Stupid another american company leaving the USA So the deal is we don`t buy companies products that leave the USA. So only buy products completly made in the USA that is a very short list but let them stock up on inventory and the y will go out of bussiness because of no sales in the USA.

Well there are consumers around the world, not just in the good old USA!

More and more sales are increasing more outside the USA than In the USA!!

So using the consumers in Mexico to build ATVs that are used in Mexico makes a lot of sense...

ESPECIALLY when the use of motorized ATVs like 4 wheelers and snowmobiles is being severely limited by laws enacted by environmentalists. In FACT trails in Wisconsin near the Polaris plant were designated as NON-MOTORIZED use ONLY. I'd move my plant where the products are welcome JUST LIKE POLARIS!!!

BYE BYE USA!!!

The 515 former workers of the Polaris All Terrain Vehicle and Snowmobile company will not be buying cars, trucks and houses either as they live in a small town that does not have another big corporation that they can work for:
