LMAO! give it a rest, Erik...I rank your success up there with my feelings about trusting anything Bill Gates says now that he's all altruistic.

My Uly...fun, but really crappy reliability as motorcycles go.

I'm sure plenty of sheeple will be willing spend whatever ridiculous price is set for overly complex, non-user serviceable, and in another couple of years another parts shortage when he shuts down again...but I digress.

Erik has nothing to do with this.

LAP has been making EBR bikes since they bought the company a few years ago, now they are slapping the Buell name on them.

I feel a bit as if bringing Buell back cheapens (slightly) my Ulysses. The book was closed on Buell. It was kind of a historic relic. Take for example my 2008 Husqvarna TE 610. Originally a Swedish company, it was sold to Cagiva (Italians) in 1987. They are the the company that developed this motorcycle, Then sold the company in 2007 to BMW. So my 2008 model was designed and built by Italians (using a Swedish name) but actually sold to me by BMW. BMW Sold the brand to KTM in 2013, where it remains. All the Huskys are good bikes, including my TE610, but the brand that dominated World Enduro Racing from the 1930's on has been tossed about so much it seems meaningless now. I feel that is happening with Buell.
