Does anyone else read that headline and get a mental image of Eric Buell with his pants 1/2 way down his butt, standing in front of a motorcycle saying: "Yeah baby, I'll bet you'd like to slide under this sweet ass...wouldn't you baby...WOULDN'T YOU!"

Or is it just me?

Think about this tidbit: EBR delivers a race spec 1190RR for under $50K! Considering the amount of mods you have to make to prep a bike to be a serious contender in ANY superbike series that, MOfos, is a great deal.

I read on another site that EB has been quoted as saying "Oh, it's going to be EXPENSIVE....." but not elaborating on that statement.

KD- is it time to talk the bosses at VS into backing a EBR/Geoff May season and F with the guys at CW??????? Just sayin'..............
If Geoff can make the 1125 compete in the top ten with little to no resources and sponsorship imagine what he will do with the 1190RR. He'll be in the top 5 more often than Pegram and I'm a huge Pegram fan! I like Geoff, too. He lives down the road from me. Nice guy.
Just a hmmmmmm thing to ponder.

Streetbike estimated retail guess of the day: $37,500.

That's actually a pretty good estimate. I was thinking it would slot in around $35,000 to $36,000.
