Kamala Harris allies do a conference call with Joe Biden campaign staff and we get to read about it...

... at Politico. So embarrassing! Can't he at least look like he's in command, seeing what's good and bad in the people he knows, making his own decision? Why am I able to see that there's a "vetting unit" that includes Christopher Dodd, who's said something about Harris having "no remorse" for her "little girl was me" remark at a debate last year? I'm seeing the names of all these people on the conference call who were pitching Kamala Harris to Biden's people:The conference call included severa...

The Qianjiang QJ350 Will be Harley-Davidson’s Small Displacement Machine

It Says so Right on the Engine The Chinese company Qianjiang has partnered with Harley-Davidson to help the company produce a small-displacement model for Asian markets. The Harley bike was rumored to have an engine would be a 338cc, and now it seems that either that engine will be a 350 or the 338cc engine will be called a 350. Either way, the engine in the Qianjiang QJ350 is the engine that will be in the new Harley, and much of the rest of the bike will likely appear there, too.  How do I kn...

Ready to Cruise Around? Cruisers aren’t the massive sellers they used to be. However, manufacturers still sell a lot of them, which is why the cruiser style is still a big part of the industry.

Harley-Davidson's new CEO came from Puma and is an unlikely leader for the American icon. See how he could reverse the motorcycle maker's fortunes. (HOG)

In early 2020, with the company under stress from Wall Street and with a demographic challenge looming as it struggled to attract new riders, Harley-Davidson CEO Matt Levatich stepped down, replaced on an acting basis by board member Jochen Zeitz, who eventually was named CEO. Zeitz swiftly moved to replace Harley's growth strategy with a retrenchment around core products. Harley has been here before, and Zeitz's strategy — "Rewire," as he calls it — could work, but it isn't without risk. Visi...

“Ever drink espresso while getting high at an Ikea?” – Mr. Regular Mr. Regular, for those who don’t know, is a bit of an eccentric. His reviews are often laced with dirty language, jokes about male members, and fart noises, but they’re also in-depth, interesting, literary, and at times downright touching.

Harley-Davidson Will Eliminate 700 Jobs Worldwide by the End of 2020

2020 Has Not Been a Good Year Few people are having a good year in 2020, and if you’re a part of Harley-Davidson, things are about to get worse. The company announced that it will be cutting 700 jobs around the world. Two hundred of those 500 were unfilled positions, though, so it’s more like 500 jobs, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Bullit’s V-Bob 250 Looks Like a Killer Cruiser for European Markets

Some Harley-ish Style Bullit doesn’t sell motorcycles here in the U.S., but I sure wish they did. The company makes classic-looking bikes that are really cool and affordably priced. The latest from the business is the V-Bob 250 cruiser. The bike looks like a Harley knock-off, but a good one. Honestly, it’s the kind of beginner bike I’d have loved to see Harley build years ago. But anyway, Bullit has what looks to be a cool cruiser. Bullit UK Brand Manager, said, “We are really excited to be wel...

Harley-Davidson Is Working on a Self-Balancing System

A Motorcycle Stands Alone Harley-Davidson may have a solution to the issue of motorcycle weight. According to some patents that were recently spotted by Cycle World, the company is working on a self-balancing system for its motorcycles. This makes sense. While Harley generally does a fantastic job of keeping the weight low and manageable, there’s no denying the bikes can get quite heavy. Weight isn’t much of an issue once you get moving, but at lower speeds, you can really feel it. That’s where...
