Because I know you boyz like things short, I'm going to do this in a number of entries and there will be more than one today and over the weekend: stay tuned for breaking speculation ; )
This is the first in what we know and what it suggests:
Through a misdirected communication, a source has hard copy evidence that H-D RE has doubled its dealer reps and redrawn its territories. It is unreasonable to see this as anything other than an expectation that RE will be rapidly expanding.
Put this together with the job posting (now no longer posted) that H-D is looking for an instructor operations manager because the number of instructors expected to be poached from state programs is 1,000.
Together this suggests H-D is very confident that RE will, in fact, expand rapidly.
So this is the question I raised the other day and more pertinent today: What are they basing this confidence upon?
