    No laws were broken so that won't get him very far. I work in Michigan and I have even signed papers stating that I am employed at will.

    Dealers don't make the product, they just sell it. They are independent businesses. I don't see why they would be that worried about it, enough to fire the guy anyway.

    getting hired or fired based upon a private personal purchase doesn't exactly scream free does it?

    Neither does a thousand other reasons people get hired and fire in the US AND Canada. But taking that person to court damn sure does look free. And changing the law on election day also does. And we extend more rights to baby seals and lawful gun owners.

    What if this guy needed a different bike because he always wanted one, and couldn't afford to drive his SUV to work with the high gas prices. He couldn't afford what they sold and found a killer deal on a cheap harley? Granted it's a different story.. but sheesh... some of y'all are mighty closed minded on this freedom thing.

    How many of you guys, if you worked for a company that sold only Gibson, would install a Gibson in your own house when you could afford your favorite brand?

    I laughed my ass off on THAT one! If a manufacture of tools were to bring me in (a non-employee) to fix their equipment, and denied me entry because my tools were a competitor's brand... I'd laugh, and laugh and laugh at this guy and tell him to not bother calling us again. hahahaha.... oh, this thread is getting interesting!
    Teach the apprentices right... and learn from their questions and ideas.
