There! I an completely justified when I tell the curious that my XB is the best handling stock street motorcycle I have ever ridden.
(even if it does have Chinese wheels)
Maybe it's the Italian frame.
Or the Japanese suspension and brakes.
In either case....did I mention...I love my Buell...

"One surprise is the degree to which GM has been able to move its manufacturing footprint out of the highest markets of North America and Europe. It says 43% of its vehicles are made in low-cost regions such as Mexico, Eastern Europe, India, and Russia with all-in labor costs of less than $15 per hour. As it moves more of its products on to global platforms, those low costs will enable it to become more efficient - and more competitive."

Speaking of China.
We are a big GM town here (the new Cruze) and by chance I just happened to have lunch with one of the VP's of GM who was in town.
An interesting (and disturbing, to me at least) comment he made during our conversation was that while Pontiac sold more vehicles here in the US, GM decided to nix Pontiac and run with Buick, because Buick sold a lot more vehicles in China.
Evidently the Chinese love Buicks - go figure.

Yea, ive heard the same thing about Buick and Chinese folks. They are able to afford those nice cars cuz they all have good manufacturing jobs.
