Harley-Davidson Tries to Find Its Way--Again
"Years the harley davidson motorcycle brand has been well a little lost. Its us motorcycle. Sales have dropped about forty percent since their peak a decade ago and while the strategy in recent years was to try to appeal to a broader base of writers the company's attempts at turning things around including the recent rewire initiative and the newer. One called hard wire seem more focused on getting leaner and doubling down on the company's core customer base a few years ago harley davidson began its quest to woo younger customers. It's boomer customer. Base was aging. And let's face it. It's tougher to write a hog with a bum knee in back but younger customers aren't choosing motorcycles for their cool factor. A cnbc report says instead. They want ease of transportation so they look for more practical brands like honda. Even harleys bowl plans to get two million more riders. Taking to the road didn't seem to be working. They opened riding schools and launch the electric livewire motorcycle. You may remember telling you about that. One with its thirty thousand dollars starting cost well. None of that work then. Of course the pandemic hit last year. The company closed plants in march. It restarted manufacturing in. May but the company cut shipment to dealers by seventy percent through the end of the year according to business insider and what about customers renewed interest in outdoor recreation which spurred sales of big ticket items like boats and swimming pools last summer. Well it helped. But it didn't lift harley sales enough to overcome its losses in october new. Ceo yuck insights took out the scissors and began making cuts international production gone. So we're about a third of the models in the company's product lineup he encouraged dealerships to close and he trimmed the workforce to including product teams developing new motorcycle models. The wall street journal reports the orange and black brand is veering out of many international markets and focusing on roughly forty target areas in north america. Europe and asia. It also spun off its electric bicycle. Operations and entered into a distribution agreement with indian motorcycle. Company hero harley will be shipping fewer bikes to dealerships making supply limited that may be part of the strategy to especially as the weather gets warmer in motorcycle. Buying season begins. But we'll targeting smaller core base of customers who love big heavy hogs work in a world that increasingly wants sustainable economical and even sharable electric vehicles harley. Davidsons team may but investors don't seem sure stock prices dropped after the company's new five year strategic plan was unveiled revenue and profit targets were smaller than many expected bloomberg reports. And well. there just wasn't a lot of substance there as one analyst put. A lot of this is what we're going to do but not how we're going to do it. Plus electric motorcycles have momentum. Right now. The us jessica tended tax credits for electric motorcycles. Through the end of this year and last week. Electric motorcycle manufacturer. Zero motorcycles announced a partnership with motorcycle rental in tour company eagle writer. The deal may zero motorcycles. Part of eagle riders premium brand lineup with full-size electric motorcycles available for rent in five locations immediately. Even the name of harleys turnaround plan. Hard wire seems a little old school a wireless era but then again that may be the point harley as focused on its traditional audience will soon see whether the plan pays off where they've gotten their wires crossed

"This is nick. This jack and this is snacks daily. It is thursday february. Fourth is the best one yet. Today's pod so much better than yesterday's jack when we got our first story today harley davidson announced a five year plan yesterday that was so bad it got a twenty percent wall street smackdown. So jacqueline came up with a whole new five year. Playing get this one word ride leisurewear for our second story match. Group owns twenty five different dating apps. But what they're doing in japan is really interesting. Okay jack here. It goes ready one hundred bucks a year and they will. Have you married within a year nuptials or your money back guaranteed third and final story. Scotts miraclegro used to be your dad's lawn care company okay. So it's still that but it's also a cannabis business that helps double the stock in the past year. Before we hit those stories knackers. It was about a year ago today when nobody could find toilet paper anywhere. Jack i remember well then we couldn't find clorox. We couldn't find pure al then hair clippers bike since our does starters. They were gone from the shelves. Sour does too much work for one bad loaf of bread. I mean that's what it comes down to. You have to wait like two weeks before you actually bake. It's a long term investment. But smackers we have got an update to the hoarders almanac grape. Peanuts is the thing that if you have right now you better hang onto it because you can't find anywhere congratulations. It's the cereal you know that he kind of looks and feels like an iowa. Wheatfield grape nuts is an extremely crunchy. Cereal is extra packed with extra gluten. Can we get extra gluten on that. Is that possible sir. Now grape nuts goes back to eighteen ninety seven when breakfast meant scavenging for nuts and berries. By the way invented by mr john harvey kellogg and yet the company is not owned by kellogg's filled an interesting plot to us now. Grape nuts has an explanation for why there is a shortage of this not so popular serial. Right yeah our moms told us about this story by the way. Here's what they said. We are made using a proprietary technology and production process that isn't easily replicated translation. Yeah there's only one machine that makes this really denser jack. They should add it. Hey if anyone has a not machine we could. We use a great machine right now. We could use one way police. It would really help us out latest addition to the horrors almanac. Let's hit our three stories. Daily talks about the brain candy. They don't reflect the views proper her family. I we're not recommending any securities. It's not a research report or investment advice to offer or sale of a security business news video financial. llc member finra pc for our first story. scotts miracle gro classic. you don't get to talk about. Scott scotts miracle gro one twenty twenty thanks to launch. It's a publicly traded stock. That could win. Twenty twenty one. Thanks to cannabis jack. The the smell of fresh cut grass. Not something like wall street really knows about now now. They don't my brothers allergic to it but they do know. The smell of scotts miraclegro stock. Yes they do because the stock just rose five percent after some fantastic earnings. This company was founded in eighteen. Sixty six a few years after the civil war by a guy named scott who had some premium seeds that he sold this premium farmers somewhere. There's a weird connection between this engraved. Now today. they've got to business lines both of them pretty fascinating looking pretty good. The first is pretty straight but they call it. Us consumer products and that is why the stock jumped eighty six percent last year. The americans are spending more time at home than ever. And if you have a lawn you pimped your lawn. Scouts is known for their grassy analyzers garden products. Mulch don't forget the mulch. Now and sales of these products jumped one hundred fifty seven percent. Last quarter aren't next up. They're not doing this but they should sh movies. They gotta do a show some kind of promo net flex along cash movie series. We're thinking great. British bake off but instead of like a one cup one wheelbarrow when it makes much sense. The other business line is shocking one. It's called hawthorne and that is why investors are pumped about twenty twenty one for scott. All right get this. Knacker's scotts miracle. Gro apparently got a lot of cash on the side. They acquired fifty different. Companies focused on indoor growing in hydroponics a plant without the dirty soil. None just spray the roots that are dangling in the air with water and nutrients and you can do indoors. Okay so this hawthorn business. This indoor growing hydroponics business. It jumped seventy one percent last quarter increasingly thanks to marijuana. Scotts miraclegro is like the mom from. Hbo's we'd series from the mid two thousand yes. It is suburban mom on the outside classic cannabis dealer in the basement perfect. so jack. what's the takeaway for buddies over at scotts miracle gro investors think federal decriminalization is finally happened. Okay get this knacker's canvas stocks. They did more in the last month than they did in the last three years. That's because of january fifth when democrats took over the senate. This is the first big impact market. Okay so this week. The new senate majority leader. Senator chuck schumer. He announced his plans to end what he calls. The prohibition of cannabis he calls it the prohibition of cannabis because legalizing marijuana is a step in the right direction for racial justice so he believes that blacks historically have been targeted unfairly on marijuana possession. Charges still are so now we have the house of representatives the white house and the senate all control by one party and all are supportive of decriminalizing cannabis at the federal level. The federal level. That part is that is why. Fun comprised of popular cannabis docs is up seventy percent in the past one month. And since scotts miracle gro is pretty much half cannabis it's up twenty percent this month as well for our second story. This wild matches stock fell seven percent yesterday but jacqueline i noticed something interesting that it is doing with dating in japan if a dating feature works in japan will see on every dating app in every