Thanks for the link, davyt! I had found the same news release on motorsports network.
It's probably a transparent change, whoever takes on the job. Bloor owns the company, and he is very involved in every detail of company ops. I've asked Corporate Lumps if they can do this or the that- y'know, in response to what the Yanks want- and they all say that if the Boss doesn't want it, it ain't happening.
It seems all the US personnel do is divvie up the bikes, as they take them out of the containers, to the different dealers.
I don't know if you have had the same experience, but the folks at the show (Atlanta, in my case) are pretty clueless about the bikes.
