$70 million wouldn't even pay for the permits to build a new factory in the USA.

You snag the first post and don't say anything? What's wrong with you? Do you know how many adolescents would trade places with you in a heartbeat? On another note, 70 mil wouldn't even cover paying off all the honest Dems here in Chicago, and you wouldn't even get to the permits. Gotta pay off the Union bosses first.

Between Dem "compassion" and Repub "budget cutting" I'd say we're about bankrupt. Who's gonna pay for it all?



You and me.

Here is a link to some production specs from 1960 to 2000. Looks like Honda made 892,586 bikes in the year 2000 and Yamaha made 822,409 the last year of the list.



Don't know where they stack up now but I heard Honda is over a million a year now.



Looking at the history Yamaha was bigger at one time when the made 2 and half million bikes in a year.

Amen to that! Our company just finished an upfit that was 7 months behind schedule and 2 mil over budget. This was on a 3 mil project that was to take 8 months! I have never seen such shennigans! I have been here 3 years and the level of corruption is astounding. I could go on for days but suffice to say, any sympathy I may have had for unions and the democrats' ideal of social engineering is absolutely gone. To paraphrase, we have faced the enemy and it is...ourselves!

US cars are now deemed more reliable than Japanese...US companies are now outsourcing software development to the Ukraine and Africa because India’s labor is too expensive... My VW built in Mexico/Argentina has less than 30K miles, four recalls and been in the shop for warranty work six times...And now the Japanese are outsourcing manufacturing labor to the Indonesians...

BRAND recognition is everything.
