Like everything else Harley has it is over priced.Harley is one of the most greedy companies in North America, it is all about the dollar and that my friend will be how Harley will cut its own throat.I ride a Harley and love it but when I go shopping for parts 99% of the time it will not be an OEM part. Very few Harley OEM parts are better then the after market.

FXDRYDR is reading this now saying WTF is this? FXDRYDR is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Yep. Especially when it's priced as if it was made here. Rather be feeding Americans than starving some Chinese guy while putting the huge markup into HD's executive bonuses... Just sayin'.

Guys hate to break it to you...it's not just Harley. The other day I happened to be shopping with my girlfriend (yeah I'm secure enough to admit that, plus it was only one store ). It was Nordstrom Rack, a division of the high end retailer. Anyhow, I decided to look for a winter coat while there, and being the label checker I am, found every coat to be made in China. I looked at a few dozen different ones too...this is the world now, everything is made there. We can try our best to not buy any of the crap they make but it's harder and harder these days. You wouldn't mind so much if they made quality merchandise, but the fact is that it's all junk too!

We like to think that we are buying into American Made with Harley Davidson but this isn't the case....and now as we speak, Obama is working on more free trade with Asia!!!

I hear you there brother. Harley Davidson vs Metrics? Made in the good ole US of A? Harley Davidson is indeed a greedy MF of a company. Maybe if all the supporters they have start a f'n boycott on their motorclothes, accessories, service dept chgs, etc they may get the message. Harley's are very popular and it has gone to their heads and pocketbooks. Fckem!!!

Not to disagree but lets not fool ourselves, all corporations are greedy as fjck! Anymore it's simply why they exist.

How many Americans are willing to work in a factory for $0.80 hr like they do in China?
Quote:
Factories are increasing payments to workers. Governments are raising minimum wages.

The incomes of factory workers are still low compared to the workers in United States and Europe. The hourly earning in southern China is only about 80 cents per hour.

The workers from rural provinces usually earn about $200 a month, working six or seven days a week.
Link

No one even wants to work for $8.00, most complain if it's "only" $16 hr. 20 times more than what the Chinese are paid.

If you have a company and you need something made, no matter where you have it made, you will want it done as inexpensive as possible right? HD is doing what makes good business sense for them. If they went out of business and you found out it was due to high operation costs, you'd probably chastise them for that too. Every business deserves to make a profit, and nothing is overpriced as long as consumers are buying.

If you don't like "Made in China," change it! It's our own faults because we demanded cheap. You can still find plenty of stuff made in the USA if you look around.

We are suffering the same where I live. Made in China, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, India, Pakistan. I'm sure in a lot of cases we are supporting sweat shop labour and exploitation in these countries. You will never stop big corporation greed, it seems everyone is out to make fast profit rather than long term growth. One thing is fact, these countries are not going to stay cheap for very long. The Chinese are starting to wake up to the fact they are worth more than a bowl of rice to supply the west with cheap goods. They're looking to improve their lot all the time and who can blame them. If you read the right press, the stories of industrial unrest are becoming more common. Western companies can afford to pay much higher wages and still make a gigantic profit from these countries. It's all about greed people.

Greedy Edit; Jeans made in Pakistan are s**t. They have tape measures 4 inches shorter than anyone else.
