    I had the same problem once. Corbin said my seat would be ready in 2 weeks, and 3 months later I drove out to california so they could finish it while I waited for an hour.

    NOT. eriK is doing just fine, thank you. and his future success will make h-d look even stupider than it already looks, by failing to take advantage of what eriK could have offered to h-d. :1drink

    I know Erik is doing fine. But it was indeed Erik who "eff'd" Erik at the MoCo.

    If you think what Harley-David looks stupid there is no helping you. They are doing fine and know there market better than just about any business on the planet. I would never own another feet forwad bike of any make but it doesn't mean they are bad. In fact feet forward bikes account for more than 70% of the road bike market. So spout your folly all you wish it won't harm a thing.

    no, wrong. h-d eff'd erik, erik didn't eff erik. unless, you think that erik eff'd erik by agreeing to hook up w/h-d in the first place...

    You know not of what you post. Go talk to Erik and ask him why they pulled the plug on Buell.

    i have read enough, including info from some insiders, to know that erik didn't eff erik. ya, i am sure erik will say, "h-d shut me down because i screwed myself". :rofl

    erik was too smart and too inovative and too honest for h-d, but that doesn't mean he eff'd himself, he was still hoesd by h-d.

    Erik made his own bed. The results were of HIS making. :deal

    Unlike you, Erik isn't sniveling about it. He is happy how things are going now and is ready to go into production with four more models that will be afordable. He has finacial backing in place... Just waiting for the economy to recover a little.

    i am far from sniveling. i am happy w/how things are going now, as well. but, i simply am calling it as i see it, re: how h-d treated erik buell.

    eff h-d, and i am so much happier erik is continuing w/o any h-d input. it's nice to know i won't have to go to an h-d dealership when i wanna look at the new buells. :clap this isn't sniveling, it is gloating! :deal

    You know I agree with you, I think he's in a way better place with EBR than he was with Buell. :1drink

    Seats are only needed for bikes that are ridden.

    Clearly you don't understand long stroke twins. If you don't believe they have a flatter torque curve than inverted fours then you don't know much about motorcycles. :norton
