I just glanced at it but it does say since they are sold here, it only makes sense to build them here to save money. Either way, Kawasaki invests in our country while Hardly Davison is investing in China and India.

We are both kind of right. The cruisers and large crotch rockets are still made in Japan. Small crotch rockets are made in Thailand. The Concourse KZ1000 is made here.

The Kawasaki Concours, known in Europe as the GTR1000 and in USA as the ZG1000.. before it became...Concours, known as the Concours 14 in North America, and 1400GTR in other markets
now there used to be a kz 1000 made there up until around 1985.... the kz1000p was made there as well with the last one being built sometime in 2005, and of course the kz1300 voyager may have been built there as well....

my favorite.

Went on a summer trip and for the first time ever walked into a HD store, several actually, where they didn't sell motorcycles. I had never seen or heard of this before. I said where are the motorcycles, and my buddy said they just sell HD stuff here.... I laughed, and had absolutely nothing to look at. I do enjoy looking at HD bikes, but not just "stuff" LOL

This should be fun.
Well, I say " I AM American Made" my bike just like yours has parts from all over the world, I changed it from stock to how it is today in my garage which is in the USA, so I guess "My bike was put together (made) in the USA by an American" ..........Now lets ride, we both can agree, we ride American roads...and can dream that someday we may ride the roads where the parts that make up our bikes come from.

Its not a come back line, never feel that I have to come back, most riders understand its not where the bike came from, its the person riding it....The bike or the rider do not have to be American Made. The motorcycle owner who buys into only having that brand of bike and all the clothes (etc) to go with it, is just that a "motorcycle owner", I am and ride with, "motorcycle riders", who just like me, enjoy riding, whatever, wherever, whenever we can. Its not ownership of a motorcycle, its part of who I am. Parts (motorcycle or people) can come from anywhere.

07, Nomad, Fairing/Recurve windshield, 220 watt 4 speaker AM/FM USB/GPS, Cell holder/charger, Throttle lock, 12" Handlebars/Grips, Head Light Modulator, Trunk w/ top rack/backrest. Corbin Seat w/backrest, V and H pipes w/valkyrie end tips, Intake K and N 9" filters, Cobra FI Processor, Top & side rails on bags, leather covers w/pockets on rear bag guards. Foot pegs, one off lowers on engine guard, Wolo horn, extra running lights, fork lowers, pinstriping and chrome to bring out the black.
