Ducati would consider Harley-Davidson merger ‘anytime,’ - June 14, 2007, 03:46 PM

From today's Financial Times:

This nugget from the secomd paragraph is particularly interesting:

Looks like FT is a bit behind the curve.

eventhough i love the idea, I have a feeling that Buell is coming out with their liquid cooled 2008 Buell. HD might not think its too neccessary for them to merge with Ducati.
If the merger does happen it will be great for HD, Buell and Ducati. Its a win, win situation.
they have to make it in a way that Ducati does not just pack up their bags and quit on HD whenever they want. it needs to be a lonmg term solid deal.
