sachs can’t buy the stock after such a recommendation. It would be illegal.

    Bailout? Why?

    Wasn’t Goldman Sachs in the Bailout? Why?

    FWIW, Wisconsin is the same on motor vehicle dealerships not being able to sell on Sunday.

    This is sound advise. At some point I knew this would happen. HD has lost some 40 percent of its total company value and is selling less and less motorcycles. Sooner or later the stock will reflect that reality. Comes at a bad time for HD thou. Things are going to get better for HD as the economy comes back, If they keep cutting back and saving everywhere they can and stick to building the bikes we want and stay away from bikes that don’t make profits like the Buell. But I think the stock will take a hit before we see any turn around. Lets all hope this economy turns around sooner rather than later. Anyway that is my two cents worth. It has got to be worth what I charged you all for it.
