Sorry to hear that, not to pry but what ended up happening to the guy in the SUV? I hate seeing accidents that never get resolved, i had a friend of the family who was killed because some dumb broad run a stop sign at night and tboned his roadking and killed him and his wife. She got away with NOTHING because her daddy was friends with the local cops and her uncle was a cop and well, its bull ****.

On a differnt note, i would love to get my hands on a 305cc+ CL. we tried to start the '72 CL100 and its... well crap, doesn't start and needs a ton of work.

Default ...oh Well...

Look around for old Hondas, they're everywhere, lurking in garages all across this great land,just waiting to be unearthed. Back around 6 years ago, I found a pristine 1970 CL350 in a neighbors garage, had 1200 miles on it. It was a keeper. Here's a pic. Rode it more than I did anything else. Always ran, was pretty quick too.

About the guy who nailed me, nothing happened to him, he got a ticket for a incorrect lane change, or some such bs. The cops here in Burbank are deathly afraid of the ethnic group this a hole belongs to. They can get away with murder, or something close to it. And all the lawers I consulted with said the legal costs to persue this guy would ruin me financially, and if we did nail him, he's just go back to Arm**** and that would be the end of it.

I read in an interview with one of the Buell execs that a big part of the decision was the uncertainty regarding the future direction of the FIM/AMA rules for the 450s

Buell doesn't want to repeat the experience they had with his original bike, the 750cc two stroke... the class it was designed to race in was eliminated the same season the bike came out

ARMENIA.

Nope, the CL is long gone. Sold it in May after I got out of rehab, along with everything else that once made me happy (DT1, CR500, TC100, CB350, DT1MX, XL250, etc..etc...) I guess God said "That's it for you" and my biking days were done. Here's a shot of the fleet, from a year or so ago, before I got the XB9SX...

Not all Buells are bad. My XB9S runs great with no problems.

Sorry to hear you had such a bad time with yours.

"But.. but... but... isn't there an entire mob of people clamoring to buy the first American dirt bike? Just like they said they would all buy the first "proper" American sportbike? (Whatever that means)."

Sure. Just ask Cannondale.

"Sure. Just ask Cannondale"

It was that backwards cylinder head deal that freaked everyone out. Proper bikes have the carb BEHIND the cylinder head, not in front. Unless you're riding a Mustang, or old Cushman, that is...

I predict a two-stroke come back, when they get rid of loop scavenging, so it can run a four-stroke type lower end for crank/cylinder lubricaiton.

Notice in Cycle News the adds lately..."1997 YZ426, 30 hours on motor, must sell before she blows, best offer over $200.00".

... the way we open our country to these people and they come here and set up their little thug kingdoms. I know plenty about the Ar****** mafia.
