Looks like BMW has bought a controlling interest in HD, dumped a lot of the top brass and has plans to put BMW's in every Harley showroom. They hope to double their {BMW} market share from 4 to 8%. This has to be the biggest news in our industry in decades and it will be fun to see how it all shakes out... so what does everyone think about this?

The newest issue of BMW Magazine goes into detail. Simply Googling the topic brings up a lot of articles. Believe it or don't, makes no difference to me.

Another April 1st article where Kawasaki buys HD.


What we need is an article telling of how HD bought out Polaris and will continue production of all Indian bikes in place of their current models.

OK, OK... The new, as in April first issue of BMW Owners News has the article. My next door neighbor {who still owns my old BMW R80 RT told me about it and I just went next door to read it for myself. One of my first clues that this is a scam Aprils Fools story was a quote from BMW Exec Wolfgang Snitzelhagandaz then there was a quote from Hans Gruber. Boy did I get hosed!

Guys this article appears on BMW forums in 2011. Something is not right with this. Do a Google search and see what you find, only forums no news articles.

There is an HD dealership out here in Temecula CA. One side is HD and the other side is BMW.
