    Hey John,
    Glad you and the bike got home safe. That was a hell of a place to have a FD issue!

    Glad that ended well.

    I'm not sure what the ROI is, but on gross sales the Motorrad division is about 2% of the company's revenue. Interestingly, that is the same percentage as Buell was to H-D.
