Can’t imagine that SG and SS would be surprised by anything written about them and their performance. Get Garner out of there! Not sure about Skinner, or how independent he was to challenge Garners actions when things really started going off track. I like to think his motives may have been more centred on Norton than Garners, which were clearly on profit at all cost.

FWIW I think Garner will indeed be very surprised by the negative stuff written and said about him, and he’ll deny and defend to his last breath.

I worked for someone who has the same ‘psychological profile‘ as Garner. Nothing negative was ever his fault, he always did his best for the company, never broke any ‘real’ laws, etc, etc.

Its a lack of empathy, and a lack of responsibility for the impact of ones own actions, that I think is bordering on psychopathic.

I'm not sure of what my opinion is yet. I've read the whole interview. I can'y make heads or tails of whether he brought these former companies up or left a trail of destruction. Beemer loses the Rover to India. Harley was doing great for a while. Stocks flying. Here comes the Brit, introduces Harley to India, stocks in the shitter, sales at an all time low. Like Van Epps, it seems this guy just keeps looking for a job after he gets tossed. Even the ole lady wasn't following him to Milwaukee. I really need more detail than his seemingly bullshit story. I think failing companies are getting him on the cheap. Still glad TVS took an interest.

I knew John Russell in a previous life as a Harley dealer, Norton could not be in better hands. He is not only a very nice person, he has great integrity and experience. This is undoubtably the best thing that could happen to this great brand!

That's very encouraging news.
