Apart from the electric bicycle, there isn't much I can see that would fit the bill.

On the subject of Indians, I saw a ad online last night saying you could watch movies on youtube for free, not sure if it's a Christmas promotion or what. I scrolled through the list, turns out it's not their good movies... but The World's Fastest Indian was on the list of movies you can watch for free. I've never seen it, but I'll give it a try if I get the time.

It's a great movie; especially for motorcycle gear-heads like us. Definitely worth taking the time to watch.

I love that movie. So much so that I recommended it my movie loving, but not motorcycle riding, friend. It made an impression......he now has a Border Collie named Burt

It'd really be nice to know if the guy is that bothered by his name being spelled wrong. People here and on facebook always jump on people who type "Eric". My name is Josh, and at this point in my life I've just grown accustom to answering to Justin, Jason.... if it starts with a J, I'll answer. I feel like it's likely he's not nearly as bothered by it as other people are. Maybe he is though, who knows.

The answer is a little bit of a long story… And related to his mothers job when he was a child.

I know how you feel… As a male Courtney… Named after an English racecar driver… In the days when Courtney was a males name… I’ve learned answer to you about anything.

Interesting styling exercise, I guess?

5" too long, an inch too much trail and about 100lbs too heavy.

imho.

"... about the time Erik Buell was trying to keep the ship afloat by designing a complete motorcycle (that went on to be a best seller) for one of the major Japanese manufacturers. Good times."

What's the story here, Court?

I saw what looked like a bit of a Honda CX500/650 on the wall behind him at one point.

Seems like Erik was involved in bikes that had provisions for turbos : ) May be a coincidence. The CX500 (if he was involved with that one) had a turbo model. The early XB frames had a provision for turbo piping. Wish that had come to fruition. Love my factory Kawi 750 turbo. I’m not much for aftermarket systems.

Wow Court, you never cease to amaze: )

Thanks for the links to Mr. Galluzzi as well. Such an inspiration and a shocking example of how small our motorcycling world can be.