country. Okay jack before we get to the media staff. Let's focus on the numbers here. Revenue growth for match up seventeen percent in two thousand and twenty two point. Four billion dollars. Sounds like twenty twenty was pretty good for this dating app comparable good but at twenty twenty one. They expected to only be like marginally better. Which was kind of disappointing. We're still impressed with match right now. Considering dating situation singles are dealing with. If you're dating right now it's either digital or involves a rapid. Kobe tests also true story. My sister met her boyfriend getting cova test. Nick match group is based in the us. It's number one market. What do you think they're number two market for dating apps this trivia right here. It's not china. Not the biggest is not the most populous country now. The second biggest country outside the united states four match is japan japan. Revenues have grown six hundred percent for match group in japan in the last five years and half of matches users in japan or on tinder. The other half are on an interesting app called pears. Pears is owned by match group and they popularity is surging red and it's surging all because of one key critical one hundred dollars a year feature. They promised to get you married in a year. Yes they do. If you're paying one hundred bucks that's it. You just gotta use pairs engage. Twenty four seven wedding concierge. They're gonna serve up thirty potential husbands or wives a month for you now. the reason. This app is successful is because users self-select if you really want to settle down and get married use sign up for pairs and basically they give three months to actually date and then pairs will cut off the messaging after that. I'd love to see the push notification. That's like will you marry this person yes or now. Interestingly pairs engage is also competing against companies. That arranged marriages in japan yes. A small percentage of japanese people are in arranged marriages today. So jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over it match match isn't a dating company. It's a dating laboratory running twenty.

It has yogurt sauce felt for five straight years in a row to and what's final incredibly loud extremely Harley. Davidson. Motorcycles that's right. Five straight years now Harley, Davidson sales have fallen, which is why the new CEO Yolk in Zeitz has whipped up this five year turnaround plan. The man is a blue blooded. German. Executive coming from Puma where he worked for eighteen years. And Yoki can we call Yoki? We're GONNA go with yoke.

What was the result in the latest earnings sales shrank by eight percent last quarter but they somehow squeezed forty percent more profit out of those smaller sales we're talking the. Highest profit for Harley Davidson and five years. Yep. So facto, the stock twenty, two percent but we noticed something a little sinister naked as we read through this earnings or did I'm smelling some anti millennial bias from Yoke Zeitz and that's because Jack and I are looking at the previous CEO who added one hundred new smaller and cheaper bikes to Harley Davidson the previously a wanted my business so. Some bikes that were less American style lager more fruity styles, bike seltzer more raspberry fewer hops. Just what your? Jersey, he's cutting thirty percent of those new bikes that the previously CEO roll out to get him on the old CEO was pain during to US desperately, and we kinda loved it with cheaper and like even an electric bike they came out with last year. The key for the millennial focus bikes don't have them be incredibly loud. We didn't want offensive, but the new focus for Harley Davidson, they won only. Ten old big bikes that Dr two thirds of their sales Harley doesn't want to water down their brand. Now they think the old CEO is doing he wants to mean big expensive loud shopper. But if you're not motivated to tattoo tattooed on your left by then it's probably not worth being a Harley thing one dealer summed up the new CEO's changes with this. The brand is getting back to what we've always been the new Harley. Davidson's undoing the previous. Harley Davidson to go back to the old Harley Davidson. So Jack, what's the? Takeaway for our buddies over at Harley harleys going for a short term sugar high instead of long-term nutrition staffers. In the short term, this cost cutting plan of rewards Harley shareholders with a nice short term profit boost for now sales of harleys old school bikes are expected to stay up because boomer's are hitting the road during covid with beautiful joyrides in road trip. No Joke Jack. My Dad called me up every other day. He's been on the Harley. He goes into town. You know what they call him Mad Mike Mike on the bike. This strange Cova moment where people are traveling locally instead of getting on planes, it happens to align with Harley strategy, but long-term millennials don't want harleys. It looks like and this new strategy doesn't that