For this I'm with ya. I'M SICK N TIRED OF MADE IN CHINA ON EVERYTHING!!! No wonder they live in huts and shacks... the entire country must be factories!!

To someone else who is more worldly traveled than I....

If you go to euro or south america... is everything there "made in china" or is it just the dumb americans that cut our own throats???

In pretty much every developed country, your going to find "made in china" stuff. The problem is....Do you want a $200 radio or do you want a $2000 radio. The only difference is one is made in china of sub standard parts, the other is made in the US by an uneducated moron. Most americans buy cheap stuff. If they wanted quality there would be no market for chinese made products. We have nobody to blame but our own country. [/rant]

True... but there will be a time when we as americans need to say enough is enough. I try to do my part. I pay attention to the tags and try to buy american products over others...if at all possible. I own to american vechicles and 2 american bikes. And I'm sure I could have gotten foriegn vechicles or bikes for less money but I made that decision.

I read a good article not long ago, It basically said that manufacturing standards in China were capable of being amongst the best in the world. but the reason they use cheap materials, and thereby a cheap product, is because there's a market for it.

The article concluded saying that if the worldwide need for cheap products ever dried up, China would simply go upmarket.

I race in the Motolite class, which has evolved from a class called "Buckets" The idea was based around small commuter bikes, 100cc 2 strokes, 150cc 4st twins or 175cc 4st singles. The evolution came about because parts are getting harder to find.

Enter the Jianshe. They make a brand new Honda XL 175 copy, that can be had for not a lot of money. the quality is fine, and there are two running in the front of our class, one in a highly modified CB125 frame (Marvic wheels, Showa shocks and forks, Brembo Brakes), and the other in an RS125 chassis.

My question... So is everything in China made in China? or made in the US? OR made in Korea.

as it is, I dont see too many quality american products, aside from Harley and Buell. everything is made in china, or some asian nation, its simply cheaper to manufacture the product there. sadly, its virtually impossible to get anything from a store that ISNT made in asia anymore. I miss the good days when american made meant quality.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

I guarantee you that's what it was. The container is made in China. Check the LABEL of the garlic itself, and it should say "product of _______". That will tell you about the garlic.

I hope you didn't throw away some good American garlic in a Chinese container

Guys like you need to do some research. Weather you like harley or not, the fact is they put out a very high quality product in almost every bike they produce. So until you rag on the harley bikes, you should try comparing the quality of your bike to theirs. Chances are your going to lost that contest.

in PA apparently they are moving everything to mexico. first hershey foods is shutting it's doors and going, now tyco electronics is relocating to mexico as well. lots of lost jobs in both instances.

i know i won't be buying hershey's chocolate once it defects to mexico. last thing i need is a bad case of montezuma's revenge.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?
