You asked me what’s going on with the sale of MV Agusta by Harley-Davidson? Well, only rumors that Harley is talking with 2 potential buyers. One would be BMW. The other one would be Paul Berlusconi and a group of investors. Paul is the brother of Silvio Berlusconi, the very controversial Italian Prime Minister involved in a series of corruption lawsuits, sex scandals and a high profile divorce. My opinion is that Harley should keep MV Agusta and uses the Italian manufacturer experience – design and performance skills – to improve its own lineup aimed at the young crowd – Was Harley-Davidson Museum unsafe for children? 42-year-old David Salsbury, a Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Captain, was arrested by police at the museum last Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree sexual assault of a child. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Salsbury was officially charged yesterday with 18 counts of sexual misconduct. Included in the 18 counts were, repeated sexual assaults of children as well as possession of child pornography – Although the overall number is down, Horry County in South Carolina where Myrtle Beach is located tops State list for fatal motorcycle crashes and injuries. Horry County has topped the list since 2005.

Just learned that “Destination Daytona” fired a mailing explaining that they have a lot of 2010 Harleys available, will give you a gift certificate of $20.00 if you show up to have your current bike appraised (of course hoping that you will sign for a brand new one.)
