This has been nearly a month in the making, but I have officially purchased my first ever brand new vehicle, a 2017 EBR 1190 SX in Strike Yellow (1 of 10 built in this color) with 6.8 miles on it. Bought it from James at Action Powersports and I will be flying up there Monday to pick it up, and after a few fun days, start the 1000 mile ride back home to Colorado.

I've been sending parts up to Aagard's place to install right after I pick up the bike, so it will look, sound, and perform just how I want it for the trip home. IDS programmable ECM, APH twin exit exhaust, 44t rear sprocket, twisted designs carbon fiber tail tidy, T-Rex engine case sliders, 50dro axle sliders, RX brake scoop, Flexi-Glass racing front fender, Rizoma mirrors, Motosox reservoir covers, and a Motion Pro Rev2 throttle setup. I have always optioned out my bikes, but usually over time, start a big project, and get bored before I ever really meet my end goal. I feel very blessed, fortunate, and thankful that through a perfect storm of situations, I was able to buy this bike and extras, and make it all come together for really what I consider to be a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I saw my bike at the EBR factory last month during the liquidation, so even though it's not technically at the factory anymore, it still feels more or less like I am picking it up from the factory. Showcasing this extremely rare bike on a ride I will never forget, that, because of my 1 y/o daughter and life in general moving on and getting busier, may not happen again for a very ling time, if ever. Also getting to ride up to Lambeau field is an extremely exciting opportunity in itself for this life-long Packer fan. Getting to meet so many new faces, see so many faces again, and, possibly, hopefully, the legend himself, is a dream come true for this new daddy : ) .

Congrats on both Ross! The kid and the bike but you will find that the daughter will cause you more grief and happiness than a Buell ever will. LOL Yes I have a daughter and a bunch of Buells.

Also you will LOVE the sound of the APH dual outlet system but bring some earplugs because it is LOUD and can make your ears ring after a while on the highway.

Good luck with everything!

I may be spending a little more time than I thought in Wisconsin. If I'm not mistaken Training Camp is starting!

as a victim of the non-stop, 365 Packer media deluge, I can tell you that they moved into St. Norberts dorms yesterday. So yes, training camp (and the lack now of any other news) has begun.

No, not a fan...

That sounds like an awesome adventure. We need thorough ride report with LOTS of photos.

Doris and I live about 25 miles from the airport and 5 from Action PS.

God; I am just so freakin' envious...

I'm not really into football much, so the trip up to Green Bay doesn't do anything for me, but getting a new SX sure does plenty.

Congratulations! I hope it's even more rewarding than you expect.

You've just bought one impressive and world-class superbike. Enjoy the hell out of it!

I'm in Fort Atkinson, WI....about 45 minutes West of Action PS. If you head my direction on your journey, hit me up. I'd pop out for a ride if available.

Congrats!

Small world! Last names?

It'll be a while before I have time to image host pics; easier to see them from facebook anyway. But the bike and I are now home safely. After 1507 miles and lots of hold ups, had overall a fantastic trips that really showcased the family relationship Buellers have, as I was extremely well taken care of everywhere I went.

Thanks Court! I agree. One of the best colors ever draped on an Erik Buell creation IMO.
