Headed for the graveyard already. Seems strange to cause so much commotion, actually win the class then retire her, sad stuff even though I didnt care much for the odd match up with the 600's.

Harley management is f'ing nuts. They spend money like there's a printing press in the basement.

The stockholders should kick out everyone above Supervisor and start over. They must have wasted a billion f'ing dollars between the Buell fiasco, the MV Augusta purchase, etc. The board should demand refunds on any bonuses paid in the last 2 years as well.

Totally irresponsible, incompetent, management buffoonery. My 11 y/o does a better job managing money.

Isn't that what all the 'smart Americans' wanted them to do? I remember them all clamoring for a 'real motor' in the Buell, and a Harley sportbike. Both really bad ideas, but I'll take the real motored Buell!

Thumbs up Buells are ALIVE!

Buells will be further developed and produced and RACED in the future.

Erik will be making FEWER of them in his factory, but you CAN NOT keep a good man down... and he said he has some P L A N S for that Rotax engine to put out M O R E power, and anyone who has ever spoken with him KNOWS he has MORE development ideas in him for the chassis he designed that has been VERY COPIED by the bigboys in the business.

In other words, just stand by for further developments.

End of subject.

Well it's all John Burns' fault anyway. HE MADE ME BUY THAT XB9SX!

H-D wanted a piece of the performance bike pie, so they bought one, a small one, but a piece none the less. Suddenly it was acceptable for "tough guys" not just "tuners" to have a racing bike. So, in 5 years, 10 years will they keep fixing them so they have a "harley" or will they buy a "jap bike" to keep riding?
