For the Sox to even get this far is a miracle. They lost 2 all-stars for the year months ago and lost one of their best pitchers for the year right after the all-star break. If they had Crede, Contraras, and Quentin all year, they would have sewn it up weeks ago. Glad to see them still battling.

I bought one. Used. For some reason, Buells don't hold their value very well.

I also had a buddy that is a diehard Red Sox fan. He would ALWAYS b!tch about their shortcomings and how painful it was to be a Sox fan. By the end of 2003 he was a wreck. So I decided to follow the Red Sox in 2004 and kind of root for them. They end up winning the world series.

After that, I told my buddy I didn't see the big hardship in be a Red Sox fan. He told me to f#ck off.

Never understood people who took sports watching THAT serious.

Nice excuse. Blame the 'Evil Empire'.

Ever tried to get a ride on a Buell? Most HD dealers ignore you when you come looking at Buells. Salt Lake Harley built a whole new showroom for Buells and instead filled it with more cookie-cutteurs. South Valley Harley Shop has some Buells but if the right salesman isn't there you are SOL.

Some "salesmen" don't even like to "waste their time" on Sportsters. Good luck with the Buells there.

Imagine how many bikes HD would sell if there weren't so many sales people with their heads firmly inserted in their obamas.

Didn't HD just purchase MV Agusta? Hopefully this will help change the sales structure a bit.

I guess I haven't had the experience others may have had. I haven't had any problem getting a test ride on any Buell offered.Ever try to get a test ride on a Japanese bike? Good luck on that. At least Buell offers test rides. Let's face it, no amount of test riding will sell a bike that nobody REALLY wanted in the first place.

We have some real winners in Salt Lake. Not just HD. For example I know a couple of people who have flown to freaking Chicago to buy BMWs rather than deal with the idiots at Accolade. Accolade charges an extra 10% surcharge for parts on top of the usual highway robbery. Then there's my buddy who is very interested in a Ulysses and has the cash for one. He's been to three HD dealers and can't get anyone to talk to him about Buells. Weird.
