I don't know what the circumstances are with Rowe, but I have to believe that they are different than those surrounding the N.O.S. company. There aren't many outfits that are located in the U.S.A. and employ U.S.A. workers who are paid real U.S.A. wages who actually make parts for our motorcycles, especially the older models. The Rowe name has always been synonomous with high quality. Lets hope that whoever steps in to take over this company will continue to follow the same path that Rowe has taken for so many years. I don't know enough about the situation to make an intelligent comment other than to say it gives me a bad feeling, like its a sign of the times. . .
