I bought a Blast for the wife and she and myself still ride her on occasion. Now they make a table top out of it which means anyone who bought one was a queer and whimp and should of never fallon for the ad's.

What a cheap way to be cool HD! You start mostly women on riding by way of ridin g a intro Blast then you slam the make and bike which probably sold you millions of bikes.

Your wonderful selling days are limited and that's from one who bought many Harley's over the years.

I'm now looking at the BMW R1200RT to be a cool guy!

Invest in Final Drive futures.............

(if the '09 IBR is indicative of anything - there were at least 3 or 4 'sploding rear hubs on this go-round)

I knew the Wide Glide was coming but bought a 2010 Victroy Hammer S instead. May have been a mistake but the new Hammer S just does better on all counts and it cost less. I've already got most of the stuff I'm going to mod it with. I hope HD gets through this in one piece.

No, that's not what it means. What it means is that Eric Buell wants to sell more bikes, and the Blast isn't good for marketing the other Buells. So they're only going to use Blasts for HD's Rider's Edge training program.
