Sounds like buell is working to take over HD's dirt track effort.

Maybe. When all is said and done in a few years, I think Buell will be able to deliver a nicer bike for the money than BMW will. I saw a couple of F800s last week, and I wasn't impressed. The new "dirt" bikes appear to

be too heavy and expensive to compete with anything else out there. Harley needs to diversify its line, and E.B. is the guy to do it. I hope he sets his sights squarely on BMW.

American? Have you looked at the parts sourcing of the Buells? About the only thing American is the motor.

I have the older brother, SR500, that is doing just fine. Took it up the freeway yesterday with the speedo needle wagging between 85 and 95. I'm guessing maybe 80. Not bad uphill into a strong headwind. Man, do I need to get rid of that pipe! Poor cagers nearby were crying as I slowly went by.



I can certainly appreciate the hotted SRX though. But I really want something with that new bike smell that only has one lung and looks like a street bike.
