    i was looking to buy a press button fuel cap release for the street glide. £40 from kuryakyn or £20 from china. ia there anything that place doesn't make?
    if i was in charge i'd have every single container of goods that leaves there sanitized to a standard that's set by the receiving countries (not by the who as they're worse than useless) and the cost of doing so payed by the senders.
    the thing is though, we're all chuffed to bits to buy a 'phone charger for a quid on ebay so we're all guilty of supporting it.
    why can't we set up a small industrial units over here to make all the shite we buy from there? it's a win-win, folk have jobs to make stuff and we don't fund the likes of china anymore.
    sorry for the rant. i fully expect to be banned or this post deleted. even though i'm on the port i stand by everything i say.
    Brilliant!
    I agree with every word.

    All Harley chrome from the 2006 model year on, is made in China.

    Plus, I'm sure, many other parts on every Harley.

    Just another reason to own an older Harley, preferably at least pre millennium.

    i know, that's my point. everything's made over there to satisfy our greed for cheapness. we're all guilty for subsidising the place. they have absolutely no remorse for the state of the world right now. look at what they're attempting now with hong kong.
    life is cheap. like i said the only way to make governments and world leaders listen is through the pocket because they invariably pay scant attention to human rights.
