Go ahead, look at your helmet, or your riding jacket, or that latest electronic addition to your bike and check for an indication of where it was made. It’s getting a lot harder to find anything with a tag that says Made in the USA. It’s been that way for some time as everyone is well aware, but the scale of the transition has gotten out of hand and recent events point to our reliance on China for even most of our pharmaceuticals and medical gear and our country is not alone in that regard. We’ve reached a point where it’s time to turn that around.
Do you make it in the USA?
If your company manufactures motorcycle parts, accessories, tools, supplies or anything related to the motorcycle business, and you make those items in the USA, let me know. I’m looking for you. I’ve been running more advertisements specifically focused on companies and products made in this country and I’d like to put a spotlight on more of them. If you know of a company that makes their products in the USA, let me know. If you’re starting a company to make products in the USA, let me know. The demand is there, the products are missing.
Wherever you are in the world, every country should be proud of what it makes and proud of the workforce that makes it. Here in the USA, and other countries, as well, we’ve let our jobs and businesses slip away as though they’re unimportant, well, they’re not, those jobs and businesses form the backbone of our economy and our country. Let’s bring them back. We can buy each other’s products, but let’s keep our jobs at home.
