Well, why not? The CEO of Harley came to them from Johnson Controls (HVAC and car batteries, weird combo) and never rode a motorcycle before become Harley's CEO. He's the same doosh bag who moved all of Johnson Controls battery brands to Mexican manufacturing plants and who sold MV Agusta and closed Buell within weeks of taking over as CEO. I imagine he will bond immediately with a disgraced engineer from GM who is under a legal cloud. Birds of a feather.
I live in a parallel universe but have a vacation home in reality.
