Screw that. Just buy a tube frame Buell for about 4 grand and hot rod the ***** out of it.

H-D plus sportbike components equals Buell.

The Buells look too much like crotch rockets.



The XR looks more like what standard bikes used to look like -- back when standard bikes could be ridden enthusiastically on a twisty road.

"H-D plus sportbike components equals Buell."



No, it equals "H-D Roadster." Different animal.

My local Harley dealer told me that it would be available sometime this fall? I wouldn't hold my breath.
