Its a sad situation
Haven't been able to comment cause I couldn't get signed in, but, ho hum now I have.
Sad situation for Buell, and as for the commetns below, I laughed at some of them. We have two Buells in the garage both of which are great bikes. Both have done european tours nah bother at all, and I dont mind screaming from the rooftops that I am gutted!!
So what did we do when we found out the news we waited a day then contacted Harley Davidson, went down and got another one while we still could.
I believe HD have cut their nose of to spite there face, and even though I live in the UK trying to get Buell anything in America and Canada from a HD dealer is like trying to find tits on a fish!!!! You go in and they have an 1125r and naff all else, how do they expect to sell these amazing bikes???
They have released a lower fairing for the 1125r to help minimise the effect of the mufflers but does anyone know why they are there at all. Well if you are a fan of Buell then yeah cause you will have asked the question, nothing happens on these bikes by accident! I would have thought everyone would have realised that by now.
If I wanted to be a sheep I too would go back to a Jap bike, but I dont! As for reliability never had an issue in 8000 miles this year, however last year I spent loads of time waiting for bits for my honda, hmmm go figure??????????
It's a crying shame for those amongst us who dont want to ride a clone, and have a backbone to actually own what we love not giving a damn if it conforms to normality.
Hope you'll be back Buell, in the meantime I'll be enjoying my two and the new one until we see you rise from the ashes, and I'm praying we will
