HARLEY WILL CUT KANSAS CITY JOBS!!!



Another sign of the consumer economy slowing and local workers paying the price first and foremost . . .

KC Biz Journal: Harley cuts will hit KC plant

Deets:

Harley-Davidson Inc. plans to lay off 180 people at its plants in Milwaukee and Kansas City, according to union officials.

Harley-Davidson employs more than 600 people at its 400,000-square-foot plant at 11401 Congress Ave., near Kansas City International Airport. The plant produces the Sportster, Dyna, Street and V-Rod families of motorcycles. It's unclear how many of the 180 affected positions will be in Kansas City.

You decide . . .

In ways this does not surprise me. Harley has a lot of competition out there it didn't have 10 years ago. There are a lot of good looking scooters to choose from and I am sure in the long run this is starting to hurt the Harley Davidson sales.

Harley caters to baby boomers who are becoming too old to motorcycle. The company has a future as bright as a flip phone manufacturer.

We call them "geezer cycles" because of who rides them. The young drug-runners around our neighborhood use the super-fast and VERY quiet Japanese bikes. The police don't even bother chasing them.

I got a good idea for ya!! Hope real hard in one hand and shit in the other hand. See which one fills up quicker for you. You blind brain-dead Goofus. By the way, scrotus doesn't make it out of his first year without dying or being impeached. You heard it here first, pig face

It's all about the free market system and market share . Several other manufacturers of this type of bike make higher quality products at a better price . The consumer decides what product that they're gunna drop $25 large on . They do the research , test drive , network and talk to other folks the make up their own minds . The quality and reliability of Harley's have declined as the price his gone out of reach for most middle class biker wanna be's , so they are getting Hondas , Yamahas , or Indians that don't cost as much as a house and will run forever without breaking down ¡!

This doesn't have anything to do with geezers. It has everything to do with a company that builds motorcycles that are cool but break all the time. The average millennial has no mechanical aptitude and his little skinny legs aren't strong enough to ride a Harley.

The most manly of millenials is still a total pussy. The manliest vehicle a millenials owns is either a Prius or a Volkswagen Beetle.

Harley was building inferior bikes way before Trump was in office.

Us old folks are getting to old for big bikes , to heavy to hold up. And operate due to arthritis and bad knees and hip replacement . We're dumping our bikes at a huge loss so we can afford to get hip , knee , wrist , shoulder surgery so we can operate our rascals and walkers . Go ahead and make fun of us , you youngsters will get old if you live long enough and don't die of brain and testicular cancer from using your smartphone and tablets , BITCHES ¡!

Harley was losing money long before Trump took office. My next door neighbor has been laid off since September of last year. He was told don't expect to come back at you might want to look for another job.

Too much competition like someone else mentioned, Harley met with Trump earlier in the year for publicity and had a made for tv movie about how Harley Davidson got started late last year. But it was too little to late to try to jump start the brand of motorcycles.

I have NEVER seen so many ignorant, know-nothing, loud mouth COCKSUCKERS gathered in one place in my life.
The main problem is that you never had the balls or money to have a REAL motorcycle.
FUCK ALL YOU PUSSIES.

Had balls and money for a real motorcycle, bought a MotoGuzzi, of course! Wanna race, PUSSY?

Oh forgot Harley Asswipes can't run against other bikes, they only race each other, so they stand some chance of winning!

THEY ARE GEEZER CYCLES!
