    It is not bad numbers unless they are your numbers. ATV’s down the highest going into Hunting season, is bambi safer this year.

    Remember the Year before’s numbers, how much thet were off, from the Year before? Now, what about the Year before, the Year before? So what”s the Bottom line from 06′? Bet it’s at least 50%, for all the Major Brands!

    You voted for Obama, I didn’t

    That’s a ridiculous comment, when everybody knows George Bush, Dick Chaney, and the Republicans got us into this recession. All the money that should be available for motorcycle purchases was poured into a needless war in Iraq, and stolen by greedy stockbrokers, and junk bond traders!

    Harley Guy,

    Now that is a ridiculous statement if I ever heard one!

    Remember November 2nd is just around the corner … we will see then how happy everyone is with the Obama clan then !

    Never lose track of the fact that: NO MATTER WHAT IT IS BUSHS’ FAULT!

    Over & Out,

    Martin I am all for profit, I guess though if some of the gains are the farmers two-seaters well maybe bambi is safe. Although I am gearing up for hunting season, go figure.
    Bet that government, military contract for the Ranger based vehicle isn’t going to hurt them either maybe could even part of the projected gains.