major problem. Younger. Riders are choosing harleys competitors like Polaris and so this new strategy, it's a short term sugar high wind the big long term problem of not connecting with young writers that remains. Unsolved four our second story post mates is the first food delivery APP. Now, taken the full plunge into everything post mates. We're calling UBER'S GPA. Yes. We are any pig acquisition. That's right. Because Jack We know our geography. Well, Chicago Does Logistics Scottsdale does self driving car experimentation Los. Angeles. County does food delivery innovation a apparently because last year we told you about post Bates. adorable little delivery by. Could you name Mr who's adorable like wally with a new paint job role in the streets of L. A. Basically dish. Now Pat Dye was wonderful I would love if a snacker could send us a picture in the wild because I haven't seen one. We'd love to see that please at Nick of New York at Teaboy Jack in the meantime though Jack I noticed that pokes. Mate is expanding to full one hour delivery of anything through the APP. This was a three step master plan and it started Sunday during the LA RAMS NFL game. That's when they began promoting posts this new Los Angeles Rams pop up store during a commercial because he just got to get that New Jared Goff Jersey within forty minutes. While watching the game, there was a commercial on. Fox and push notifications to everyone in the L. A. Area that had the APP download. It was aggressive. So like instead of ordering pizza, you're like, wait a second I can use post mates for a little something more if you ended up buying that Jared Goff Jersey you're wearing the Jersey on top you want to wear like some nice outdoor voices sweats on the box es. He do which then led to step number two, which post meets just announced. Last night L. A. Residents who opened up their post mates APP are going to discover a new tab called shop and when you click on that new tab called, you're going to see if pretty diverse group of brands here got estee lauder you got parachute home he got bucked Mason Men's where it's a Wide Group this is like a shopping my got home, their clothing, their health in that corner even vinyl records have been curated on this APP but the shocking thing is this is all going down on a food delivery just like post meets gig delivery, people can go to a sushi place and bring it back to you. They can also go to your shoe place and bring. It back now you're getting sugar fish and the shoes. If you know, you know in La step three of the deliver anything master-plan post me this hasn't happened yet, but they've said it could happen and we think it has to in order to retain customers, flash sales and exclusives on the Pos mates APP by the way. Jack. This is so la everyone in perfect shape weather's incredible. But you have to have everything delivered the logistics elephant in the room. Yeah. How can they compete with Amazon is the big thing everyone's GonNa WanNa know every investor wants to know so jack and I think it comes down to two big value propositions from our buddies over at post mates advantage number one over Amazon speed. This is an instant gratification tool classic situation here you're. Hanging out your wake up Sunday morning boom dog accident on the sheets and wash Mateen's broken Jack. What are you going to do with these thanks host mates yourself a king size she set from parachute Oh and our lady got two thousand Thread Count Rivers happy and you can get back in bed. Well, Likud just made post mates verb all it took was once next or Jag. Advantage number two over Amazon. Rating small. Yeah. You're not going to be using post mates for power chords and batteries although you could. You're probably going to go to it for the local shops off Venice beach host made curated a bunch of cool companies and coal brands on the shop. APP. So it's a little different than Amazon. It's part of the broader Anti Amazon Alliance. We heard this story and we had some flashback two thousand sixteen didn't Uber Eats launch something called you've. Basically this deliver anything within New York City. It was exactly that Jack I tested out the one hour delivery window when I sent molly some frozen cookie dough from the West village all the way to Dumbo. Brooklyn. Did it melt it did not melt Uber Brush worked but they shut it down. So check what's the takeaway for our buddies over at post meets host mates. Is Uber's GPA it's Guinea. Pig Acquisition smackers post mates in two thousand twenty isn't the same post meets in two thousand, nineteen because it was acquired by Uber in July for two point, seven billion dollars. Host mates was the smallest of the big four delivery APPS and dominated just one market Los Angeles, and that means Uber Canal Street Post mates like a one city sized laboratory. Kind of like the Truman show situation. Uber's basically trying again here with post mates to deliver everything. So they can learn where they failed to