The HD dealership has large touring bikes on the showroom floor with prices tags on them on them above $40K CDN. That's the price of a really nice luxury car.

I was given a $100 HD gift certificate a year back. I blew it on an albeit well made with embroidery instead of silk screening, long sleeve T shirt, that came to $100 with our 13% sales tax at the dealership. Walmart used to and perhaps still do sell HD T shirts for $12.
Damn! And you have to put up with cold weather as well. Sure hope the pay scale up there compensates. I believe I read that the average income in the US was around $48,000. Industrial States are more like $70,000.

Just did a quick search and saw that the Median Family income in Canada is $76,000, and $54,000 in the US.

Not sure how your socialized medicine works up there, but here I get $115 deducted out of my pay check every two weeks for my portion of health care. I have $900 more out of pocket per year in the form of deductibles and then still pay a co-pay or percentage for medical care up to $8000 a year cap.

My recent back surgery is going to cost me over $3000 out of pocket so I will have spent about $6000 to have insurance to cover this surgery.
