Went and visited the folks at Volusia Motorsports this weekend with some harley riding buds. They enjoyed the hospitality and free lunch and spent an hour in the dealership checking out all the bikes. The staff were all friendly and on hand to answer all their questions. A very nice experience. Then we rode 1/4 mile up the road to a HD dealership. A sales rep approached me and said what bike do you want to ride home today? Then he asked me what I rode. I had on my Victory hat and Victory shirt and just looked at him. Finally after 3 to 5 sec's of a stare down I said really? He said that HD was the only American motorcycle and then went on to say that Victory was a Canadian company. I should be riding a Harley the only American bike. My buddies just looked at this guy then looked at me and new what was going to happen next.
I just looked at him and said "guys like you are the reason I never desired to own a Harley besides the fact that they are slow, overpriced, and un engineered motorcylces that handle like shit. I believe you are mistaking Polaris for Bombardier the Canadian Co." Plus our accessory parts are made in house like our bikes in the USA and not shipped from Tiawan." We all left together and my buds were pissed at this guys attitude. One of them said "way to defend my man" Then I realized that all I did was bring myself down to his level but it felt good anyway.
So I have to ask !
Is Polaris a Canadian company? I kept asking myself all weekend.
So I have to ask. Is it? No where on the Polaris site does it say where they started from .
