Are there any Buells old enough to race in an AHRMA race? I guess the design is quite historic.

Default OF course...

$1M is the theoretical max payout.



The question is, how much will they actually pay out?

There were NO buells in the Formula Twins or Formula IV race result I looked at.

Shawn Riley was riding for Vallejo HD-Buell and leading the Formula IV class in 2005 when I think he crashed hard or something and missed a big chunk of that season & 2006.



I heard Vallejo bought an XBRR, don't know if Shawn will be back to ride it.

They would have to finish in "the money" to get any. What a great way to get publicity for nothing. Very smart Buell, very smart.

So negative. It's the thought that counts.

AHRMA roadracing events include several modern bike classes(Battle of the Twins,Sound of Singles,Thruxton Cup,Super Mono,etc) to fill out the field.
