Cool. Good publicity for the Big B, but that is absolutely insane.

So, what they're sayin' is: the Buell's brakes are SO bad, that they can't even bring the bike down from 120mph in less than 300metres; - even standing on its nose!



Why, I bet even the wimpiest-braked Harley full-dress cruiser could stop faster than that.............

Default Buell doing what Harley never could

It seems to me the "why" is patently obvious. The future is youth. You can only sell so many chrome encrusted Harley to the credit card biker crowd.



This type of record is just what Harley needs to provide the Buell with real "extreme sports" cred.

Huh. Probably could have gone 310 meters if not for that antiquated tractor engine.

How are Buell's sales? I mean, if they are selling, there is no impetus for them to change.
