How will the factory liquidation, beginning June 7th, affect the homecoming plans? Specifically the auction held at the factory on June 8th....seems like it would either hurt, or be a great time to all gather and show our support.

It depends on what you think Home Coming is.
My bike returns to where it was made.
I get to spend time with other Buell enthusiasts.
The locals are friendly.
It's an excuse to go camping.
Erik may not be available.
Everything printed in green on the
AGENDA POST is still a go.

That's good to hear. My idea of homecoming is, and has been for the last 10 years, very similar. Not looking to be patronized, simply wondering if plans in place were affected by the recent news.

I just hope it is not messing up Erik's vacation in Europe.

I'm with Ourdee. The passion continues even if the factory isn't involved. We spend a couple of (fun) hours at the factory, but I go to enjoy the company of the other enthusiasts that show.

>>>>The passion continues even if the factory isn't involved.

Just as it was in it's earliest days . . . with folks like Phil, Dr. Don Chase and a couple other driving it.

As it should be.

It's a fitting tribute this year, after nearly 30 years, to the pure and absolute genius of Erik Buell, His talents started with motorcycles but extended on, to heights that other larger companies only dreamed of, to bring people of a common mind and shared zeal for life, together to celebrate American motorcycles, ingenuity, creativity, design, innovation and . . . well, friendship as like minded folks from over 2 dozen counties, formed the bonds of friendship.

Erik Buell has succeeded in every way possible.

And now . . . without further ado . . . we will wait for a special announcement, as our countdown continues, from the former summer intern at Buell Motor Company . . . . .

I have lots of things I should be doing that week of HC, but I've only been to one. This could be the last time I get to walk into the factory look around, and appreciate the vision and passion of the people who work/ed there. I might have to just forget all my other commitments and go anyway. Last year I met some of the finest people. People who understand the passion of riding just for the sake of the ride. People look at my choice of bike not as a compromise because I couldn't afford or handle a full dresser, but what it really is. What my bike is to me, is a bike that feels connected directly not just to the road, but also my to my soul.

Court, The intern in formerdom is due to step onto the stage after midnight this evening. Talk about your twisted double entendres. I hope it was worth the wait.

Man, I've got absolutely no idea who you guys are referring to.

I was a co-op student (12 weeks on, 12 weeks off) at Buell Motor Co., Inc. - and then, later, Buell Motorcycle Company...

I don't envy the challenge of whomever you are referring to, that's for sure!

I thought to myself today, HEY, I should figure out what I am packing on the bike for HC. Really trying to figure out the bed for this year, little tent/big tent? I do need to start packing lighter. I need to see if my side cases will fit in the solo tent with me.

Matt, can I hide in the trailer if it storms all day?

Well, since it's officially Friday - at least here in the Eastern Time Zone - I think it's time to post this:

13 days till HC2017

I sure hope my efforts lived up to everyone's expectations,
