    People will soon forget. Most have forgotten about another attack on American soil and that was on 12-7-1941. Some reports estimate a greater number of lives lost on 12-7-1941 than on 9-11-2001. Yet, look outside and see how many Toyotas and Hondas are here. People that forgot about Pearl Harbor Day are now supporting the economy of the nation that bombed us. Very sad!!

    @Upswept, by your logic then, no country that we have bombed should want to buy American products either. That means we might as well stop trying to sell our products in the following countries: Japan, Germany, Korea, Guatamala, Indonesia, Cuba, Congo, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Grenada, Lebanon, Libya, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Iran, Panama, Iraq, Kuwait, Somalia, Bosnia, Sudan, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, and Yemen.

    Toyota has plants in Mississippi, Kentucky, Texas, Indiana, Alabama, and West Virginia. Honda has plants in Ohio, Indiana, and Alabama. These plants are employing American workers and using parts manufactured in the U.S.

    According to a 2007 report by CNN, Honda purchases $12 billion dollars worth of product from American suppliers annually. According to the report, HD’s total revenue in 2007 was less than $6 billion. These numbers are outdated, but serve the purpose of providing some sense of scale.

    I’m all for supporting the United States and its manufacturers, but if you don’t want to support the Japanese, you’d better park your Harley. Forks made in Japan, wheels cast in Japan, carbs made in Japan, and on and on.

    The war ended almost 70 years ago and since then Japan has been a stalwart ally.

    Chris, all Harley-Davidson cast wheels are made at the New Castalloy factory in Adelaide, South Australia and have been for many years. Harley-Davidson own the factory and have just guaranteed continued operations there for four more years. Other than that, your own logic seems spot on.

    I rode with thousands of others to DC on 911. What a sight and experience.
