Oh Buz like I said before don't pity me.. I am quite fortunate. I think JB was just tired of the never ending KOOK bashing that had seemed to reach a fevered pitch. He was trying some reverse logic on you guys... oops sorry JB I gave it away.. Go Chargers...beat the Bears..in the Super Bowl

Default Re: Who says a small company can't compete with proper engines

Hey. Don't you know that MO is chock full of marketting/business geniuses who all work for someone else? Not one of them ever started a manufacturing company. But they certainly know what's best for HD/Buell.



Triumph gets kudos for selling 10K bikes. Eric sells more bikes and get lambasted for his "shortsightedness".



You can't get this on the Comedy Channel.

Default You guys remind me of a bad side to some Canadians

You guys almost define yourselves by bashing me. Like some Canadians bash the U.S. with some kind of inferiority complex..I think most Canadians are rightfully proud of their culture and country. But there are few (like you guys) who define themselves as being not Americans rather than Canadians.. You guys need some help....

OK, so it was more obvious than I thought. Here, I was reading more into it than was actually there - I was wracking my brain for some obscure Cowboy Philosophy reference (my coworker is a honest-to-goshness real-live ropin' ridin' brandin' steer-rasslin' cowboy in his off time -- to which he accepts the "necessary" ribbing with aplomb).

Most of the members in our evil organization aren't gray and don't have ponytails.



You must keep in mind that nearly everything out of kooks mouth is a lie. He used to describe himself as a young Michael Douglas on steroids in his mid 30s.



Then he admitted he was fat. Then he admits he's 40. Then he admits he has thinning hair.



I think Pdad is in his 30s and he's been a member for years. Longride and I are the only two that actually own a Harley. Maybe Neal does too.



Anyway, welcome aboard!

Canada has Culture?



Ae you sure you haven't been perusing the lab-literature in the waiting-room of your Wife's Ob-Gyn?

Default Wow you're right but... we should expect more.

Yep you make a good point it looks like he sells a little over 12K Buells a year..if you extrapolate the latest sales data for the first 9 months of 2006. Can't believe there are so many folks enamored with that Sportster Engine.. But imagine if he made Buell into the American Ducati....Guess I am going to have to test ride it. The Cyclone I tested was a pretty vibrating monster though.. Vibration is bad thing for most things...

I'm still kicking myself in the a$$ for that.