do it themselves in New York, five years ago, and then they can adopt the best practices apply that to Uber. Eats Uber and then take on Amazon prime nationwide through Uber Post mates was acquired to gain market share in the Food delivery wars and be a guinea pig for some experimentation for third and final story. Three M's products are perfectly suited for the pandemic and yet it stock is down again the curious case of Minnesota's most famous comfort. That's all right. We gotta talk about Minnesota Mining and manufacturing company. They abbreviated the name to three for obvious reasons and they snag the ticker symbol m M. Your buddy from high school. It comes back through units like it's not Robert Anymore it's Bob. This company is famous for inventing the post it note and Scotch tape as three, and basically keeps your office together, and then the company made up of a chemists have factories. That's the core thing. That's what three end does in nineteen seventy two those chemists invented the N. ninety five mask in those factories. Mass that blocks ninety five percent of particular matter in the air from getting in your lung and three m just updated us on this wild statistic it has already sold one point, four, billion and ninety five mask this year. That's enough to cover a fifth of the world's population in N. Ninety, five mask side the time they're singing old, Lang Zayn they'll have sold two, billion and ninety five mass neck level. You did there. In the meantime though and if I massive pretty expensive for the rest of US yeah, they're expensive which is good for three. AM In fact, Amazon won't sell you a three. M and ninety five mask unless you somehow proved Amazon that you're a healthcare or frontline worker, you do some multiplication that one point four, billion times a nice little price tag on Amazon and you find out that two, hundred, thirty, five, million dollars in. Extra revenue came to three M courtesy of these and ninety five mask, and despite that huge bump from ninety five masks revenues. Overall three am only rose by four and a half percent last quarter when they reported earnings yesterday Jack, I know the stock actually fell three percent three am looks perfectly suited for the pandemic and yet it barely grew last. So admit Jack knifed to jump and snacks we got curious and we found. Out Three, it's basically three M's but four divisions it should be forum should be forum he got healthcare safety and industrial transportation and Consumer Jack where we got first healthcare is the division that has medical supplies for hospitals like gloves and robes, and then you get safety industrial. That's like home to three M's ninety five masks. He got the roofs, the insulation, the Steph around your home. You don't see the consumer stuff you do see. Tape Elmer's glue post it notes and then finally got the transportation and the Electronics Division these are parts behind the scenes in airplanes, ships, cars, and television. Now, the first three of those divisions cove winners pretty clear. You know safety industrial healthcare that's GonNa win in a pandemic. The last one is the only one that seems to be suffering from the pandemic. Boeing's not making airplanes for a year and a half not bad there. Biggest client is just not doing its thing and despite three of its four divisions being clear cove winners three m stock is down seventeen percent this year, it's a curious case. So Jack, what's the takeaway for our buddies over Minnesota at three? Am how the global economy goes. So goes three ASS knackers. The most important thing the three M. C. O. highlighted in his outlook for next year GDP growth. If the world's economy is growing, they will need three m materials say four building stuff we need three materials these chassis he's GonNa need some scotch tape. And Ninety five masks were really nice. Covert bumper three m but that is just one of the fifty five thousand products that three they make. Fifty five, thousand products in Minnesota three is so diversified. It's got products coming out of its ears out the economy grown over all the some of three M's parts simply won't grow since the global economy has shrunk twenty twenty. So has three Am Stock Price Jack Kenya whip up to takeaways for us over the Harley's new CEO has decided they're done China make millennials like, okay. Okay. For now but a ten years going to be an enormous problem. We're just saying that we're putting that out there for a second post posts is delivering everything. In one city, it's pair company Uber Is Guinea pigging posts, mates, knackers. If you do this, send us the picks for our third and final story three M's got three divisions that are clear. Covert winners fifty, five, thousand products, which feels like fifty thousand too many in a growing global economy. Now, time for a snack factor today this tweeted in by Chris Tongue in lovely San Diego California seven point eight, billion human beings are living on planet earth right.

