Thats my point I can't afford a new bike, and old beater ass Harleys still pull stupid money, I'm all for buying american, when i similair product isn't to much more, but when something half as nice with 7x the miles is 5x more, I can't justify it.

I agree, go against every thing your customers want in a bike to please a small minority that want a green bike, most of which think anything made in america is junk, and anything from overseas is the bees knees.
