HARLEY-DAVIDSON REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2009 RESULTS

THE COMPANY LOWERS FULL-YEAR SHIPMENT PLANS AND PROVIDES RESTRUCTURING UPDATE

Earnings Drop Reflects Impact of Lower Shipments, One-Time Reclassification of Finance Receivables and Goodwill Write-Off Related to HDFS – Decline in Retail Motorcycle Sales Prompts Shipment Reduction, Additional Workforce Reduction

“Not so fast,” I said. “You’ll get sick.”

“I want it fast and hard,” she said. She drank the refill fast and poured again. The she kicked off her high-heeled pumps. She put down the bottle and pulled off her cotton dress and half slip. She staggered over to the window and sat on the sill.

She killed another drink and then tossed her long blond hair over her shoulder and shot me a backward glance, flashing the most evil smile since Eve grinned at Adam with the apple in her teeth.

“Come her,” she said. “Come here and kiss me…” Mmmmm… “More,” she hissed. “Much more.”

Note: We are going to go in a new direction with our online editorial at Bikernet and Cycle Source Magazine. We are using pulp fiction prose linked to 1 or 2 noir-style photographs. Our copy incorporates dialog that you would find in Hollywood crime dramas, which revolve around “Sex. Violence. Money.” The copy will be stylized along the great hardboiled detective writers including Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and John D. MacDonald.