Evel Knievel: Ramping Up To Glory
"Knievel Oh is one of the most iconic names of the twentieth century. There's a reason that people are still being compared to him nearly forty years after his last jump he rubbed elbows with Hollywood's greatest performed stunts. No one thought were possible. And pioneered the whole subject of stunting known as action sports which has blossomed into a multi multi billion dollar industry. Pretty much all of my favorite people of my childhood odor career to able able. Yeah I think we should preface this by saying most of our sources were just documentaries because there's a million documentaries on him The biggest one being being evil By Dick House House productions who did jackass a really good documentary She go check it out. After this absolutely I watched last night it is really good. Check it out on or wherever you can find it all right so Knievel performed over seventy five motorcycle jumps over his career. Most most of which were successful. Some were catastrophically unsuccessful. Many were on bikes. That weighed close to five hundred pounds. Most of the CAR Harley Davidsons. Yeah he loved Harley he he had a triumph Bonneville He actually started selling Honda motorcycles. which will get into? But I think that's crazy because Jeff I mean Jeremiah's motorcycle rider and he's like yeah it's like like motorcross jump. Bikes are like two hundred. Two hundred twenty pounds. He's jumping bike. That's three hundred pounds more than that. What's an an animal that was five hundred pounds grill? It's like jumping a hundred Yeah so these motorcycles are flat track bikes. That were. We're not designed to jump. As Joe said he also broke many many bones in his body and spent a lot of time in the hospital and against all odds he lived to a He lived to sixty nine years old. Nice Nice Nice for more impressive than his death. Defying stunts was eagles ability to act as his own promoter. Heitmann and publicist He knew how to pump up the drama and get the crowd on their feet I think that's my favorite part out of the documentary. I didn't know that evil was. He's like a handsome guy he's super now and just so confident like oozing confidence in every interview he does I. I guess it makes sense that he was so good at that. Because I mean you got I think if you have the mindset of like hey I'm going to jump over thirteen buses or whatever you also have to the confidence and be like I'm GonNa tell people who watch my stuff but like I don't know like you you talk to like race car drivers today. They're definitely there's only a few that only a few that can talk at all. Yeah EXAC- nerd. Best Friends with her dad. So it was very interesting seeing Mister Knievel and Action Green Anaconda by the way five hundred pounds. Wow which surprised me more because I. That's a big thing that makes a big meat tube. Evils Charisma inspired a new generation of stunt people around the world. He was a natural showman. con artist and outlaw. But he wasn't always evil He was born Robert. Craig Knievel on October thirteenth. Nineteen thirty in Butte Montana. Butte at the time was a small rough town known for the two things mindful of copper and bars full of miners. Robert's parents Robert Senior and an knievel gave birth to his brother. Nick a year later. Then They divorced soon after his mother moved to Reno and his father moved to California leaving Robert in Nick in the hands of their grandparents day says reading more round Butte and there is like three thirty thousand people in the town but there are three thousand prostitutes will serve all the miners so literally one tenth of the population was prostitutes. That means ten guys. We're doing the same Gal. Well Ignatius and Ama- knievel. His grandparents showered the kids with love and affection. Filling in a much-needed Ignatius We haven't Ignatius at donut. Then we haven't Agnosio. Yeah but like that's that's kind of a Sam his grandparents bought the boys Bicycles and toys and took in the fairs when Robert was eight Ignatius. Emma took him in his brother to a daredevil show. That would forever change his life from that point on the Joey Chitwood thrill show was a traveling. Extravaganza sends like a rockabilly band. Joey Chitwood Joe. Joey Joey Chitwood trill show played at the fair there. I'm surprised he didn't have his own signature. peachy cours So this extravaganza that featured stunt driver Joey Chitwood J. Turns and driving on two wheels and what amounted amounted to be a giant commercial for Chevrolet What really interested Young Kyu knievel? was the motorcycle stunts. Riders would smash new flaming boards at high speeds. They do we lease and jumped through flaming hoops. This show sparks something in Robert. In his words I would go home and take defenders of my bicycle and put clothes pins in cards so it sound like motorcycle. That was the start of his lifelong obsession with motorcycles. And

