DonÂ’t hold your breath. Considering that this guy is retiring at 65, the way I figure it, the sporty engine has about another decade before they put it out to pasture.

I don't know what this means. I'm not looking to start a fight, but what's your reasoning here?

The Sportster engine is about 45yrs old, so I think he's (1/2 jokingly) implying that if Harley retires things after 65, then the Buells must have another 20 years to go, before expecting an engine replacement. -Sean

"Under Bleustein's leadership, Harley-Davidson's annual revenues grew from $1.5 billion in 1996 to $4.6 billion in 2003"



That'd be .6 billion in motorcycle sales and 4billion in chrome dice tire valve stem caps, genuine certified HD assless chaps, and "forward" foot control conversion to make the few bikes they make that might be comfortable to ride into idiotic looking torture racks like the rest of their line. VWW

Many are more comfortable on cruisers than torture rack sportbikes. One reason they dominate the motorcycle volume and scene.
