Now, I am not an accountant... but.

Right off the top, HALF of their income comes from being a bank, not selling motorcycles.
I am to lazy to go look, but are you sure its not a third? Though they are financing motorcycle sales, which allows them to sell more bikes.

I thought credit portion, was treated as a seperate company. Didn't Warren Buffet buy up alot of that debt, but he doesn't own Harley.
