"Buell Bile", good one!!



Speaking, hopefully not out of turn, for all us "mutts". We want nothing more than to see the Buells start to kick butt. But, that's not going to happen until the engine issues are worked out. Either by fixing the current set up or building/buying a new engine.



Eric seems to be a really smart fellow, it astounds me that he appears to be missing this fact?!

Taking the HD out of Buell would be like taking the APE out of apricots. The Aunt Jemimah out of syrup. The E Plurbis out of Unim.



Eric is a smart fellow, and judging by Buell sales lately he's giving people like me something that's not avaialble en mass.



Now taste the whip and bleed for me!

I wonder what all these people will say when EB does come out with an all-new kick-ass engine? U know something is in the works possibly a turbine or Wankel of some kind...

Oh they'll dis that too, saying it's a copy of something or it smells funny or isn't the right color.



It won't be an inline four, you can bet on that. Maybe a V-3? Yeah. Stick another cylinder in there...

U ever ride a Triumph triple? they are about coolest sounding engines ever. A V3 would be something else entirely i bet. And i got nothing to go on but i bet new Honda GP bike will be one. Buell will probly go W3 tho just to be different.



I am no businessman but didn't H-D just report best earnings in history of internal combustion or something? U know Buell is working on something. Probly nobody is as tired of Sportster as EB hisself i wager.

It does boggle the mind. You know every possible piston engine configutation had been tried by 1925. Overhead cams, sleeve valves, roatry valves, 4 valves, 5 valves, no valves.



I'd say it'll be an Uber-Sportster motor with OHC, water cooling and a gear driven primary.



Or a twingle like my Puch.

When u say "twingle like my Puch" it makes me want to touch myself...



I think EB should have been given a medal at some point for bringing the old beast to its present form.

On looks alone...hey, I just discovered teenager repellent.



My kid and her friends just barged into my home-office-bar looking for CDs and I ran them off with Vanilla Ice lyrics.



So take heed 'cause I'm a lyrical poet, LA is the scene in case 'ya didn't know it.



Word.
