That's interesting about their debt being all short term...now I'm wondering why that last 500k isn't there too.
I had read Polaris gave Victory a "get profitable or get shutdown" ultimatum a few years ago. While I was originally looking at Victory I have enough concern they won't be around in 10 years not to buy one. Not to mention the viability of their dealers whereas Harley has a huge network.
Yes, I can't say that risk wouldn't concern me, even though it seems to be limited. I saw a really nice Victory bagger on the highway the other day and thought of you. Damn thing would have looked great stripped down.
Polaris is apparently growing leaps and bounds (obviously from a much smaller base) with the Indian brand. I've seen some on the road and never really liked them, but I can understand the appeal, especially at that price point.
