    Default Lets make America great again..

    ...By flushing out US businesses that don't do as I say. And if that was not crazy enough you've actually got citizens turning against their own home grown brands now.

    Imagine Merkel telling Bavaria to boycott BMW. IT managers might have to switch to Audi, could be a nightmare.

    Trump backs Harley-Davidson boycott in tariff row


    Donald Trump has tweeted that it is "great" that many Harley-Davidson owners plan to boycott the firm as a row over tariffs escalates.
    The US president said "most other firms... including Harley competitors" agreed with his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
    In June, Harley-Davidson said it would move some production out of the US to avoid retaliatory tariffs from the EU.
    Mr Trump has already attacked the move, threatening Harley with higher taxes.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Why would anyone want a Harley anyway. If you must buy an American Cruiser buy a cruiser...buy a Boss Hoss.

    A Harley's iconic - it's like wanting an Aston Martin DB10 when there are better vehicles out there. Or chavs wanting Corsas when they should be looking at a Yaris or Hyundai i10.....

    I ride a Harley, had it for 25 years now.

    A lot of people are not happy with the current management and it makes perfect sense to pressure a company you love to maintain quality or some other factor above pure profit if that is what makes the product desirable to you as a consumer.

    It's not always about the bottom line.
