    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

    I just wish they didn't make so much donkey engine noise and go so fucking slow. The gay pirate duds are amusing.

    Now can we please get back to idiots fucking up on the dragon?

    Since you obviously know much about motorcycles, perhaps you can teach us about these inverted fours? :lol3

    Run on table scraps. Chase coons, rabbits and deer. Can easily do walking speed at idle with max torque available without having to rev the snot out of it. What do you want to know?
