In spite of any opinions one way or the other on Buells/Harleys, competition is always healthy. Maybe it's time Honda got spanked...it will only improve the breed. Let the races begin!

All the go-fast part on the XBRR are going to be available through Buell dealers.



Are any of the ERION parts available to consumers? NO!



GO BUELL

Canadians spend half as a much per capita as US citizens and get roughly comparable health care. It is universal, too, which can't be said about the 40 million or so Americans without insurance of any sort.



Everything Canadian provinces have privatized, from natural gas to electricity has gone UP in price significantly. Sure, governments are inefficient compared to a typical private corporation, but they also are run in a non-profit fasion, and you would be surprised how much inefficiency you can have and still come in under a for-profit organization's prices.

LOL... except Honda isn't even contesting this class.



This is just another example of how screwed up the AMA is.



If they really want it to be Xtreme they should just make it "rung what you brung". Buell can bunch this motor out to 2L or whatever they think they need, privateers can show up with Busas or whatever they want, etc, etc, etc...

I like everything about the Buells, ESPECIALLY the engine. Robust, simple, torquey, smooth at speed, perfect for real-world street riding. To me, v-twins=motorcycle=v-twins. That old lump may be older than most of its riders, but its perfect for its application. And it sounds just wonderful...

You know it's been so boring around here that I was tempted to bite. Maybe if your lunacy had a new twist to it but it's the same tired old crap.



You would think a wealthy man like yourself would have enough brainpower to formulate some new topics.



Got that 5 year old Kawasaki paid off yet?

Default Roughly comparable

Is that why Canadian citizens stream across the border to pay for health care in the states out of their own pockets?

They did that a decade or so ago. King Kenny's team brought over a couple of GP 500s and mopped up. I think there were even some experiments with 250s runnning alcohol and nitrous. =8-0

I don't get bikes for free, I have to spend my own hard-earned.