"But I think this last year there was a date conflict was running up against some other event in July. Maybe it wasn't maybe something this year is pre booked on the arena instead of X games. I can't remember they had to move it to the first of August. My thoughts on it. I liked I kinda liked the dates where it was at. Feel like August might be a little bit too late. I think June might even mid June might even be better. I feel like it's kind of. We're just getting into summer, then August is kind of the close out of summer. I don't know how it will work. I don't know with crowds. I know X games, obviously, very kid friendly. You gotta wonder if I know in Arizona where you're on school out of districts and things like that. So sometimes my August. I people are back in school. So I don't know if kids are back in school. It's not going to be a good date change at all. But if they're still on summer vacation, I don't think it will matter, but. Yeah. It's. I don't know. It's going to be interesting to see right. You. You can't predict these things. I mean, they I'm sure somebody somewhere thought it was going to be a solid change. So you've got to trust their judgment on it. I don't know if that's going to help attendance or not the move. I I really don't know. Maybe you know, maybe it will improve things the other one was right next to fourth of July. If you've never been to Minnesota in the over the fourth of July massive massive deal. Everybody heads up to the lakes things like that X game traditionally trail right after for the July people already taken off time off work and things like that said to get back into the groove. Maybe that affected attendance at X games. I don't know. So thoughts on the move. I honestly, I don't have thoughts on the move. I hate to say that I would love to see mid June by impersonal, but that's for personal reasons. I just feel like X games helps kick off the summer. But as far as the crowds. I don't know. What's it improves it as far as the next games reboot? I think we've passed over time after time after time. I think that moving to Minneapolis has been a very good thing for X games. You know, everything's in one arena. It's right there, you know, the therefore focusing more on their core sports and events like they like they were founded on. I mean, I would love to see things like wake boarding like cable park brought into X games. It's big in Minneapolis are in Minnesota wake boarding in general is I think there's some things where X games could bring in these sports. Wake skating is become big wake surfing has become massive. So there's things like that that could be brought in. I think things like flat track while I personally enjoy it. I don't know that it has a home in X games. But I understand the reasons why Harley Davidsons writing a big check things like that me personally. I would love to see stadium super trucks, backer, like players razor UTV racing like tear across type of thing. So, but you know, I don't know that engines actually need to be an X games. And I've said that publicly before to maybe. It's time for anything with an engine to go. That's not freestyle all racing events things like that. So I don't know, you know there. There's a lot with X games. I think you know, the parks are now really concise and like bowl type of thing. And I remember the big like parks that we're all spread out and things like that that they used to have were were really attracted to the. I maybe these new parks aren't quite, you know, the bowl type parks on quite as attractive to viewers and the people in person, you know, people like the big box jump ramps and stuff like that.

