    Why the stock buy-back? Why not invest in a new bike design, mfg process or marketing campaign that will generate better ROI?

    I am sure this means the folks actually building the products in Milwaukee, Kansas City and York will benefit from this as much as the share holders? No line workers, no motorcycles, no stock share profit.
