Exactly. It's going to happen sooner or later. Probably sooner than most people think.

Default Re: Predictions from the Great One

Well I must say I was totally amazed about the re-election. Had we had a president in Europe who makes a pigs ear of the country´s finances, turns a strong currency to a *****-money, starts a costly and newer-ending war by mistake and pushes the global oil prices highest ever... all I can say is this guy must have some utterly fantastic moral values if they got him chosen.

It won't fit. It's way too long and heavy. Although, you think they could use some of the engineering know-how to build a similar engine that fits.

Default defies logic

harley created buell so that it could build sportbikes without pissing off cruiser riders. it makes no sense for buell to build cruisers.



i do, however, wish harley would use the v-rod in a sport cruiser. THAT would be a cool bike.

Or, modify the frame to fit the engine. Seems like that would be the less expensive solution. But, what do I know?

Default Re: How come it takes a Buell?

I would like to know who owns the rights to the XB frame, Harley of Erik Buell; and, if Buell, whether, or not, it's a matter of a licensing agreement, and how long the contract is for (God! Am I a geek, or what?).



Who Knows? Maybe, someday, Buell will be able to license his frame to someone, who can really do something with it.



Chances are, though, it's gonna be a featured exhibit in The Museum of the Almost, But Not Quite

I agree, the VROD engine in a sport-touring chassis seems like a natural, and I'm surprised that we haven't seen one yet. It would be quite a shot across the bow of BMW (full disclosure: I own a BMW and a Buell M2, as well as a Kawi Vulcan, a true cruiser-based tourer). All I can figure is that H-D is reluctant to start possibly cannibalizing the market for their FL line.