"So they're not even subject to the tariff and one other thing to mention President Trump likes to say there's a one hundred percent tariff on US motorcycles going into India. It's actually fifty percent tariffs. So there's a lot misleading, but Trump talks about this motorcycle tariff over and over and over it's just not that big of a deal. So Jason what has Trump trying to get out of all of this? This cynical view is Trump is trying to get a marketing win. He wants to say look what I did I opened up India. And if he can say, I opened it up. Harley Davidsons, even though there's three thousand Harley Davidsons being sold at India that already being built in India he can still marketed as a win. That's the cynical viewpoint. There's been as we've reported on the world escalating geopolitical tensions between India and Pakistan. Should we be paying attention to the timing of these tariffs? That is a good question. And that is one which truthfully I can't give you a good answer to because is this just a trade spat. That's been going on for a year and President Trump announced this today and spectacularly bad timing. Or is he trying to get some leverage over India? That depends on who you ask. But there are issues that India and the United States needs to work out there both concerned, for example, about growing aggression of China and South China Sea and getting rid of this system of preferential trade treatment for India is just a very very small part of it Harley Davidsons are very very small part of the overall relationship between India and the United States. So if I can leave you with one thought is that this is just a tiny. Piece of the US India, bilateral relationship. However, symbolically it's big it's poking an ally over and over in India might get tired of that. Jason margolis. Thanks very much. Thanks marco.

"You might be looking back at thirty years of drudgery as well. So I don't really fall into the drudgery campfire, I've never been good at that. And that's why as a river guide. I decide I am going to learn how to do this. I'm going to learn how to invest because I just couldn't see myself cranking away eight hours a day at some job for somebody and saving every penny. Just wasn't me. You know, what happened you wo- ribbon? And what did you do how you educate yourself inmate string of correct decisions looking back. It took a little bit of good karma. Tell you that. I nearly drowned a guy on the Grand Canyon in one thousand nine hundred eighty and he thought I saved his life as a result. He took me under his wing and said, look, I'm very good investor. Started with nothing, and I've made millions of dollars, and I'll make you my apprentice, if you want to learn, and it was just sort of that time, you know, we're I dunno Dharma Klay or something. I was ready to make a change. It just felt like I was done being a river guide after ten years. And this guy came out of nowhere. And one thing I've been fairly good at is. I've walked through the doors when they open, right? I sorta starting to feel like I'm in this windowless room, and I'm starting to get squeezed, and I don't know which my life should go. And then this door opens which was completely out of the blue and nothing to do with anything. I'd ever thought about in my life, and I decided okay, I'll walk through that door. And I ended up apprentice into this guy for a year, and I learned this style of investing that I continue to do now. And it's made me wealthy, and we teach it, and it's very simple. It comes straight from Warren buffet and Charlie Munger, and it's very very effective. But you have to learn it. It's not something you can just sort of piddle around with you have to actually learn it. And I like what Charlie says about it. He says, it's extreme. Family simple to do this kind of investing. And it really isn't. So what I learned in that year of being an apprentice was that I had to focus on businesses shouldn't think of them as stocks, right? I should think of them as businesses, and it didn't matter whether they were real estate businesses or franchises or laundromat downtown or business. I was gonna start on my own or buying a piece of somebody's company private or public. They were all just businesses. So looking at it as businesses, and then separating out just those ones I can understand which in nineteen eighty that eliminated most everything, and I focused down on just a handful of companies that I thought I could understand at that time. I felt I could understand Harley Davidsons pretty well. Because I was riding a Harley, and the first thing is that Charlie says, you gotta be capable of understanding the business that you're about to own a piece of our all of so that's pretty basic eliminate everything else. Then the second thing is make sure that business. Is a business that has some kind of way of protecting itself from competition that business that has what we call a moat, which is essentially the water around a castle. Right. And it's some sort of intrinsic competitive advantage. For example, if you are a railroad your competitive advantage that's built into the company is that you have railroad tracks, and it's really hard for anybody else to get railroad tracks. So if you're an airline, you have the landing space where you can come up to a terminal, and that's really hard to get. So you have to have a business. That's unique in the sense that it has some kind of protective advantage try to recap this. That's really wonderful advice. So in my case, I'm an opera. Boy, I love my MAC. I love my iphone an apple loyalist every book on apple. So clearly understand atlas a company so that would pass the a business I understand test. Secondly, I would look at apple and I would see do they have a moat and an apples case. Hell, yes. They have a moat..
