I love Confederate Motorcycles and someday would like to see a P120 Fighter nestled amongst my other bikes.

Talking to the Birmingham News, Confederate Motorcycles spokesman Clay Morrison said that the boutique motorcycle firm will remain in Alabama, opting not to return to its origin of New Orleans. Expecting its best sales year ever, Confederate was reportedly offered $750,000 by the City of New Orleans to return to the bayou, but with most of its staff based out of Birmingham now, not to mention the supplier and vendor relationships the company has created in the Southern state, Confederate has decided to stay-put.

"The main thing is that most of our staff is from Birmingham and we've come to consider this our home," said Morrison. "To uproot our operation now with the new Hellcat starting production just did not make good business sense."
