Video: Erik Buell leaves Harley, looks happy again!

Erik Buell, the charismatic founder of Buell Motorcycles, has left Harley-Davidson to start his own race shop that will supply Buell racers.

Buell Motorcycles was closed by Harley a month ago as part of a plan to cut costs and Erik was told to work for Harley. At the time of the closure he made an emotional video in which he appeared close to tears.
