Re: History Made In Gainesville
 
Who cares how fast some Hybrid Bike goes in a straight line whether it says Harley or Suzuki. I think Harleys are made for one thing and that is cruising and the sport bikes are made for Dragging your knee. I'll still be riding my sport bike and still wave at the Harley people. So you cares about drag racing anyway. Honda is #1 anyway

Great question
 
Its not that we hate Harley/Buell but take a look at the posts of the 7 dwarfs, even though I love to have fun with the little guys they bring it upon themselves.

On further thought its not that I dislike Buell in particular but itÂ’s the half truths and half lies that is part of the Buell marketing campaign.

Torquey engine, sportbike?

And this from the Buell website;"While traditional sport bikes use complex technology for the sole objective of speed, our mission is to develop and employ innovative technology only in as much as it enhances the ride. Because in the end, it's not how quickly you get there. It's how much fun you have on the way."

WTF does that mean?



A bigger question is why does the American public buy into this and why canÂ’t the US manufacture a sportbike that can compete with the Italians and Japanese?



When I toss one of the dwarfs I donÂ’t intend to insult all H-D/Buell riders just the 7 dwarfs.

Maybe they'd be better if he tried. See R.A.I.P. Number 1,285,472 (top).

How could this possibly remind you of Jessica Lynch? Some people will go to any length to take a stabb at President Bush.
