You've got the sales figures already?

No more nonsense about Harley tradition etc.
Buells were advertised on the basis of "Harley tradition"? When?

This will outsell all other Buells put together.
Noted.

I'm pretty impressed by their security. I didn't see a whiff of this anywhere. Families must have been threatened.

Default As soon as this motor gets in a Uly

I'm all over it. I've liked the Ulysses from day one but the stories of detonation from the over tuned air cooled motor have kept me away.

Could somebody explain to me how it is that this piece of fresh, important news, posted today, could wind up the fifteenth-from-the-top thread in the "Buell News" sub-forum after fourteen older threads, under the "Old News" (!!!) sub-forum under the "Motorcycle News" sub-forum under "Motorcycle.Com General Discussion"?

Then could someone explain to me why the forum designer has not been slowly and painfully executed?

This forum design sucks so hard that it bends light.

Apparently the threads get listed in order of the latest post rather than in the date order of the original thread. It would be better if the threads were kept in date order like the old site. The new system makes it harder to find the particular thread you want since they move around all the time. The administrator is the guy to take it up with.

Except that the last post of the top thread was in January of '05. In fact, none of the threads above this one have earlier dates than today. The date order seems utterly random. Check it out.

You're right. I was referring to the regular forum page not the individual manufacturer link. As I said make your concerns known to the administrators. They are willing to listen and make changes. They have a special place for people like you.
