There are some companies that are willing to keep the assembly and some manufacturing of their product in this country, because of the mentality of the target/end user. I think Victory knows that if they moved the assmbly of a motorcycle (that competes with HD) to another country they would pay for it.

Tell me about it. I'm in the process of restoring a 1978 MGB. I've been about to get about HALF of the electrical stuff to work so far.

you should be able to earn as much as YOUR abilities allow.
not what a union says everyone is worth by extorting from the company

Harley Davidson have an assembly plant in Brazil since 1999 and one in India since 2010. Triumph also have an assembly plant in India. Some of japanese bikes like honda gold wing are built in the USA. When someone lives in Canada or Europe or Latin america, they can check by the serial number where their bike have been assembly...

Basically, any vehicle, whether a bike or car, with a 17 digit VIN will have the country of manufacture in the first digit of the VIN.
